    Thanks for the correction. My mistake.

    But this is about Judy right??

    Just offering something new that might help
    As I have no experience with liquid subs I'll look up the conversions and adjust from there.

    Thanks again and have a great night

    Sorry you're not feeling well again Judy. I realize how this is dragging you down. I also realize how confusing all the info you've received can be at times. I've given you my thoughts twice on the matter and what will hopefully get you on track to feeling better.

    Any good compound pharmacy can very easily convert MG's to ML's for you so that it won't be confusing. Just advise them you are starting over and want to go as slow as you possibly can and start up with very low MG's/ML's. I could easily give you the ML doses, but let the pharmacy do it for you.

    If this plan is going to have any chance of working you MUST be completely off the sub for at least 2 days. The longer you can remain off the better. If you can remain off for 3 days or more that would be beneficial. And once again when you start back up with the subs (if you do) don't take more than .25mg's which comes out to be 0.2ml's. Again, the pharmacy will convert the dose for you.

    After you dose you need to wait a full hour to give it time to work as sub works slower for some than it does others. After an hour if you need to dose again take the same amount and wait another hour as I've said previously. Do this until you're stable with little or no symptoms. That will get you on the lowest effective dose.

    Get through today and tomorrow as best you can then start the new plan on Friday. I'll be in many meetings during the next several days, but will do my best to pop in and check on you to see how you're doing.

    Randy

    Today I felt fine so far, I've been taking 1.35 mgs in the morning and the same at night, which I've been doing since Saturday I don't know why I'm feeling ok today but I'm grateful and today is my daughters graduating so I hope I stay ok rest of the day . I don't understand the medicine. Thank you guys for checking on me.

    Hello Judy hope the graduation went well.
    You should take 1.35 twice a day and stay at that dose for the next week. Take 1.35 @8am and 1.35@6pm everyday! Stick with that same dose and take it exactly at the same time every day! Keep the liquid under the tongue for at least 5 minutes before swallowing the medicine. Don't eat or drink anything for 20 minutes before or after you dose. Take your other meds in between your sub doses. Don't take the other medications anywhere close to the sub dose. You should stabilize on the subs if you follow directions precisely! After one week and if you are stable you can have the compound pharmacy make your new dose with a 25% reduction.
    You need to be Consistent take the same amount of sub at the same exact time everyday... Be well...

    Thank you for thinking of me, I been doing ok. I've been at 2.7mg for almost two weeks and Monday I taper to 2.5 mg I know its only a small taper but I have had so many problems tapering and unless I can stop the Subutex for three days ( which I tried and couldn't do it) I'm just going to go slow. I know you guys say take it slow but I don't know if you mean this slow Well I've down from 16 mg to where I'm at now !

    Awesome Judy. That's great. Isn't that so so weird that you can go from feeling so horrendous every day to somehow human again seemingly overnight?

    But it must be kind of reassuring right? You know you weren't crazy - that it was REAL. You weren't just imagining it.

    That's great you're getting to your next reduction. And under 2mg! That's great. Congrats. Enjoy the warm weather...

    Good morning!
    I'm doing really good, I don't post but I read! my taper is going really good. No problems except I gained 20lbs but I had lost 50lbs so that's good. I still want to thank you for everyone that has helped me to get this far, if it wasn't for all of you guys I wouldn't have made it, I still have a long way to go but I know I can do it.
