Welcome to our forum, Dale. You will find the best family of people here. They are very smart and heart felt about others. We care about each other and when one of us feels badly, we all come together and help. I'm Barbara one of the moderators. Dee is our other one. She will come on and give you all the phone numbers for you to call. I can give you the number of the nurse: 1-877.782.6966. Well, I hope you will stay with us and let us know how you are.

Yours in the struggle,
Barbara

Barbara & Dee:
Thanks for the welcome. I am taking suboxene and I am interested in weaning myself off of it. I will, in due course, post to the appropriate forum once I figure out how to navigate around this BB. Again, many thanks.
Dale

HI Dale,
It is good to see you posting. How long have been on suboxone? Is there any particular reason why you want to start tapering off of your Suboxone?
If you feel that your body is ready to stop taking the Suboxone and you do it slowly it can be done.
All that matters is that you know you are ready. We are here to support you in any way that we are able to. There is a taper schedule for both 20 day and 36 days posted here on the forum: http://suboxone.activebb.net/questions-and-information-f5/50-reduction-schedule-taper-t93.htm

If you have any questions about posting on the forum let us know. I know at first glance it looks different than most forums. But hit the Home button and read down the index of topics. When you see the subject that your looking for, click on it, to create a new post in that topic hit the "New" button. You already now how to reply to a post, so I'll leave it there.
Welcome again Dale.
Yours in Recovery,
Dee

Thanks Dee, i will absorb everything and get back to the list with any additional questions. Fundamentally though, I want to get off of the drug because it costs money, time, and, generally, I believe that most meds should be used for the short term until a problem can be fixed; people with diseases like diabetes excepted.

Dale,
That's just it.
Addiction is a disease just like diabetes and heart disease. It is a disease of the brain.
It can't be fixed and it can't be cured. It can only be managed.
Some people can manage their addiction with out medication, and there are some people that can't.
That is why you will see some people content to stay on Suboxone the rest of their lives if need be. I am one of those people.
I admit Suboxone does cost money and doctors visits to cost both time and money.
Recovery with or without Suboxone will also cost time.
In order to succeed at recovery we have to be able and willing to invest whatever it takes.
Yours In Recovery,
Dee

Hi Dale, I wrote you out a whole long reply only to hit the wrong key and it's gone. Basically I said taper slowly. The number for the Suboxone nurse is:1(877)782-6966. They can be a big help. Deborah, our administrator wrote a really good guideline on tapering under Suboxone Issues.

Take it slow. Like Dee said, you may be on a low maintenance dose for quite a while. Everyone is different. You have to let your mind know what it is you want to do and hope you can do it. I'll be pulling for you. I'm down to two to four milligrams a day and hope to taper off too.

Yours in recovery,
Barbara
