I am on day 10, and I was taking 24 mg. It is not still in your system. :) some people just don't have bad withdrawals from suboxone. Mine were certainly nowhere near as bad as OxyContin. I did take some norcos to enable me to care for my son the first few days, but the withdrawals came on around day 4 like I never took them. I can't sleep and have restless leg feeling all over my body and the back pain is pretty annoying, but it's really just annoying. Anyway, I did have a bounce up yesterday, and then a few hours ago, my body just started zinging with burning chills and runny nose and eyes. I am just trying to remember that I've been through worse, and I can do it now too. Good luck! Hope your wd's don't get worse.

Oh, I have a sneaking suspicion that the withdrawals will stay at this level for about 30 days based on what I have heard.
