I'm on day 3 of subutex withdrawal and I reduced to half a 0.4 pill and it's a lot easier than methadone
. They cut me down to 2mg of methadone
when I was about 21 and I had no withdrawals reducing to that dose, when I went from 2 to nothing it was hell, worse than heroin. Everyone is different but methadone is one evil drug, usually you use sub to come off methadone, I don't see why any doctor would put you on methadone from sub unless you told them it wasn't strong enough?
