What is Suboxone?
Suboxone (buprenorphine/naloxone) is a brand-name prescription drug used to treat dependence on opioid drugs.
Suboxone comes in an oral form that’s either placed under your tongue (sublingual) or between your gums and cheek (buccal).
It contains two drug components which are buprenorphine and naloxone. Research has shown that Suboxone is effective for reducing opioid misuse. It’s also effective for keeping people with opioid dependence in treatment over 24 weeks.
Suboxone is a controlled substance that has an accepted medical use, but it may cause physical or psychological dependence and may be abused. It is very important to seek the help of licensed medical professionals before commencing usage. Our licensed suboxone doctors in Texas help patients who are struggling with opioid dependence through their recovery process.
may also be used for other medical conditions.
Suboxone is approved by the FDA to treat opioid dependence. Suboxone is a recommended treatment option for opioid dependence. It helps treat opioid dependence by reducing the withdrawal symptoms that can occur when opioid use is stopped or reduced.
Suboxone for withdrawal
Suboxone is sometimes taken to help deal with opioid withdrawal symptoms as part of a detoxification program. It may help reduce severe symptoms of opioid withdrawal.
Because detoxification programs are generally short-term, inpatient treatment plans are used to help people off of drugs, such as opioids, or alcohol. Opioid dependence treatment, on the other hand, is a loose-term approach to reducing dependence on opioids, with most of the treatment being done on an outpatient basis.
Suboxone for pain
Suboxone is sometimes used for treating pain. However, this has not been widely proven because it’s not clear how well, or if, Suboxone works to treat pain. Suboxone may be beneficial for people who have both chronic pain and opioid dependence.
Buprenorphine, one of the drugs contained in Suboxone, is also used for pain. However, studies haven’t confirmed how effective it is for pain alleviation.
Suboxone for depression
Although Suboxone itself is not used for treating depression, buprenorphine, one of the drugs contained in Suboxone, is sometimes used to treat depression and treatment-resistant depression. Some research has shown that buprenorphine may improve moods in people dealing with depression. It can also help people dealing with serious mood swings.
