The doc tells me I can choose to split my INCREASED Suboxone dose (12mg) into an 8mg in the morning and a 4mg strip later in the day if I want 2. Does it really matter?? I have a LIMITED understanding but I thought with a 36?? hr half-life this really should not matter??

As you didn't require a split methadone dose, I think we can safely assume that you don't have a particularly high metabolism. That said, I think that as you're still at the stage of getting your Suboxone dose right, I would just take it all at once. At least that way you'll know if you will need further increases without the unnecessary split complicating things.

That's good reasoning!!

Sometimes, I wonder why I don't think of these things!! I guess I just think of Methadone and Suboxone as ENTIRELY different when maybe they're actually more similar than I think.

I agree with Sapphire ie. you my as well just take it all at once. Buprenorphine has such a long half-life that I can't think of any reason to split dose.
