I am brand new to Suboxone today...I was (wow, weird to say "was") addicted to Norco, 8-9 pills/day for over two years. I am seeing one of the few doctors in the area who can prescribe Suboxone, and he has suggested I start at 8mg day. I don't have a problem with anything else--became addicted to pain meds after a knee surgery.

Question is this...does 8mg sound low? high? I drink wine with dinner daily--no more than two glasses. The doctors don't want to tell you whether or not that's ok with Sub (i.e., will you have a drug interaction? is it dangerous like Tylenol with drinking, etc.?) because they think that, if you were addicted to vicodin, you will transfer your addiction to something else (e.g., alcohol). But, that is not the case for me. I just want to know whether or not I can continue to enjoy my wine with dinner while going through the Suboxone detox program. Anybody know? I can't get an answer anywhere. Also wondering about my dose of 8mg...normal?

Thanks!
