Found this disccussion on quitting sub and there are hydro users, oxy and heroin users discussing getting off of sub. I found it very informative.
First post on thread:
Hi, I have a big problem, I can’t get of Suboxone. Has this happened to anybody else? Is there any way to overcome this problem?
Just don't get back to it! Try never to forget the hell you had to go through before you decided to stop and during the withdrawals. Speaking from a personal experience- 10 years of heroine abuse. I didn't want to get hooked up on methadone or suboxene, so i rapid-detoxed myself, so to speak. I bought 460mg of liquid methadone and starting with 60, i lowered my dose almost each day for the next 10 days. When i had 50mg left i stopped it completely. I saved the 50mg in case i felt superbad, which actually didn't happen. I had 10 days of insomnia and RLS, some mild diarrhea but that was it. On day 11 i slept for the first time for 8 hours and it's been 2 years since. i still have those 50mg of methadone left:))
I also lost almost everything i had or loved before i decided to stop. People are right- you have to get to the bottom before you start going slowly up.
