So i posted 2 weeks ago. Using subutex to break a 120 a day oxy habit! I started on 12 a daymg for the first day and it really worked great. tapering in 2 weeks to 2mg a day. So yeterday i went from taking 3 mg a day to 2 mg a day. That taper i am feeling now and getting wd from it . I think i am going to take 1 mg of subutex now since my Sunday is being ruined. Well subutex is really a miracle but its strong stuff , and i figure it being like 30mg oxy for every 1 mg of subutex!
Anyone have any advice now on what to do. I am going to stay on 3 mg a day for a few days and drop small amounts to get to 2 mg a day.Any advice on tapering now or should i stay at 2mg a day for a few months to kill my oxy habit.Thanks to all my new friends on here and also i hope everyone is doing good and enjoying teh feeling of being clean its so cool to be clean and have no wd and not have to worry about your next high . thanks Pointrider
This is a matter of personal choice. Just know it takes your body 3-4 days to adjust to each cut in dosage. If you want to keep tapering and your at 3mgs, wait 3-4 days or until your body is adjusted.. And then cut down slowly.
If you feel you will go right back to your DOC , then maybe you should stay on 1-2 mgs dose and maybe try dosing every other day.
You can do this. Stay Strong.
Thank you so much Sheri you are one of my favorite people,thats cool now that i think about it , so every cut i will feel a little bit !Can i take a little benzos to stop wd like at night after work Sheri and thanks for all your help pointrider Also today i am going to take 2mg, so nothing tonite or should i take half for a few days, wow this stuff is really strong.
Part of me is thinking maybe i should take 2mg a day for 3 months then do a slow taper, i mean i dont want to get hooked on subutex, but it does give me a lift when i take it . What does that mean i thought it does not get you high but when i take it i feel like i am getting high, i dont understand that part of it!Also it stops me of thinking of oxy and i feel like i am living life again, a day without junk was a bad day , now i think a day feeling normal is worth alot more everything sweems better.
If you feel you need a longer time and want to do a slower taper, that is what you should do.. If you are still thinking of the oxy's and feel you would go right back, then I would do a slow longer taper..
either way you will do just fine.. I am sure you will figure out what is the best path for you to take, and as long as you do not go backwards, YOU DOING GREAT!!
