Just introducing myself... Want to start a taper!

Postby Mrs.Farley7712 » Fri Jan 05, 2018 1:10 pm

After over 10 years of addiction I finally decided to get into a sub doc, I got in in just a few days. My doc was pain killers at first but once my habit started costing too much I jumped to heroin. After seeing plenty of friends and family od from fent I decided I needed help. I go to my sub doc once a week, they started me on 2 8mg tabs once a day even though I never take my full dose. I want to start a taper any ideas??? I appreciate any and all info

How much sub did you have to take to curb withdrawals? This is important in creating a taper. How did you do your DOC? Is there any way to get the strips? For an addict the pills are dicey. There are many here that will help. I am just reaching out. Others, I’m sure, will ask for more info. To be able to help more.

Mrs Farley...cut those fuckers up and get yourself to 4mgs immediately. As a new sub user, you can get off this shit with very little wds if you do it now!!! THE LONGER YOU TAKE IT, THE HARDER IT GETS....ITS A MENTAL MINDFUCK MORE THAN PHYSICAL. Well shit, didn't mean to scream but its worth it.

taper now...how many days have you taken it?

I agree with Cheeps. Long term sub use is awful. If I were you I’d start tapering immediately.,..
