    Hey Elsie. Welcome!! Congratulations on taking your life back. Have you seen the suboxone taper plan?? It's the first thread marked "sticky" in the suboxone treatment sub forum. Give it a read. I'd do it twice. You need to be good and sick before you induct on subs. Otherwise you run the chance of precipitated withdrawals. Have you seen the COWS worksheet? Give it a Google. You need to score a 26 on the scale to be sure you can safely induct. Be honest and conservative with your scoring. Do it right so you only have to do it once. I promise you P/W are no joke and there is nothing you can do for them except wait it out.

    You said you have so.e subutex pills. What strength and how many do you have? Have you thought about going in to see a sub doctor?? The complete taper takes around 6 weeks from induction to jump day.

    Subs are crazy stong, and have a very long half life. Therefore you want to induct on the lowest possible effective dose. Which will probably be somewhere between 3-6 mg. So when you're ready to take your first dose start with .5mg yes point 5mg. Wait an hour then take another .5mg. Then continue taking .25mg increments every hour until you are stable (no w/d symptome) and that will be your initial dose.

    I'll be back in a little bit. Be sure to keep posting and let us know how we can help you further. You couldn't have found a better place!!!

    Have a great day, and again welcome!!

    I’m currently on day on of cold turkeying off of oxycodone. I can’t help you much with the sub. I’ve had only very little experience with them. The one thing I can say is DO NOT take it to soon. I’ve been through a handful of opiate detoxes/withdraws and precipitated withdraw from sub was quite a bit worse than anything else I’ve been through. Beefaroni has already given you some pretty good advice. I’m sure there will be more people posting shortly to help you out. Sorry I can’t offer much other than support. I know it’s rough. Keep your head up!
