    Default 8mg Suboxone

    Is 8mg a relatively low dose? I was never on anymore, and have not had the drug since Tuesday. I have not had any w/d symptoms and I'm wondering if it is because I was only on 8mg per day for about 4 months. Any info would be greatly appreciated as I took vacation this week to dry out, and have yet to feel bad. I would hate to start feeling bad when I have to go back to work:)

    How did you feel yesterday? I keep waiting for something bad to happen and I'm afraid I may talk myself into something that won't even happen. After reading these posts it seems to me I should be going through hell now. I've been off for 5 days and nothing. I had about 5.5 to 6mg on Tuesday morning. Thanks for responding.

    8mg is a pretty heavy dose actually. But if you're feeling okay, don't let us talk you out of it. Just say "thanks" to your favorite deity, and don't let the fact that you got off easy this time lead you down the relapse highway.

    I agree! 8mg. is a heavy dose.

    One should try to try 4mg. wait an hour to see weather they can stablize using that and if not add 2mg..

    I wonder what the equivlent is to DONEs or something as I worked hard to get to 10mg. of Dones and then switched to SUB because if I to DETROX they would use SUB to get me off DONE's.
