Suboxone on street: This has to be determined by a proper Suboxone induction in your doctors office for your own safety. Please don't start it on your own at home with street bought suboxone. You could overshoot the dose with disastrous consequences.Good luck in your transition and eventual sobriety.

Please see a doctor: The dose for subotex will be determined by your doctor during the induction. Please don't start it on your own. Please see a doctor asap and discuss your need.
