My doctor has had me on 16mg of suboxone daily after about a 2 year pill and heroin using streak. At the end I was up to about a gram of heroin a day insulfated. My question now is, will I have bad WD symptoms from stopping the bupe? I have been on this dose for about 5 weeks. I plan on going for one week at 8mg a day, one week at 4mg a day, one week at 2 mg a day, one week at 1 mg a day, and then one week at 1mg every other day and then 1 week at 1mg every 3 days. Do you think this is appropriate?
I going to be talking to my doctor about it on Monday but don't really trust MDs about stuff like this anymore. When I first started, he said it was not addictive and wouldn't be a problem to stop. So i stopped after two weeks cold turkey and was miserable after 3 days. I'd like to do this correctly and with as few WDs as possible, and trust the people on this site more than most doctors I have seen.
Thanks for any info and any help or advice on how to do this the best way possible.
