Suboxone Detox

What is Suboxone?

Suboxone® (Buprenorphine) is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone and it was introduced on the market to reduce opiate abuse. Suboxone Detox might work for some and it can be a life-saving alternative for those leaving under dangerous drug using habits. The issue with this treatment modality is that buprenorphine is a highly addictive opioid, and dependence can quickly become a major issue. Detox and withdrawals could be challenging and lengthy because the drug is a partial opiate, which could cause physical dependence and addiction.

Zubsolv is another drug marketed to patients who need help with opiate addiction withdrawal; it also contains both buprenorphine and naloxone, and is a partial opiate and can result in dependence.

Many people who rely on Buprenorphine-based medications, start using it as a replacement drug or hope to achieve an opiate-free life. However, they often end up substituting one drug addiction for another. Suboxone detox can sometimes cause weeks of muscle pain, insomnia, anxiety and other challenging withdrawal symptoms that can feel nearly impossible to overcome.


Suboxone Detox Options

The ideal situation for a Suboxone detoxification treatment is when it is medically managed, by an expert physician at an inpatient hospital. Suboxone detox, can be potentiality risky and emotionally exhausting, due to the challenging and lengthy withdrawal symptoms.


Many people try to come off Suboxone on their own and end up relapsing because they do not have proper clinical support during the detoxification process. A Suboxone Detox can entail the gradual tapering of the dose over time. Sadly enough, a large number of individuals cannot withstand the distress of this weaning down method and just proceed to relapse to the original opiate. The severity of the withdrawal symptoms may depend on factors such a person metabolism, the length of time they have been on suboxone, their daily dosage, emotional status, as well as any poly-drug addiction concerns.
