That does seem to be a really high dose. What was the reason for raising the dose higher? Was it because of cravings? I really hope they didn’t have you go from 8mgs straight to 24mgs.

I’m not sure what your relationship is with your doctor but contrary to some doctor’s belief it should be a joint effort in order to come up with the best strategy. The patient should have some say especially when dealing with a drug like Suboxone.

If you feel that it’s too high a dose and you could manage with less, than you need to speak with your doctor. If he/she is unwilling to lower than you need to look else ware. I knew someone in a similar situation and what he did was just taper himself and keep the remainder. I’m not recommending this just mentioning.

Let us know more information. There are a lot of people that can help you here. Also I wouldn’t lose hope because you’re at such a high dose. I think if you research you will find tapering from a high dose isn’t what’s hard. It’s when you get down to around 2mgs it gets hard. What I’m saying is you’re really not in any worst situation than someone taking 8mgs that also wants to quit subs.
