I have been on 16-24mg of subutex for about four years. Before that I was addicted to herion and OxyContin and pretty much any opiate and benzo. I recently started taking Subsolv 5.7 mg 3 times a day . The taste is awesome. It taste like a menthol breath mint. I was wondering if it matters what time of day you take it, and if I should take all three at once or three different times a day? I have been taking one when I wake up. One at lunch, and one when I go to sleep. Does anyone know when is the best way to take them?

Oxy,

I'll give you MY opinion, and I imagine others will chime in with there's soon. It is best to take your medication once a day, generally first thing in the morning. The theory being that multiple dosing reinforces some of the addictive behaviors...you get to "looking forward" to the afternoon dose, etc. The half-life of bupe is roughly 37 hours depending on your metabolism, so once-daily dosing should work out alright.

You may want to try changing to just twice a day for a week or two (take 2 in the morning, and 1 in the afternoon/evening), then maybe change to taking all 3 in the morning. THEN, maybe you could start tapering that down to 2 and 1/2 a day for a few weeks, and on and one if you feel comfortable doing that. You are the one who can determine what you need, but I imagine that you could get by on 2 or even 1 tablet a day.

Whatever you decide to do, keep us posted on how you're doing.

Thanks,
Morphing

If you are taking for pain as well as dependance, it is better to take every 3-4 hrs, whatever your daily dose is divided inyo as many smaller doses. If no pain, one p er day then for the reasons stated by the poster above.
