In brief: Treat symptoms
Suboxone withdrawal should always be planned, managed and closely supervised by your treating physician.
Medications are provided to treat the symptoms of withdrawal. Sleep meds, medication for nausea, clonidine, non opioid pain medications. To minimize risk of relapse participating in an intensive out patient treatment program should be considered.

In brief: Suboxone
Assuming u r already on suboxone, the best approach is to discuss a plan with the prescribing doctor so that u can successfully come off.

In brief: 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.
