need a success story

I need a success story and some advice. I have been on suboxene 8mg/2mg for about 6 months prescribed by my doctor after a 2 year addication to Norcos. I have been taking 1 pill in the a.m. and 1 pill in the p.m. I have been wanting to get off of Sub so I started taking 1/2 pill in the a.m. and 1/2 pill in the p.m. (I guess that means 4mg/1 mg every day). I decided to try taking 1/2 pill only in the a.m. Everything seemed fine but today, being the 3rd day, I seemed to be getting that anxiety. Anyway, is there a success story to getting off Sub? I read other posts about weaning, but honestly, I don't really understand them. Anyway, I am going to discuss this with my doctor this week I just wondered how others did this successfully. Thanks!

Re: need a success story

I would still do the Sub....that 36 hours I spent w/drawing from Norco was pure torment to say the least. But...in saying that...I haven't gotten of the Sub yet so I can't really answer that. Going from 2 pills to 1 pill was fine. No problems. I'm going to talk to my doctor this week to find out what her weaning plan is.

Re: need a success story

If you mean how did the Sub make me feel while I was w/drawing from Norco...it was a miracle! After about 30 minutes I felt OK and after 45 mintues I was a whole new person in the way I felt just an hour before. My doctor wanted me to be in full w/drawals before taking Sub and I was for sure! Ever since I have been on Sub my mind is clear, my family no more complains and I feel whole again. But I'm wanting off all my meds by the new year so I'm starting with the Sub. I hope this helps you.
