How do Suboxone tapers work?

Slowly: Tapering off suboxone(a combination of 2 potent medicine in and of themselves) is something that should be done slowly; and under the guidance of an addiction medicine specialist. Tapering too quickly has it's own 'side-effects', and the tendency to relapse grows greatly. Best of luck!
