Detox from Suboxone
Suboxone has proven to be a safe, effective, and successful alternative to methadone for patients who are looking to detox from opioids; however, individuals have developed crippling addictions and find themselves unable to stop taking the drug. In 2002, the FDA originally approved Suboxone to help patients detox from heroin and other opioids, but many have reported that detox from Suboxone was worse than any other detox they had ever experienced. Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches explains the suboxone detox process in depth.
Suboxone Withdrawal Symptoms
Symptoms of Suboxone withdrawal include, but are not limited to:
- Crippling joint and muscle pain
- Severe intestinal distress
- Anxiety and paranoia
- Weakness and restlessness
The prevalence of addiction to Suboxone has been increasing in recent years because it is easily prescribed by doctors. Unlike methadone, which requires patients to go to an actual clinic to receive, doctors prescribe Suboxone to a patient as a means of detoxing from highly addictive painkillers. Patients may easily become addicted to the suboxone medication and this can result in very painful withdrawal symptoms.
Detox to Stop Taking Suboxone
Suboxone addiction is almost always the result of patients searching for an easier way to detox from opiates. They’re lured to the drug by promises of a milder withdrawal period and an easier time during detox. They wind up going through a vicious cycle that started with heroin, made a detour at methadone, and finally stopped at Suboxone. The battle with addiction can be controlled when an individual seeks professional help from a detox treatment center, and it’s important to undergo medically monitored detox with 24-hour supervision.
How Suboxone Detox Works
Suboxone is made up of two powerful narcotics and yields the same withdrawal symptoms as the drugs it’s meant to treat. Patients are given the drug well past their institutional detox period and have a great deal of difficulty abstaining from use.
