My doctor only gave me one strip of suboxone and says to use the full strip on day one. She tells me the affect will last me until my next appointment in one week. Am I crazy or does this sound right? I am planning on cutting the strip into several small strips to take daily until my next appointment. Can anyone give me any advice or info on the correct process?

no, the one strip will not last you for 7 days.

You need a new doctor! Maybe one strip every day.... Yeah you can only reasonable expect suboxone's effects to last 24 hours, maybe 48 if you have been taking it for a while. I've been taking suboxone for nearly three years now, with great success, actually, and I have actually forgotten to take it before and haven't really noticed until the next day. But I also have gone a couple of days without it and you start with typical w/d symptoms: the yawns, sweaty palms, anxiety, intestinal umm... distress lol. So if you take suboxone I recommend long term and when you do stop taking it, stop taking it very, very, very gradually.

You can cut them in half and take them 1/2 at a time.
