How do I know if Subutex is right for me?

Approved for by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Subutex is a safe and effective option for individuals struggling with addictions to opioids. When used within a medication-assisted treatment program under the supervision of a qualified medical professional, Subutex can aid patients in experiencing a reduction in opioid cravings, as well as preventing the symptoms associated with withdrawal from taking place.

Individuals contemplating the use of Subutex within their treatment should first speak with a medical professional in order to decide if Subutex is the appropriate fit based on their individual goals and needs.

Can I become addicted to Subutex?

Subutex includes buprenorphine as its main active ingredient, of which has addictive properties that can lead to tolerance and dependence. However, it is important to note that the risk for addiction to buprenorphine is extremely low when used under the watchful guidance of a medical professional within a medication-assisted treatment program.

Will Subutex show up on a drug screening?

Subutex will not cause an individual to test positive on a drug screen. The urine tests that are commonly used for screening purposes will cause a positive result should an individual consume opioids, but a specific test is required to detect buprenorphine within a person’s system.

How long will I need to be on Subutex?

The length of time in which patients will utilize Subutex for will vary pending their individual needs. While some individuals remain on Subutex long-term, others only take it for a short period of time. By working with your physician and counselor, you will be able to gain a better understanding of the length of time Subutex will benefit you for based on your individualized goals and treatment requirements.

Does Subutex interact with other drugs or medications?

Since Subutex has the potential to interact with other medications, it is important to openly discuss the use of other medications with your physician prior to incorporating Subutex into your treatment plan. Pending the specific medication used, side effects can vary from mild to severe. It is important for patients to refrain from the use of alcohol and recreational drugs while taking Subutex due to the extremely dangerous side effects that can take place.

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

If a patient decides to cease the use of Subutex, it is important to work closely with your prescribing physician in order to safely wean off of the medication to avoid any side effects. It is common for individuals to begin their treatment program on Subutex and later transition to Suboxone for long-term maintenance. By openly communicating your progress and concerns with your treatment team, you will be able to determine the most appropriate route of treatment based on your individual needs.
