How do I know if Subutex is right for me?

Subutex, a prescription medication that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is helpful in treating opioid addiction. If you have grown dependent on prescription painkillers or heroin, Subutex is a safe and effective medication to help end your dangerous pattern of substance abuse. When used as prescribed and as a part of a medication assisted treatment program, Subutex can help relieve cravings to use, all while helping curb the onset of withdrawal symptoms.

The only way of knowing if Subutex is the right medication for you is to speak with your provider who can evaluate your individuals needs. He or she can then decide which form of treatment is best for you and those needs, as well as go over specific treatment options with you.

Can I become addicted to Subutex?

Yes. Subutex contains buprenorphine, which is an opioid medication that can be addictive. However, it is said to be unlikely to become addicted to this substance when it is taken under the guidance of a medical professional.

Will Subutex show up on a drug screening?

No. If you are taking Subutex and complete a drug screen, your use will not be detected. However, if you are abusing other opioids like heroin, you will test positive. Only specific drug panels can pick up the presence of buprenorphine, however, they are not commonly used.

How long will I need to be on Subutex?

You will remain on Subutex for as long as you need based on the recommendations of your physician and your counselor. Some people continue to use Subutex for long periods of time, while others only use it for the short-term.

Does Subutex interact with other drugs or medications?

Yes. Combining Subutex with other drugs or medications can cause a variety of negative side effects to develop. Depending on the medication that you are consuming, side effects can range from mild to severe. Your provider will be able to supply you with more detailed information about the possible interactions you might experience based on the medications that you are taking. In addition, those who are taking Subutex should not use recreational drugs or drink alcohol due to dangerous side effects that can develop.

Similar to other prescription medications, you should always make your provider aware of the medications that you are taking so that he or she can provide you with the proper warnings regarding your use of Subutex.

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

If you decide that you no longer want to take Subutex, it is imperative that you work closely with your provider to begin weaning off of this medication as opposed to suddenly stopping your use. It is highly common for patients to start their care on Subutex and then transition over to Suboxone for long-term treatment. Decisions such as these will be made by you, your provider, and with input from your counselor and will be dependent on your needs.

What is the cost of Subutex treatment?

The treatment that is provided at Racine Comprehensive Treatment Center is highly individualized and is created to be a unique experience for each patient who comes to us for care. Because our care is personalized, this means that the cost of care can vary. To find out more about how much you might be paying for your care, please reach out to one of our intake specialists today.
