How do I know if Subutex is right for me?

Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of opioid addiction, Subutex provides much-needed relief for those who are abusing these substances. When taken as prescribed, Subutex eliminates cravings for opioids, allowing patients to resume healthy functioning.

There are multiple medications that can be used in the treatment of opioid addiction, so patients should work closely with their treatment providers to determine if Subutex is the right option for them.

Can I become addicted to Subutex?

While Subutex does have addictive properties, when taken as prescribed, the risk of developing an addiction is minimal. Patients who are prescribed Subutex must maintain open communication with their treatment providers so that the effects of the medication can be closely monitored.

Will Subutex show up on a drug screening?

The use of Subutex will not cause a patient to test positive on a general drug screen. A specific test is required in order to detect the presence of buprenorphine (the active ingredient in Subutex) within the system. The use of opioids and other substances, however, will produce a positive result.

How long will I need to be on Subutex?

Although Subutex is safe for long-term use, patients are not required to continue taking it indefinitely. Treatment providers assist patients in determining the length of time that they should remain on the medication.

Does Subutex interact with other drugs or medications?

Subutex 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 incorporating Subutex into their treatment plan. The use of alcohol and/or drugs should be avoided due to the dangerous interactions that can occur.

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

If a patient no longer wants to take Subutex, they should discuss their choice with their treatment provider so that the professional can assist them in gradually tapering off of the medication. Patients who abruptly stop using Subutex place themselves at risk for developing withdrawal symptoms. Once Subutex is no longer in a patient’s system, they may either begin taking a different medication or continue treatment without any medications.

What is the cost of Subutex treatment?

Ohio Comprehensive Treatment Centers develop customized treatment plans for each patient based on their specific needs. Since treatment will vary from one patient to the next, the final cost of care will differ as well. To learn more about Subutex and the cost of care, please contact a member of our intake team today.
