Brief Answer:
Quarter the dose every 2-3 weeks

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir,

I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but I would recommend that you stop Subonex by decreasing quarter the dose every 2-3 weeks under your doctor’s supervision to avoid the side effects of stopping cold turkey..

I hope you find this helpful. If you don’t have any other clarifications then please close the discussion..
