Anyone gotten off suboxone with minimal withdrawals?
I posted recently about this and didn't get many replies. Since then, I relapsed on heroin unfortunately. It lasted a couple weeks yet I went through hundreds upon hundreds of dollars and have really damaged myself bad. I couldn't stand the withdrawal for any length of time, as opiate withdrawals make me literally suicidally depressed and anxious to the point of pure terror. So, I'm back on the suboxone, varying the dosage from day to day depending on how I feel, hanging around 8 mg a day.
I've been planning on getting off the stuff for awhile, but I've researched it extensively and everyone has these horrible horror stories about it being as bad as OC or heroin withdrawal and lasting 3x as long. Has anyone successfully and mostly painlessly withdrawn from suboxone? If so, what was your taper plan like and how long did it take? I'm scared of relapsing, but I'm scared of being on suboxone again for another year. I'm so sick of all of this. With the damage I did during my last relapse, I can't even afford to be on suboxone for much longer. Please help.
