I been on it for about the same time and I'm tapering as well doing good I'm on 2mg now for a week and I feel ok from 4mg to 2mg I was on 4mg for about 2 1/2 weeks I'm droping tomorrow to 1mg and doing that for 2 weeks then 1/2 mg for another 2 weeks then 1/2 mg every other day then every 3 days then every week and see what happends so I do think that you can do it with 8 8mg tbs drop it to 2mg wait after 4 days if is to much of a drop then go to 3mg just try MY OPINION ON IT

I think you should have enough to do a taper and the clonidine should help with what ever w/ds you feel im not the rite one to tell you a good taper olan you should pm avisg she seems to be the one to talk to about the schedule i went c/d off 2 mgs and wish i had done some kind of taper good luck

Thank you both, I will try to go to 3mg's today actually since I only have taken 2mg's so far, but the thing is I feel like I crave the sub. Is that at all normal?

You should be ok let me know how it goes for you and I let you know on my drop I witch we could feel the drop right away instead of waiting 4 days to feel anything I'm scared for my drop from 2mg to 1mg but I was afraid when I dropped from 4mg to 2mg and I still went for it instead of doing 3mg

Narcanhelp, No I most definatly don't wanna be on something forever if that was the case I woulda stayed on oxy's ya know?

Lonesome, I may get one more script just incase from my dr. I think he's the kind of dr. that wants to keep me on long term, which thats NOT what I want. Not only have I moved 11hundred miles from home I know no one here and where I moved to and have alot more to occupie my days then I did b4.Good luck I will be on time to time, since I've been on sub I can feel how bad my carpal tunnel is and OUCH!
