Suboxone Q & A

Why do I need Suboxone?   

Your doctor may prescribe Suboxone® if you’re abusing or are addicted to opiate pain medication. Suboxone might be right for you if:

  • You’re taking more than your recommended dose of painkiller medications
  • Your opioid addiction impacts your work or personal relationships
  • You’re taking opioid medications that weren’t prescribed to you
  • You can’t perform work or daily tasks without narcotics

Suboxone is also beneficial if you’re at risk of serious health complications, like organ damage, because of your narcotic addiction. 

What does Suboxone do?

In general, Suboxone eases your pain but prevents that “high” feeling opioids often provide. Suboxone contains both buprenorphine and naloxone drugs. 

Buprenorphine is a type of opioid medication that continues to provide relief if you suffer from acute or chronic pain. Naloxone is responsible for blocking the euphoric effects of opioid medications, which can prevent or minimize opioid abuse. 

Your dedicated mental health provider at Revived Soul Medical P.C. may recommend Suboxone as part of your overall substance abuse treatment plan, which may also include psychotherapy and lifestyle modifications. With a dedication to your substance abuse treatment plan, Suboxone helps resolve opioid dependence so the drug doesn’t take over your life another day. 

How often do I take Suboxone?

It just depends on your specific diagnosis and dependency. Suboxone comes in a sublingual tablet or film that you place under your tongue. It gradually dissolves and absorbs into your bloodstream. 

Your mental health practitioner at Revived Soul Medical P.C. will likely start you with more frequent doses of Suboxone throughout the day, then gradually taper down your dosage. The goal is to get you to the point where you no longer need opioids or Suboxone. 

To ensure you’re progressing healthfully, your provider has you check in to Revived Soul Medical P.C. for counseling or psychotherapy sessions as needed. They’ll change your dosage throughout the course of your treatment plan.
