Suboxone is a medication that is used to treat opiate and opioid addictions. It is the combination of two drugs, buprenorphine, and naloxone. It works best when combined with therapy for addiction to opiates. Suboxone is also addictive and needs to be monitored by a physician.
Suboxone can come in the form of a pill or on a sublingual film. The sublingual film is the preferred option and seems to be more effective in delivering the drug in a way that patients don’t feel the effects.
A doctor will prescribe Suboxone as part of a program for the treatment of addiction to opiates. It is effective in reducing cravings for opiates and helps to alleviate withdrawal symptoms. Doctors are required to have a certain qualification to prescribe Suboxone since it is classified as a schedule III drug. Doctors are also limited in the number of people they can treat with Suboxone.
Opiate addiction has been devastating to the lives of many people. Even though they understand the damage that has been done to their lives and the lives of others, leaving opiates behind is extremely difficult. The painful withdrawals and the overwhelming cravings prevent many people from discontinuing opiate use.
Medications that help eliminate the cravings and withdrawal symptoms combined with behavioral therapy and recovery support have helped many people move out of their opiate addiction.
Suboxone was approved by the FDA in 2002. One of the ingredients of Suboxone, buprenorphine was introduced in 1978 as a method of treating opiate addiction. It has been studied in-depth since its introduction. Trials have shown that buprenorphine is effective in:
• Alleviating withdrawals from opiates
• Reducing cravings
• Blocking the effects of other opiates
• Reducing illicit drug use
• Helping people remain in treatment programs
Addictions counseling was included in these studies to help determine its effectiveness.
Suboxone has also shown some benefits in helping with depression and anxiety. People who have started taking Suboxone have found a renewed interest in hobbies and activities that they had lost due to the addiction. The brain receptors that are affected by opiates and that are impacted by Suboxone are the same receptors that affect anxiety. the blocking of these receptors has been shown to reduce anxiety.
Suboxone is considered to have a “ceiling effect”. This means that if you have taken more Suboxone than you are supposed to, you will not get the feeling of being high or of having the opiate effect. This is an advantage of other drugs, like methadone.
Suboxone has become very popular for treating opiate addictions because it can be done from your own home. It can be prescribed by a doctor and doesn’t require that you visit a special clinic every day to get your medication.
Opiate withdrawals are something that no one wants to go through more than once. Knowing how successful a treatment is can help you make the decision about which is best for you.
It has about a 50% success rate. While methadone has a higher success rate at keeping people from abusing opiates and opioids, Suboxone fits into many people’s lifestyles better than methadone. A key factor in being successful with Suboxone is being part of a complete treatment program. People who take Suboxone have shown that they are more willing to stay in the recovery program longer and this adds to greater success.
