I have a wondersful taper schedule that my addictionologist gave to me. I have read for over two years a reasonable way and this one has been the best---I was on 16 mgs for over 3 yrs and this is what is working for me....

Week1-2-- 16 mgs

Weeks3-4--14mgs

Weeks5-6--12 mgs

Weeks7-8--10mgs

Weeks9-10--8mgs

Weeks11-12--6mgs

Weeks13-14--4mgs

This is where his plan differs from any that I have heard about...
Instead of going from 4mgs to 2mgs as some people suggests... He informs me to trick my receptors... while the end is written in two week increments... it can be altered to one wk increments if time or $ is a factor...

week 15 (4,4,3,4,4,3 pattern)
day 1- 4mgs
day 2- 4mgs
day 3- 3mgs
day 4- 4mgs
day 5- 4mgs
day 6- 3mgs
day 7- 4mgs

week 16 (4,3,3,4,3,3 pattern)
day1- 4mgs
day2- 3mgs
day3- 3mgs
day4- 4mgs
day5- 3mgs
day6- 3mgs
day7- 4mgs

week 17-18- 3mgs

weeks18-19 (3,3,2,3,3,2,3)

weeks 20-21 (3,2,2,3,2,2,3)

weeks22-23---2mgs

weeks 24-25--2,2,1,2,2,1,2

weeks 26-27--2,1,1,2,1,1,2

weeks28-29- 1mg

weeks30-31--1,1,0.5,1,1,0.5,1 (.5 is a quarter of a 2mg)

weeks 31-32--1,.5,.5,1,.5,.5,1

weeks33-34--.5

weeks 35-36--.5 every other day

weeks 37-38--.5 every 3rd day

I know this is a long post-- getting off suboxone is difficult, can but can be alot easier if this above is followed--- this taper schedule is just a suggestion and can be altered. I hope I made the patterns obvious as they can been done on a slower schedule(monthly) or quicker schedule ( weekly).... Good luck to all and may I highly recommend NA/AA/ or other 12 step meetings!
