Popular concensus is to take it all at once (at a time of your choosing) so as to lose the addictive behavior of medicating oneself multiple times a day.
BUT some doctors do recommend taking in two doses: one in the morning and one at night. My husbands' doc being one of them.
Personally, I find that once in the morning works perfectly. I do it and don't think about it again until the next day. Don't have to bring any with me if I go somewhere and may not be home for that second dose. Plus, past the first week or so, there is so much buprenorphine in your system that you can make it a full 24 hrs without feeling any sort of withdrawal symptoms negating the twice daily dosage.
Hope this helps. There are many threads on this site on just this very topic.

I am prescribed for 24mg a day. My doctor tells me that it's best to take my first whole one right away in the morning. then every four hours, I'm supposed to take a half of one so that it carries me throughout the day. It's working so far. She says taking it this way, helps keep cravings away. Hopefully, you find this helpful.

I am perscribed 12 mg per day. I used to take all 12 mg at once in the morning. But since I have read and my doctor thinks so, I have been dividing the doses to try to help my chronic pain. I know sometimes this isnt a popular choice because of the addictive behavior aspect, but anyway....I usually take 8mg in the morning, then 4mg in the evening, and even sometimes I have tried 4-4-4, usually 8 hours in between if I go that route.

Good Luck!!!
