Suboxone is the brand name associated with buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist that blocks the receptors in the brain that responds when opiates are used; this helps to control impulse urges and cravings. Naloxone is used to reverse the effects opioids have had on the body and mind. Together, these two drugs help to reduce withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to stop using opioids altogether.
Suboxone is a trusted medication in medication-assisted treatment programs. Used in conjunction with a strong support team, counseling, regular check-ups, many individuals can stop using opioids over a short time and avoid relapsing.
Suboxone helps to reduce withdrawal feelings including:
- Intense Pain
- Racing Thoughts
- Increase Breathing or Heart Rate
