Re: how do i get off subutex
The first time I stopped the suboxone, I had been on it about 4 months at 24mgs daily. I stopped cold turkey and thought I would die. I lost over40 pounds because I couldn't eat,and diarhea. It was torture. I stopped the sub in July and was still sick 2 months later. I devoloped gall stones from the lack of food,involuntary fasting the doctor said and started taking LARGE amounts of oxycodone. Of course I felt better then but then went through w/d again trying to come off those. It's such a viscious cicle. Now I'm back on sub for the 3rd time and trying to taper off instead of cold turkey. I hear this is the only way to go,if possible.The doctors tell me it won't kill you,you just have to watch your fluids and not become dehydrated. I wish you lots of luck.
