I have been taking subutex since november. i started at 21 a week. now i am down to 9 a week. I started with 3 a day and I would have extras. I take atleast 1 1/2 a day. I did not have enough to take that the last 2 weeks. I think you should feel comfortable with your dosage and it shouldn't be rushed. But can I be feeling worse and having more withdrawl symptoms due to this lower dose. How can I explain that to my dr? I've done so good up until this point. I am scared if I get cut down to fast I will be back where I was before I started this program. Please help!!
