Okay guys, I have been on 4mg (half a 8mg film) for a while and tapered to 3mg today. Here is the kicker-I used 1.5 2mg films and felt HIGH-like it was too much!!! I had to go to sleep even.
I am going to just do 2mg with the 2mg films since I feel like 3mg is too much-but it didnt feel that strong when I cut up the larger 8mg films...interesting because you would think that maybe it'd be the same. I guess its more evenly distributed in the 2mg and I am getting the "full" dose as opposed to cutting the 8mgs into pieces.

anyway, wish me luck with the 2mg. I am going to do 2mg tomorrow of the 2mg films, then 3mg of the 8mg films every other day for a week then stick to 2mg. I may just stick to 2mg if I feel fine.
Anyone else go through this??

you can certainly try the 2, remember you'll have the 4mg then the 3 mg for 3 days or so. (stacking effect and long half life) You may notice symptoms possibly on monday-ish. Try to push through and stay distracted. Use your comfort meds and just hang at that for a couple of weeks. xoxo

I'm suspicious that the doses between the 2mg and 8mg tablets are also a bit out of whack. ie 4 x 2mg pills never seems to have the same level of effect as 1 x 8mg pill.

I thought I read on here that when you go below the 4 mg ceiling, sub acts more like a full agonist, meaning that you are more likely to feel "high" from it? I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong about that.

Good luck with your taper!

I feel the effect at 1.50 mg's so it shows just how strong Sub is. Not that I feel high, just want to sleep for a bit.

Jenzo, why don't you ask for the 2mg strips? It sure makes it easier to cut them.

Next week I'm going down to 1mg. We'll see how that goes.
