Can I become addicted to Suboxone?
It is possible to become addicted to suboxone. It is a medication that uses an agonist opioid (buprenorphine) and can cause the user to become dependent on it. However, if it is taken as prescribed by a doctor then it is a safe and effective drug.
How long will I be on Suboxone?
There is no set time period for how long someone stays on suboxone. It is something that will be decided between you and your doctor. Some people take it for long periods, while others will only use it for a short time before being weaned off.
Should I take Suboxone if I am on other medications?
Like any prescribed medication suboxone can cause an interaction with certain drugs. Be sure to tell your doctor what other medication you are on before starting treatment with suboxone. Those who are taking suboxone should not take sleeping pills, narcotic painkillers, sedatives, or drink alcohol.
