Does your sub withdrawal severiety depend on the amount of time you spent on your DOC and the duration you spent on subs?

That is a really good question and is one that is debated regularly. There is no evidence that supports the idea that the longer one is on suboxone the harder it is to come off it. However, many people feel differently about that, due to their own personal experience. The one thing that seems to make the most difference in the severity of the withdrawals is the kind of taper the person does when they go off it. That and their state of mind. I personally believe that the more they fear withdrawals and the more they perseverate on their withdrawal symptoms, the worse it will be. But like I said, that's just my opinion. We discussed this in its own thread once.

I'm sure you'll get lots more opinions. This is just my two cents. Good question though.

I really think its very hard to say. One thing that almost definitely affects the severity is the dose you jump off at. If your trying to minimize withdrawal severity i would def taper as low as possible.
