    Rose has it right...i would even go as far as to say suboxone quitting suboxone is just as harsd as anything else if not moreso because of the long half life...
    true hard opiates like H will make you feel like you wanna die...but only last a week tops...
    suboxone the withdrawals are A LOT milder but last A LOT longer....
    its a toss up really...but i would say sub the lesser evil...but still no joke....you ain't outta the woods yet...you need a plan...jay

      Hi doitchy. I don't know for sure, so I would hate to give you the wrong answer. I guess it depends on how long you have been taking the percs. How long have you been doing that? I do agree with Rose, the suboxone is A LOT stronger than 30mg of Percocet. You probably should have just toughed it out and never taken the suboxone in the first place. I'm really not sure what to tell you. Sorry I'm really no help. Maybe someone else can help you soon. I think most people are out enjoying the weekend right now.

      Oh I see jay responded. We posted at the same time.

        doitchy you would have been better off to ct off the percs. five days is not long enough to become dependent on subs but you need to stop now or reduce to 1 mg for a couple of days then 1/2 mg for a couple of days then stop. Then I would use the Thomas Recipe

        • auburn good to see the trazadone has helped you with your sleep. You have been wondering about what to drop to after .25. If you can measure it you should go to .1875. That would be a .25 piece cut into 2 piles of .125 each then cut one of those in half. That would be a 25% reduction and I know with such small pieces it has to be a pain. Best wishes to you on rest of your taper and will talk to you later.

                  Exactly! The fountain of youth. I just want to go and tell everyone and help them and show them the way. Seriously though. I'm super happy and thinking it'll be a week and I'll make the big move. Yes, a little scared. A little nervous. But I can handle a little discomfort as opposed to what we have all been through to many times before. We still have to pay a price. I've been reading over some threads of ppl jumping and it puts me at ease.

                  I was reading your thread and it just makes me happy. Bc I know you have been through a lot, too. I'm really happy and proud of all of us.

                    Thank you! Yep, those 3 days really were not fun! You really got to be in the mind set that it won't last, and just suck it up and get through it. Seeing that you did it really helps! Thanks so much for the encouragement . I hope it's getting better and better for you.

                    • I definately am! I'm coming down with something I caught from my son, he had a fever all weekend that finally broke today. My good old weak immune system from drugs. But just feels like your average everyday sickness. I think I'm over the worst of it. Still a little breathless if I push myself too hard but my house is clean! Caught up with my mountains of laundry (from the weaning process lol) and pretty much picked up the pieces in my life that I have been slacking on! Feels good!

                      Just add to your list of any supplements some vitamin C supplements and I just learned about this Adrenal support supplement. They say your immune system gets very weak from withdrawal so its very easy to get sick or infections etc. Um its true. 12 days in and I caught something. I used to never get sick. Maybe once a year. So your at .25?!?! Congrats!! Keep going with the 25% drops and it will be even easier! I dropped from .25 to .125 which was 50% and I felt it harder then the jump believe it or not...super super achy joints. It was rough. So just keep with the 25% though you see this tiny bit of medicine and your like there is NO way 25% of that is gonna matter. It does. Trust me lol....learn from my mistakes and just keep at it with the 25% drops and very very soon you will be home free!!!!

                        Auburn since your down to .25 and feeling very little symptoms then I really believe rest of your taper and jump will be the same. If you were going to have any nagging symptoms they would have already started at a higher dose. Cant wait to see you at the finish line soon.

                                I'm sorry you and your son are sick. Is he feeling better today? No fever I hope.

                                I haven't really been taking many supplements through this whole thing. I'm thinking I need to maybe get ready and stock up for when I start skipping days. So your energy is coming back? I haven't really felt the fatigue/lack of motivation yet. I need to go look and see what all there is to take. Taurine, right?

                                It's funny your post is like it read my mind. I am at .25 (2nd day) and I have been thinking of just going off at this amount. Not even going down to .125. You're right. It's such a tiny tiny bit I can't believe it matters. Still not sure what I will do yet. I may just "test the waters" and see what happens.

                                Oh, and hey, thanks, Alex and Kat. I'm on my 2nd day at .25. So far so good. I would think if I was to have a problem with it, it would be today or tomorrow. I'm feeling good and plan to exercise today. (btw, the sweating is bad when exercising. I get DRENCHED.) I've been sleeping great, but that's bc of the trazadone. I'm a little curious what would happen if I didn't take it.
