    Cool Re: how to detox off heroin using suboxone?

    I found easiest way after detoxing a few times usin methadone etc was to detox using sub over a very short period as its hard to come off after a long period of time. i did it in just over a week starting off on 12 mg of sub on 1st day, then 16mg 2nd day, 12 3rd,8 4th, 4 on 5th day, 2 on 6th, 0.8 on 7th and 0.4 8th day. didnt feel any opiate high off the subutex so felt slightly jittery during that week. once i stopped the taper i had 2 or 3 sleepless nights (which prob could have been avoided had i had some benzos) then got better day by day after that. i had been a heroin addict for 13 years and detoxed many times but that was by far the quickest and most painless detox i have ever done and would recommend it to anyone. also i would use subutex rather than suboxone (same drug without naloxone anyway) purely, as suboxones smallest dose is a 4 mg tablet so is harder to judge, and subutex tablets go all the way down to 0.2mg, so is far easier to get a precise dose!!
