As Grainofsalt asked, is it for pain or for opioid dependence/addiction?? I use to take Suboxone, but right now I'm taking Subutex, which is basically the exact same thing but without the naloxone in it, I take 16mgs daily for chronic pain. Suboxone does have to be tapered very slowly from my understanding to get the most benifet from it when trying to use it to stop opiate addiction/dependence, but you should really talk to your doctor about this, they would be the best on how to stop it the right way. but if your taking it for addiction/dependence issues, then you should check out the NAABT websight (National Alliance of Advocates for Burenorphine Treatment), they have a forum called "Addiction Survivors" that would be more well suited in answering your questions on how everything buprenorphine (Suboxone/Subutex), as here we're more for chronic pain issues, but if you have chronic pain then this is a wonderful place to get advise, but like me, when I have questions about my use of Subutex, then I use that forum from NAABT. Just type in "NAABT" in Google, and it will be the first thing to pop up, then from there it will have a place that would lead you to the Addiction Survivors forum, or type in AddictionSurvivors dot ORG, and click on buprenorphine treatment and your there. they also have people there using Suboxone/Subutex for other reasons then addiction/dependence, like pain and depression.
