Many people across the United States have chosen to use Suboxone to treat their opiate addiction. Suboxone is a drug that contains a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is said to produce less euphoric effects and may be easier to stop taking. Naloxone is supposed to block the effects of opioids like heroin, morphine, and codeine. If a person injects suboxone, the naloxone will block the effects of buprenorphine and the person will experience the withdrawal symptoms of an opioid addiction.
If it is administered under the tongue as recommened, naloxone will not affect the actions of the buprenophine. Suboxone is used to treat opiate addiction only and will not have the same affects is used to treat other addictions.
Suboxone can still have the same affects on a person that uses other opiates. Suboxone can cause death from overdose just like heroin or morphine, especially if it is injected with a tranquilizer. Suboxone can also cause drug dependence. You can still have the same withdrawal symptoms from suboxone as you do with other opiates.
Just like methadone, suboxone is not the most effective solution to an opiate addiction. Any person on drugs has the potential to be completely drug free and should not have to substitute one drug for another. You do not have to be dependent on a drug for the rest of your life.
