    Nice to see you posting again yes and hopefully you can begin to taper soon. I see where you might drop to 5 mg tomorrow so my best wishes to you.

    it sounds like you need to get with your doctor on a regimented taper. Give the Suboxone to your wife so you can't cheat. STRUGGLE to get through the >>>>>> evenings with no more med until the am. It's part of the process, unfortunately. I'm Day 18 now Sub free and things are DEFINITELY getting better each day now. I too have a patient wife. Thank the Lord for her keeping my Sub so I couldn't cheat. Hang in there and keep going: NO CHEATING!

Do I cute the strip into 4 and only take 3\4 in the am and do the same take 3\4 of a strip in the pm wait 4 days and go to 1\2 am and pm wait 4 days and so on? Thank you all in advance.

    Amy, why don't you start your own thread here so we can help easiy?

    16mg. is way too much. You've been on for 14 days? I'd try to drop to 12mg. right away. Go to 6mg. in the am and 6mg. in the PM, right now you have enough sub in your system you should be able to drop that much quickly without hardly feeling it. If you have a problem let us know. From there, get stable on the 12mg. per day. That shouldn't take long and then you can drop to 10mg. and from there we'll go down by the .25%. Check out google.com images for an image showing how to cut the strips. You don't have to worry about the little doses yet.I hate when docs put someone on that high of a dose of subs, totally unnecessary.

    If you need me to, I'll post a thread for for you.

    Peace,

    Iloerose

    You're going to get this!
