I have been on Suboxone for 9 months at 24 mg. daily. My pain specialist and other doctors have decided that I need to go back on pain meds again, that being 1 percocet every 4 hours. When I tried Percocet while on Suboxone it sometimes made me sick and sometimes it just did nothing. So it has been decided to do a Suboxone taper. The formula for the taper is as follows:
Day 1...16 mg, Day 2....16mg, Day 3....8mg, Day 4....8 mg, Day 5....8 mg, Day 6....4mg. And also taking the percocet 1 every 4 hours. The idea is that after the 6th day the percocet will kick in and it would be a smooth transition without any sickness or withdrawals. Does this sound right to anyone else? I have heard many different ways to make the transition. I would appreciate any feedback you may have.
