What is Suboxone treatment?

Suboxone is a medicine that makes it easier to break an opioid addiction. It’s especially useful for overcoming barriers to avoiding highly addictive pain medications. Suboxone makes eliminating addictions easier by reducing cravings and withdrawal symptoms. At the first sign of an opioid addiction, see the experts at Complete Rural Medicine for a consultation.

What are the symptoms of an opioid addiction?

If you or a loved one has an opioid addiction, you may notice the following signs and symptoms:

  • Needing more and more of a substance
  • Not being able to stop taking opioids
  • Medical problems
  • Frequent accidents
  • Memory problems
  • Feeling high
  • Poor decision-making
  • Intense urges to take opioids
  • Risky behaviors
  • Work, school, or relationship problems
  • Seizures
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking opioids

Common withdrawal symptoms include shakiness, anxiety, abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. Fortunately, these symptoms may go away with the right treatment plan in place.

Is Suboxone treatment right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for Suboxone treatment, your family medicine provider asks about your:

  • Medical history
  • Current opioid habits
  • Medication regimen
  • Symptoms

They also check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and may order blood tests, urine tests, or other diagnostic tests.

What should I expect during Suboxone treatment?

It’s important to follow your provider’s instructions when undergoing Suboxone treatment, which is a film containing medicines that dissolve inside of your mouth. Your provider discusses how to take the medicine properly and monitors you during your treatment.

You might also receive behavioral health counseling for an addiction and other mental health challenges or make lifestyle changes, such as:

  • Altering your diet
  • Getting more exercise
  • Keeping stress levels low
  • Avoiding tobacco and alcohol

Your Complete Rural Medicine provider follows up with you during Suboxone treatment. They make changes to your regimen when needed to help you achieve success and break addictive habits for good. Complete Rural Medicine also offers telemedicine appointments for added convenience.
