How do I know if Suboxone is right for me?

When taken as prescribed, Suboxone safely eliminates cravings for continued opioid use while providing relief from the discomforts that accompany withdrawal. Use of this medication will not cause cognitive impairment, so patients are able to perform daily activities as usual. There are several medications available to treat opioid addiction, so patients should work closely with their treatment providers to determine if Suboxone is right for them.

Can I become addicted to Suboxone?

Because it contains buprenorphine and naloxone, Suboxone does have addictive properties. However, when this medication is taken as prescribed under the close supervision of a trained medical professional, the risk of developing an addiction is minimal.

Will Suboxone show up on a drug screening?

Suboxone will not cause a patient to test positive on a standard drug screen, as a specific test is required in order to detect the presence of buprenorphine in the system. However, the use of opioids and other substances will produce a positive result.

How long will I need to be on Suboxone?

While Suboxone is safe for both short- and long-term use, patients are not required to take this medication long-term. Patients should work closely with their treatment providers to determine the appropriate length of time to remain on this medication.

Does Suboxone interact with other drugs or medications?

Suboxone can negatively interact with other substances, so patients should notify their treatment providers of any prescriptions or over-the-counter medications that they are taking prior to starting on Suboxone. Because of the dangerous interactions that can occur, patients should avoid using alcohol and/or drugs while taking Suboxone.

What if I no longer wish to take Suboxone? Can I stop or switch to a different medication?

Patients who no longer wish to take Suboxone should work closely with their treatment providers in order to safely taper off of the medication. Patients who abruptly stop using Suboxone put themselves at increased risk for developing withdrawal symptoms. Once a patient has safely stopped using Suboxone, they can either transition to a different medication or continue treatment without any medications.

What is the cost of Suboxone treatment?

Ohio Comprehensive Treatment Centers develop customized treatment plans based on the individual needs of each patient. As treatment varies between patients, so will the final cost of care.
