Doctor's Advice: The best treatment for Suboxone withdrawal will be contained in the advice one receives from their own prescribing physician. That is because, we cannot know the ins and outs of your particular case here on healthtap. So, the best advice I have is to see a dr if you don't already have one. If you do have one, discuss tapering off Suboxone in a systematic fashion. Doing it alone leads to relapse.

Yes: Under physician supervision, you can be weaned off Suboxone without withdrawal symptoms. If you develop some withdrawal symptoms, your doctor can give you some medications like Clonidine to help you with those symptoms.
