Correct starting dose or an opiate tolerant patient???

Hi Everyone! My new pain doc prescribed 8mg. Subutex tid...1 every 8 hours...sorry for the "doc talk" , too many of them in the family, it rubs off. Anyway, has anyone who is opiate tolerant tried this as a starting dose? Currently taking Methadone, 10mg., 2 tabs. 4X a day, and immediate release morphine, 30mg. 1 tab 4X daily. Short version, 80mg. Methadone, 120 mg. IR morphine. I don't do the conversion rates that well, so I thought I'd ask here first before miring myself in obnoxious math. Thanks in advance for any help, opinions, advice, etc. Pat in NorCal
