Hello Renee:
My advice to you would be to see a doctor. I know that may be a pain in the ass answer, but it's for your own good health. However, you must be in mild to moderate withdrawl before you can start suboxone. I'm sure you know what that feels like, sweats, big pupils, chills, irritibility, etc. etc. Usually a doctor will prescribe 2mg each 1-2 hours until the withdrawl subsides. I'm not suggesting you do this without medical attention, but that is how Tony's doctor did it. If you take it without being in withdrawl, as I'm sure you've read here, you will go into "rapid detox." I am not a doctor, I am not even a nurse, I do not recommend this course of action and I'm sure people on this board will agree. Please see a doctor before doing this.
