Post Suboxone Help????

Hello friends!
I started Suboxone about 20 days sober on 4mg for one week. Now I am on 8mg and I CANNOT stand the taste of this Suboxone! I've tried having a jolly rancher in my mouth while having the film under my tongue but it didn't work. I sometimes can't even let the subs fully dissolve because I start to gag so badly and have to spit it out.
I don't want to stop taking Subs though because they have helped me stay away from my mother's pain medicines as she goes through many surgeries at the moment.
If anyone has any tips or tricks on how to take suboxone, PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Yes, they taste really bad. I'm able to get 32mgs a day in my system by doing a few tricks.
1) make sure your mouth is moist. Take a drink of preferably water or juice if you have to before you put Suboxone under tongue. I use the 8mg strips and they desolve with in 60sec.
2) after Suboxone is fully desolved,drink something strong tasting preferably sweet. I use grape juice. Swish it around like mouth wash.
3) if you still have taste of Suboxone then eat something.
4) brush your teeth and tongue if you still taste it after all 3 things.
I use Suboxone for severe chonic pain. I'm still in a tramendous amount of pain but Suboxone has been a Godsend.
Stick with it. Good luck. Fiona
