Suboxone Q & A

What is Suboxone?

Suboxone is a prescription medication FDA-approved for treating OUD. It’s a sublingual film that dissolves in the mouth and contains the following:


Buprenorphine is an opioid partial agonist with similar effects on the brain as an opioid, but the effects are weaker. For OUD, buprenorphine reduces drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms.


Naloxone is an opioid agonist that binds to opioid receptors in the brain, blocking or reversing the effects of opioids. In Suboxone, naloxone is an inactive ingredient. It only gets activated when you misuse Suboxone or take other opioids.  


Suboxone is part of MAT for OUD. It’s combined with behavioral therapy to help you overcome your opioid addiction. 

Am I a candidate for Suboxone?

The team at Abacep Testosterone and Weight Loss Clinic determines if you’re a candidate for Suboxone after a consultation. They conduct consultations by phone or video call to maintain privacy and confidentiality. 


If you have OUD and are ready to stop taking opioids, the team may consider you a candidate for Suboxone. You must stop taking all opioids 24 hours before starting Suboxone. If you have opioids in your body when taking Suboxone, you go right into withdrawal. 

What happens during treatment with Suboxone?

The team at Abacep Testosterone and Weight Loss Clinic includes experienced, addiction-medicine-trained Suboxone medical providers who truly care. They ask detailed questions about your health issues and goals. 


They review your medical history and talk to you about Suboxone treatment. They answer all of your questions and acknowledge your concerns.


They start you on a low dose of Suboxone and slowly increase until you get to the dose that minimizes drug cravings. You remain on this dose while you participate in therapy. 


Abacep Testosterone and Weight Loss Clinic also offers online support groups.

How long do I need to take Suboxone?

How long you need to take Suboxone varies. You can continue on the medication for as long as necessary. If you and the team at Abacep Testosterone and Weight Loss Clinic decide you no longer need Suboxone, they slowly lower your dose until it’s safe for you to discontinue.


Abruptly stopping Suboxone may lead to withdrawal symptoms.
