Hi everyone,

I have been on Suboxone for 8 years. 8mg/2times per day.
I am now taking 4mg/2x day.
I have a Dr. appt. tomorrow. So, I don’t know exactly when she will taper me off 4mg 2/day.
She told me the last 2 weeks are going to be the worst.
I haven’t had many withdrawal symptoms yet but I am terrified!

I have my mind made up that I will make it because I hate Suboxone!!!!!

I do have a sponsor, and family support. I have heard so many horror stories . I don’t care how horrible and sick I am going to be. I’m trying to be positive and get Suboxone out of my life forever!!!!

Hi I'm also doing detox off Suboxone. This opiate rehabilitation program I'm in now is completely different from the one's I'm used to. I like my Dr she seems more engaged in my treatment and I am actually being completely honest and completely compliant. So I have faith it will work this time, all the other times i detoxed I did it out alone my instructions. I am a RN so I thought i could taper myself a few times and bad things always happened
I am doing better every day, so I'm told, lol. I to am on 4 mg twice a day. I'm starting a new job Monday and I'm beginning to work on the process of getting my nursing license reinstated. I'm also having cognitive issues and memory loss. I've been seeing that in a little of these posts on this page. Keep everyone updated. I like these "meetings" I will start going to one face to face meeting soon.sincerly optimistic
