Getting off of suboxone

Hi @mskay,

Suboxone can cause a dependency just like an opioid can. If you are not weaned off of it properly, (too quickly for example) you may experience the same withdrawal symptoms as you would from opioid withdrawal. I would encourage you to visit this page from Mayo Clinic, http://mayocl.in/2g1oqXq, for more information.

@pcinoregon, do you have any insight or suggestion?
@mskay, we would love to get to know you better; have you seen a doctor/psychiatrist for weaning off from Suboxone? If so, what do they recommend?

I'll be glad to offer what I know. It is not HARDER to taper off suboxone but it does take longer. To be successful, you must go VERY slowly. There are taper schedules online. If they tell one to take 1/2 mg less for two weeks until complete or something like that, you can do it. I did it and so can you.
