HALF-LIFE OF SUBOXONE AND SUBUTEX

It is important also to remember that one of the reasons that buprenorphine is so effective in medical detox is that it has a half-life (the time it takes for half of a drug to leave the body) of between 24–60 hours.  Opioids are generally classified as Schedule II drugs, but because they have less ability to be abused, Suboxone and Subutex are classified as Schedule III drugs.

Thank you very much Jimmy.
Have been dropping 0.2mg every 3 days for the past 22 days.  Started on 6mg 6 months ago.  Want to continue on present plan but have heard it gets worse once you start reducing under 2mg.  Chose 72 hours/3 days as I thought this may be the half life.  
Do you think I still might be all right to sticking to the 3 days?  Very mild WDs only - no probs.
All the best.
