Suboxone Treatment, Suboxone Addiction Treatment, Suboxone Rehab California Suboxone® (contains naloxone & buprenorphine) is the first opioid-based medication used to treat dependence on opiates such as heroin, oxycodone, morphine, Vicodin® and codeine. Suboxone was introduced on the market to reduce illegal opiate use and to help ease individuals off of opiate addiction with a partial opioid agonist, generating a milder effect.

Nearly 40% of Americans struggle with opiate addiction. While Suboxone is prescribed in order to help individuals stabilize and gradually wean off of opiate dependence, it can be habit-forming and does carry the potential for abuse. Suboxone is designed to dissolve under the tongue for maximum effect. It contains naloxone, an opiod antagonist that counteracts the effects if the tablet is chewed or dissolved and injected. Withdrawal symptoms can occur immediately if Suboxone enters the bloodstream too quickly. Symptoms can also occur at the start of treatment due to it’s milder narcotic potency.

As with most opiates, Suboxone abuse is associated with tolerance, dependence and addiction. The signs and symptoms of Suboxone abuse have no fundamental differences from those that can be found accompanying the abuse or addiction to any other opioid like morphine or heroin, but can also include the following:

• Disobeying the prescription orders as written by the doctor. This might mean taking Suboxone tablets for reasons not prescribed (for sleep, for relaxation, to get high etc) or taking them more frequently than the prescription dictates, causing them to run out sooner than expected. In these events, the patient should consult the prescribing doctor
• Aggressive drug-seeking behavior like doctor-shopping, going from one doctor to another in order to secure more Suboxone.
• Frequent periods of illness and irritability. Opioid dependence and withdrawal can make a person ill for a day or two until they can find more, which restores them to seeming normalcy until they run out again.

Suboxone is a category C narcotic and is not for occasional or recreational use. It can be harmful to an unborn or nursing child. If you are taking Suboxone in order to withdrawal from a more potent form of opiates, it is imperative to follow the doctor’s orders exactly. Failure to do so can result in either continued opiate dependency or withdrawal symptoms. Side effects of Suboxone include headache, sleeping problems, nausea, sweating, stomach pain and/or constipation.

There is a rapidly growing number of cases in which people have described extremely painful withdrawals from Suboxone, both acute and post-acute. Almost all former and current Suboxone patients describe a terrible withdrawal from Suboxone, with the acute phase lasting 4-5 weeks and the post acute phase lasting up to a year. Acute withdrawals are described as massive depression coupled with no physical energy. These former and current patients strongly reccommend that no one enter a long term Opiate Replacement Therapy program using this drug. Long term is described as 6 months or more.

The withdrawal syndrome from Suboxone may begin starting from within 6 hours of discontinuation of use of the drug, this time frame can generally fluctuate with the degree of tolerance and the amount of the last consumed dose.

Symptoms may include:

• sweating
• malaise/anxiety
• depression
• yawning
• tears
• insomnia
• cold sweats
• chills
• severe muscle and bone aches
• nausea/vomiting
• diarrhea
• goose bumps
• cramps
• fever
• coma
• death

Users going "cold turkey" (withdrawal without using counteractive drugs or symptom-reducing), are more likely to experience the negative effects of withdrawal in a more pronounced manner.

How long do I have to wait before taking Suboxone?

If Suboxone is procured legally through a doctor, the prescribing physician will almost always ask that the patient be in mild-to-moderate withdrawal during induction. For short-acting opioids, like heroin and oxycodone, withdrawal takes anywhere from 24-36 hours to kick in. When switching from a longer-acting opioid like methadone, the situation becomes a bit more complicated.

"Why do I have to be in withdrawal to start Suboxone"

If there are high levels of any other opioids in the body, Suboxone will, in a sense, compete with the other opioid molecules, if this happens, precipitated withdrawal may occur, which is extremely unpleasant, and can last a significant period of time.

How is Suboxone taken?

Sublingual tablets are absorbed through veins under the tongue.

The following is a list of ways NOT to take Suboxone:

* Never swallow the tablet — the reason Suboxone is prescribed as a sublingual tablet is because barely any buprenorphine is absorbed orally. Swallowing the tablet will render Suboxone ineffective.
* Never suck on the tablet — for the same reason a patient does not swallow the tablet, the patient does not suck on the tablet.
* Never snort a tablet — although intranasal buprenorphine may work, this method does not work as well as taking the tablet sublingually. Snorting anything is counter-productive to recovery, and only reinforces bad habits. Also, snorting any pill can cause severe damage to the lungs, which most people forget about.
* Never shoot a tablet — in opioid-dependent individuals, shooting a tablet can cause precipitated withdrawal. Most doctors do not like prescribing Subutex because of the fear that people will try to inject them. The naloxone is present in Suboxone as a deterrent. Shooting any pharmaceutical not specifically prepared for injection can cause serious complications, including death.

What are some possible side effects of Suboxone?

The most common reported side effects of Subutex:

* cold or flu-like symptoms
* headaches
* sweating
* sleeping difficulties
* nausea
* mood swings

Can a patient on methadone safely switch to Suboxone?

Because of methadone's long half-life, it is required that the patient being inducted into Suboxone treatment be at least 72 hours without methadone. If Suboxone is taken prematurely it could cause precipitated withdrawal, a very unpleasant experience. It is important that the patient also be down to 20-30 mg of methadone before making the switch to buprenorphine. A switch should not be attempted with anyone taking over 30 mg of methadone. It is probable that the patient will experience discomfort during the first 3-5 days while his or her body becomes accustomed to buprenorphine, though it is typically fairly mild.
