    Doing a slow taper is definitely the correct thing to do. It is a lot more comfortable and minimizes the effects or chance of protracted withdrawal. However, the decision for duration of treatment with Suboxone is unique to every patient. There is no right answer for everyone. I do agree with weaning down to the lowest effective dose, whatever that may be, after someone? is stabilized with induction. Take care and be well…..

    I’ve been prescribed suboxone for 2 years i just started my slow taper which is going to be another 1-2 years. I regret taking it so long I almost feel like i can’t don’t want to ever stop. If you have to do a suboxone treatment to get off opiates please dont let these doctors let you take it more than a few months and you dont need more than 8mg a day, not 24mg a day my doctor told me to take which i never ever would? take that much!

    Thankyou for your response..Am from the UK and I’ve been taking this medication? for 7 years.. Am at 1mgs presently. Am just concerned I do not notice much difference from when I was on 8mgs. I fear the half life of all the previous doses are masking any reduction symptoms. I was told once to hold at 0.4 or 0.2 for 3 or 4 months in order for the half life to wind down. The comfort meds I have are benzos and clonidine… Ialso have Gapapentine too, but heard you get withdrawals from that oo.

    Anxiety and insomnia are very common symptoms? of opioid withdrawal.
    I use gabapentin (Neurontin) a lot for sleep and anxiety. I have seen really great results with this medication.

    Thank-you for your question.

    Unfortunately, I cannot provide? specific medical advice. However, I can speak in general terms.

    The speed of the taper is basically determined by the severity of the withdrawal symptoms, the patient’s level of distress tolerance, and the skill of the physician managing the withdrawal symptoms. Patients should taper at their own pace. If someone needs to stay at a certain dose for two or three months before they feel ready to decrease, that is completely fine.

    What if you have been on Subutex for 7 years..Is going down to 0.25 for 3 weeks going? to suffice? or should one hold on to that dose for couple of months in order to eliminate the half lives from all those 7 years? Also what can one take to help Buprenorphine withdrawals? thanks!
