hi-did you find a dr. to prescribe the sub?Basically-my initial detox to maintainence w/ suboxone-went something like this-2 mgs every few hours until you reach 16 mgs-the first 24 hrs-then next day take 8mgs-morning and afternoon-for the next 4 days-after 5 days-slowly ease down dosage by 2 mgs a day-till you are at 8 mgs-and stay at 8 mgs-
once stabilised at 8 mgs-i stayed there for several months-coming down 1/2 mg-every month-as you currently at 3 mgs-going down 1/2 per month-
i have been on sub for a yr. in november-w/o using any other opiates-the sub will give you time to concentrate of repairing your life-look at the past damage-w/o the interfering depression and craving that brings on relapse.
talk to your dr..they have basic prescribing info-the suboxone site-says that most patients do best at 12-16 mgs-but i assure you this is mostly for beginning doses-sub is a strong med-and you really can be held at lower doses..4-8 mgs-feeling fine/stable-
Good luck baseball-
