Asked: 2019-09-10 02:08:03

I'm going in for suboxone treatment tomorrow and I'm scared. What dose will I start at? What's normal for suboxone treatment?

Nothing is normal for suboxone treatment - it's horrible.

Trust your doctor - he or she will tell you everything you need to know and get you set up on the dosage that's right for you. That being said, a typical starting dose is around 2mg buprenorphine/.5mg naloxone, but yours may vary. Your doctor will let you know ASAP.

I've heard that suboxone treatments start around 2mg but I've never done it myself so I'm not positive. I'd ask your doctor for confirmation and go from there.

Good luck with your treatment! A normal starting dose is 2mg buprenorphine /.5mg naloxone, as far as I'm concerned. This may have changed since I went in for treatment.

I think 2 or 4mg is a pretty standard dose to start with, but I could be wrong. Your doctor should tell you when you go to start treatment, and then you can know what to expect moving forward. Best wishes to you moving forward - you've got this!
