I would definitely not go cold turkey, unless there is some pressing reason why you need to get off it quickly, then I would wait until your bupe kicks in (that stuff never worked for me, I've used klonopin in the past- but I realize that can cause another dependency problem for you and I know many others have benefitted from bupe). I honestly can't remember if the tabs of oxy are scored, but there's a 10%/ every 3-4 day reduction rule, so you might want to go down to 35mg until you feel comfortable and then another 5 and so on. That's what worked for me, I don't like being uncomfortable. Congrats on going down from 300mg- did you do that out-patient?
take care and good luck- judy
