From what Ive read on here and heard from others, Id say the "average" dose for pain AND addiction is 16-24mg

Im perscribed 24, but can usually get away with 16, I think hatmaker is the same way??? but not 100% positive.

I dose twice a day, which is pretty normal for pain dosing, as the doctor says the pain relief aspect of suboxone last anywhere from 6-8 hours.

Hope that helps.

*remember that every one of us is different, with different pain control issues, and a different addiction history*

That's correct, I'm prescribed 16-24 mg per day, but usually I stick with 16. I have, however, known of people on sub for pain who took much lower doses (2-4mg). It really depends on the individual. I've said this before and I'll keep saying it because it's so important for all of us to hear: Don't compare your dose to that of others. You need what YOU need.
