:?: There has to be a way to get off without withdrawals. Anybody? I wil take whatever meds will help. In combo with tapering what do you think would work not just clonodine and over counter bs .....?.. I got on suboxone for pain mistakenly, not addiction so this stuff is the worst withdrawal ive ever known. I didnt know it would have wd until i quit and i got back on. Since theres no risk of relapse to DOC. I'm even open to taking short term short acting opioids to stop. Can anyone suggest anything.

Tapering is probably the best thing you can do, imo. I'm on day 5 sub WD right now & I feel about 75% okay, which is AWESOME considering what I was expecting. I tapered down to .75 of a 2mg strip, so a little less than a mg.

It all depends on how low do you plan to taper? Obviously the lower you taper, the less WD you'll feel when the time comes. Clonodine is really good to have just in case WDs aren't tolerable.

I'm not a doctor or anything, but this is just what has worked for ME.
1. WEED - weed helps TREMENDOUSLY.

2. Klonopin - obviously for the dreaded anxiety. Has helped me a lot.

3. Imodium - it's an antidiarrheal, but it has some sort of opiate or opiate-like chemical in it, so that has seemed to help as well.

4. Dicyclomne (Bentyl) - helps with the stomach cramps.

Vitamins & supplements also will help you out a lot as well. For example taking magnesium for RLS, B complex for energy, melatonin for sleep. It's also important to stay hydrated & continue to eat.

I think that if you taper yourself low enough, you won't even need a short acting opiod. If you decide to, I would use a super weak one like tramadol or something.

Best of luck! Hope this helped.
