| | suboxone withdrawel
fortunately, my opiate use was not that long in duration. it only took me 7 months of using 320 mg of oxycontin intranasally/day and a month of doing about about a bundle of heroin a day to hit rock bottom and have my family/girlfriend/friends stage an intervention, at which point i went to an 8 week outpatient program.
im clean since feb 18, which is like 112 days, no weed, no xanax, no nothing, except 8 mg suboxone/day. i am worried though about the eventual withdrawel i will feel from suboxone. i plan to taper off very slowly, like 7 mg for 10 days, 6 for 10 days, etc. however, i am in law school, i have a lot of pressure and just like i couldnt function as an opiate addict and had to take a semester off (i start again in the fall) i wont be able to function while withdrawing from suboxdone.
this is my first ever post and i would appreciate any stories of ppl who tapered or got off suboxone and could tell me their personal stories and whether or not they experienced withdrawel symptoms on suboxone.
