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 patients relief from their addiction to heroin, morphine, or prescription painkillers. When used within a medication assisted treatment program and under the supervision of a medical professional, Subutex is an extremely safe and effective treatment option that decreases the symptoms of withdrawal and curbs cravings for additional opioids.

By consulting with a qualified medical professional who will assess your individual needs, you will be able to then determine if Subutex is the appropriate medication for your specific treatment requirements and medical background. Since there are other treatment options available, it is important for patients to be prescribed the medication that works best based on their individual needs.

Can I become addicted to Subutex?

Since Subutex includes buprenorphine as its main active ingredient, there is a risk of becoming addicted due to buprenorphine’s addictive properties. However, the chances of becoming addicted are extremely low, especially when taking Subutex under the supervision of trained medical professionals within a medication assisted treatment program.

Will Subutex show up on a drug screening?

The drug screens that are typically used will not detect the presence of Subutex within a person’s system or cause a positive result, as a specific test is required in order to detect buprenorphine. However, should a patient consume opioids or other substances during treatment, a positive result can take place.

How long will I need to be on Subutex?

The length of time in which a patient will remain on Subutex will vary patient to patient depending on their specific treatment goals and health background. While some patients remain on Subutex long-term, other patients will only be prescribed it for a short period of time. By working closely with your prescribing physician, you will be able to gain a better understanding for how long you could remain taking Subutex.

Does Subutex interact with other drugs or medications?

Since Subutex can negatively interact with other drugs and medications, it is extremely important that patients openly communicate the use of other drugs and medications that they may be taking prior to incorporating Subutex into their treatment plan. Side effects can range from mild to severe depending on the specific medication that is being taken. Because dangerous side effects can take place when recreational drugs and/or alcohol are consumed at the same time as Subutex, patients are advised to refrain from use for the duration of treatment. By speaking with your physician, you will be able to obtain more information on the side effects that may take place depending on the specific medication(s) that you are taking.

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

Should a patient decide that they no longer wish to take Subutex, it is important that they work closely with their physician in order to safely taper off of the medication rather than immediately ceasing use. Many patients begin medication assisted treatment on Subutex and then later transition onto Suboxone for long-term maintenance. The decisions regarding dosages, as well as a possible transition off of Subutex or onto a different medication, will need to be determined by you and your physician.

What is the cost of Subutex treatment?

The treatment provided by Madison Comprehensive Treatment Centers are extremely personalized and designed to provide patients with the highest level of individualized care possible. Because of this, the final cost of care can differ between patients depending on the medication that is prescribed, the therapeutic interventions that are utilized, as well as the method of payment used. By speaking with one of our dedicated intake experts, you will be able to gain a better understanding of the final cost of care at our centers.
