How do I know if Subutex is right for me?

Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Subutex is a safe and effective treatment option for individuals who are struggling with an addiction to opioids such as heroin, morphine, and/or other prescription painkillers. When taken as prescribed within a medication assisted treatment program, Subutex is proven to eliminate the physical symptoms of withdrawal while lowering cravings for continued opioid use.

By consulting with your treatment provider, you will be able to determine if Subutex is the appropriate medication based on your individual treatment needs. There are multiple prescriptions available within the treatment offered at New Hampshire Comprehensive Treatment Centers that allow patients to receive the treatment that fits their unique requirements.

Can I become addicted to Subutex?

Buprenorphine is the active ingredient in Subutex and, because buprenorphine has addictive properties, there is a risk for an addiction to develop when taking Subutex. However, when this medication is taken as prescribed under the guidance of a trained medical professional within a licensed treatment facility, the risk for abuse and addiction is extremely low.

Will Subutex show up on a drug screening?

The use of Subutex will not cause a patient to test positive on a drug screen as the presence of buprenorphine requires a specific test. However, should patients attempt to abuse other substances or opioids during the course of treatment, a positive result will occur.

How long will I need to be on Subutex?

The length of time that a patient will remain on Subutex will be determined based on his or her individual needs. By working closely with your physician and medical team, you will be able to determine the length of time in which Subutex will positively benefit you for.

Does Subutex interact with other drugs or medications?

Combining Subutex with other medications, prescriptions, and substances can cause extremely dangerous side effects to take place. Because of this, patients who are prescribed Subutex should first discuss the use of any other substance with their physician prior to incorporating this medication into their daily regimen. Patients who are taking Subutex should refrain from the use of alcohol and recreational drugs. To learn more about the interactions that can take place between Subutex and other medication(s) that you may be taking, please consult with your physician and treatment team.

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

Should a patient wish to cease use of Subutex, he or she should work closely with his or her treatment team in order to properly wean off of the medication. Because symptoms of withdrawal can take place when the use of Subutex suddenly stops, patients who wish to transition onto a different medication or cease use of medications all together must work with their treatment providers in order to do so safely.

What is the cost of Subutex treatment?

The treatment that is provided to patients at New Hampshire Comprehensive Treatment Centers is highly customized to meet the needs and goals of each individual who seeks our assistance. Because of this, the final cost of care will fluctuate between patients.
