Advice: I know little (or nothing) but this site seems like it does - I hope it can help you. There are suggestions for withdrawal and lots of facts. http://withdrawal-ease.com/withdrawal-information/commonly-used-opiates/suboxone/ Perhaps you'll find something good - I agree, don't relapse. You don't need to. If you got this far, you can go where you wish. Best!

Other options: Other meds that are used for withdrawal include clonidine, atenolol, bentyl (dicyclomine). These are meds that help with the symptoms if withdrawal like stomach cramping, sweats, heart rate and BP fluctuations. U should try to find a support group too. U may want to see a Psychiatrist too as some medications they prescribe may help also.
