What Is Suboxone?
Suboxone is a brand-name medication that combines two drugs to treat opioid use disorder or addiction. One of these drugs works to satisfy opioid cravings and ease withdrawal symptoms while also limiting the effects of the opioid. The other works to reverse the effects of opioids, which is why doctors use it to treat opioid overdoses.
The combination of the two medicines together creates Suboxone, which comes as a pill or dissolvable film strip. To administer, the patient places the medication under the tongue or on the cheek and lets it dissolve fully. The dosage prescribed depends on the severity of the patient’s opioid use.
Renascent Rx specializes in the maintenance of prescription medication like Suboxone for the treatment of opioid use disorder so patients always have access to their medication. Renascent Rx is also able to refill psychiatric medications and deliver both medicines to the patient’s chosen location or local pharmacy.
Suboxone for Opioid Use Disorder
Although drug addiction and recovery are long and arduous processes, treatment and long-term recovery are possible. Suboxone is a prescription medicine for opioid use disorder and addiction that is considered part of medication-assisted treatment (MAT.) MAT is the use of medications like Suboxone in conjunction with counseling and behavioral therapies to treat opioid dependency and addiction. Suboxone is used because it has been proven effective in:
- Reducing cravings for opioids
- Preventing withdrawals
- Stopping withdrawal symptoms for at least 24 hours
- Reducing the dependency and use of opioids
- Acting as a chemical shield in the brain to prevent getting high from other opioids
- Decreasing the risk of overdose
Staying on a daily regimen of Suboxone can help patients succeed in their recovery. Renascent Rx aims to help patients with after-treatment assistance to maintain their sobriety by prescribing Suboxone via telemedicine.
