Addiction & Recovery board


:wave: Hi Gina,
Although I tried many times to taper I was not successful (I was also on about 10 x the dose you are). I am using subutex and have been clean 40 days. So you are doing the right thing at the right time before it gets totally out of control. I know you will find the comfort and support you need here at this board. Many people have gotten off their DOC by tapering. I believe some use an antianxiety med like valium, xanax, or other diazepam, just for a short period to help with sleep, muscle aches and anxiety. Try and do a search at the top of the page and you should get some good info from there as well. Good Luck and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. LisaC2 :)
