What is Suboxone?
Suboxone is a treatment for dependence on opiate drugs such as heroin, morphine, codeine, or oxycodone.Suboxone, works to reduce the strong cravings of addiction to opiates while also reducing the discomforts of withdrawal symptoms.Suboxone is the first opioid medication approved for the treatment of opioid dependency and addiction in the privacy of your doctor’s office. In most cases, patients can take Suboxone home, just like any other medication after they have had a thorough health evaluation by a qualified physician
How affective is Suboxone?
Buprenorphine, the primary ingredient in Suboxone, has been studied extensively since 1978 when it was first proposed for the treatment of opioid dependence and addiction. A number of clinical trials have established that Buprenorphine is effective to stop opioid addition and abuse by:
- Stopping the Symptoms of Opioid Withdrawal,
- Stopping the Cravings for Opioids,
- Reducing Elicit Opioid Use,
- Blocking the Effects of Other Opioids,
- Helping Patients to Stay In Treatment.
How long will I stay on Suboxone?
The length of therapy varies with each individual. This is a question you should discuss with the doctor. The purpose of suboxone is to provide a treatment that stops the euphoric effect of opioids that reinforces drug dependency and addiction and at the same time reduces cravings and stops withdrawal symptoms. After finding the correct starting dose of suboxone, the dose can subtly and slowly decreased until the patient is weaned off the medication totally. In the process, the patient feels “normal” and can get on with the normal functions of his or her life. Every patient is unique so the processes may take month to several months. Studies show that those in long-term treatment have a lower relapse rate than those in short-term treatment.
