I tried a search. Maybe I don' t know how to use the search function well.


So, for a little intro, I have been on pain meds for many years because of 50 surgeries since 2004. I have been on Suboxone for about 8 months. I am now off suboxone and I am curious to know what is going to happen. I'm pretty SCARED!

Can anyone post a link to someone that has been on a similar taper as me Below is my taper
1 8mg tab a day regiment for about a month to the following taper----
3/4 tab for a week to 1/2 tab a week to 1/4 tab a week....then off
[list]

Just trying to find out what I am in for.

I believe it is a too fast of a taper. Should I campaign for a longer taper???

Thanks for any help or support

So far ive read that you should stay at a particular dosage for at least 2 wks at a time and cutting less than a qtr ea time you lower. Yes you should go with a longer taper IMHO it will make W/Ds much easier.
However! you will W/D in any case. If you can tuff it out right now then do so.
