How do I know if Subutex is right for me?

Subutex is a prescription medication approved for use in opioid addiction treatment programs by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). If you have become dependent on an opioid like prescription painkillers, heroin, or morphine, Subutex is a safe and effective medication that will help you put an end to your dangerous cycle of opioid abuse. When taken as prescribed and in conjunction with a medication assisted treatment program, Subutex can relieve cravings for continued use, as well as prevent the onset of withdrawal symptoms.

To determine if Subutex is the best medication for you and your needs, you must speak with a treatment provider who can review your situation. From there, this provider can help you decide what treatment options fit you best.

Can I become addicted to Subutex?

Yes. Subutex contains buprenorphine, which is an opioid medication that has the ability to cause addictive tendencies when misused. The risk for ending up addicted to buprenorphine is low.

Will Subutex show up on a drug screening?

No. If you are made to take a drug test, your Subutex use will not appear. Most urine tests that are utilized within the mainstream are only designed to pick up more common drugs, such as heroin. More specific tests are required to detect buprenorphine.

How long will I need to be on Subutex?

The period of time that you will remain on Subutex will be dependent on your needs and the conversations you have with your treatment provider and counselor. Some individuals might stay on Subutex for a prolonged period of time, while others might only use it for a short period of time. However, all of this will be based on the individual needs of each patient.

Does Subutex interact with other drugs or medications?

Yes. Combining Subutex with other substances can cause a variety of negative side effects, depending on the type of medication that is being taken. Side effects can vary from mild to severe, however, your treatment provider can offer you more details regarding potential interactions that might happen based on the medications you are consuming. In addition, individuals who are on Subutex should not take recreational drugs or drink alcohol, as dangerous side effects can occur.

Whenever you are preparing to take a new medication, you should always ensure that your treatment provider is aware of the medications you are already on so that he or she can provide you with information needed to avoid any possible side effects or negative interactions that might occur.

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

If you decide to stop taking Subutex, it is imperative that you and your treatment provider work together so you can properly taper off of your medication as opposed to just suddenly stopping use. It is common for patients to start their medication assisted treatment with Subutex and then switch over to Suboxone for long-term maintenance. However, these decisions will be made between you, your treatment provider, and your therapist and will be based on your needs.

What is the cost of Subutex treatment?

The treatment supplied by our team of professionals at Cape Cod Comprehensive Treatment Centers is extremely customized to ensure that each patient obtains an individual experience. Part of this customization includes developing and implementing a treatment plan that will address a patient’s needs. Since our care is this customized, the cost of your care will be, too. To speak with someone about the possible cost of the medication and therapy that will be incorporated into your treatment plan, please contact one of our intake specialists.
