Ok Im new on this board but have been browsing for awhile and I have to say there is tons of information on here!
Well I had an 80 mg OC habit couple months ago and then I got on the Suboxone. After awhile I started to taper the Suboxone from about 8mg a day to 4mg then to 2mg until I was at about 1.5mg a day. During the past week I have tapered that down to about 0.5mg a day.
I've run out of suboxone and I am going overseas tomorrow. I know I'm going to have withdrawals, but the extent of which I don't know. Was wondering if anyone has quit taking Suboxone altogether from a low dose like this and the results? Whats always confusing about subs for me has been the fact that people stay on it for years and years. I've found it is pretty easy to taper it down, but don't know how easy to go cold turkey off it? The fact that I see most people remain on suboxone maintaince for years tells me that it should be pretty damn hard to stop it altogether?
Anyways, I've gotten great info about Loperamide as well. Didn't know this thing even worked! Does it?! Will it help with my withdrawals? And if I take it, how much should I take daily to get withdrawals at bay? Also, is it possible to get a buzz of this thing, even a small 10mg hydrocodone buzz? I've read mixing it with grapefruit juice will cause a good nod, is this true?
AND Finally! Everyone keeps talking about Tagamet? Where the hell do I get this stuff from? OTC? IT seeems everyone has it so is it easy to get or what?
Thanks for the info guys! BTW I am going to the Middle East, the capital of opium, God HELP ME! I might have to break my cold turkey!!
