    The boards are slower in the weekend, give it a little time and people will respond. Please try to stick to one thread, it gets confusing if we have to check multiple threads.

    I just answered your other post.

    Sorry, Sharks, I asked her to post on this forum for the sub stuff. So let's move the thread here, if that's good for everyone.

    Vickie: I'm sure the advice that Sharks gave you is good advice and will try to see where we're at so far. It does seem that your sub taper is all over the place and you doc doesn't seem very helpful as far as getting you through this taper. Let me read what Sharks posted to you and go from there. You'll get this!

    Peace,

    hi I've started new threads but as yet had no answers I've checked out lots of ppl's tapers & they all stem from Roberts taper the only problem is I tried the 4 day 25% reduction but by day 6/7 I was feeling pretty bad w/ds at night I'm now stable on 2mg been on about 2 weeks now & tomorrow I drop but my dr will only give me 4 0.4 subutex tablets which makes 1.6 I would like to do 1.75 as if some 1 had my body would know that little crumb makes all the difference do u think doing a slower taper will let me b free of subutex soon or should I do a lofexidine detox & jump at 1mg or when ever the w/ds are so bad that I may as well jump a confused mum of 3 hypo children thx 4 any help or support I greatly need it

    Here is what you posted that Sharks replied to. Please read the taper plan. And try to sort out to us: I take it you go daily for your sub dose? Please let us know how exactly how this is working with the sub and how you get it so we can help you plan a taper around your daily dose. Can you get take homes?

    Peace,

    Iloerose
