What is Suboxone?

Suboxone is a prescription drug that is used for opioid maintenance when clients have had relapses in the past and/or suffer from chronic pain. Suboxone contains the active ingredients of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is an opioid medicine, often referred to as a narcotic. Naloxone is included to reduce the effects of the opioid medicine, such as pain relief, in efforts to prevent addiction to those “good feelings.”

Nevertheless, Suboxone is used for long term maintenance to help the client be successful in not using other opioids. Suboxone can be addicting; your body will become dependent on Suboxone to feel normal and maintain daily life. Clients have reported the feeling of “trading one addiction for another”.

“I had minimal withdrawals. You don’t need to be scared anymore. It will be okay and you can make it.”

Side Effects of Suboxone

Before taking Suboxone, you should consult your doctor as it can result in negative effects,dependance and even including death. Also ask yourself do you need help with long term maintenance versus abstinence, i.e how many relapses have you had? What do you feel is the root cause of using opioids? Is it Pain? Or is it a dependence to feel normal throughout the day now?  Make the best choice for you.

Call your doctor immediately or call 911 if you are experiencing:

 

  • Short or shallow breathing
