Question suboxone question

If suboxone has a 36 hour half-life, why is the recommended dosage the same amount that brought you out of withdrawals 2x per day? Doesnt the math seem funny on this? Arent you just putting more and more into your system on a daily basis? If there is a ceiling effect, why do they recommend that you keep putting more and more into your system? Am I missing something as I am rationalizing? Is my math flawed? If someone could help me understand the reason for the dosage, please help me. Has anyone else questioned this in the past?
