Re: On suboxone 5 months wanna taper any advice?
When I got down to 8mg my sub dr. had me take 8mg day 1 then 4mg. second day then 8mg. third day and back and forth like this for 2 weeks. This gives you an average of 6mg. After 2 weeks I went down to 4mg for 1 week and dropped 1 mg per week. After the last week on 1mg I jumped off completely. That last week on 1mg I had a little trouble with sleep but nothing at all like past wds. I,d wake up but I could go back to sleep. Ask your dr. for something to help like Ambien but you might not need it. All in all I found getting off the subs pretty easy. You can do it. Get a calender and write down your doses and stick with taper plan. Let me know if what I wrote about how I tapered confuses you. I,ll try to reword it differantly. Stay in touch.
