I know that no one has posted here in a long time, but I just came across this thread with questions about getting off Suboxone and thought I'ld throw in my 2 cents worth.

I took the drug following a 10-year addiction to pain killers, and over the course of 5 months, my doctor weaned me down to 1/2 pill (8mg/2mg) a day. That lasted for 2 months, then one month of 1/2 pill every other day, and then I was done.

Other then some mild discomfort the first few days (ibuprofen took care of that), I was fine.

Hope this helps and I hope you're on the road to recovery by now.
