Suboxone Price

Suboxone (buprenorphine/naloxone) is a prescription medicine used for treating addiction to narcotics and opioids. Because of the nature of the drug you cannot obtain them without a valid doctor’s prescription, and it should never be shared with another person. Because many patients have voiced concern about the tablet’s taste and the time it takes to dissolve, it is now available in another form as Suboxone Film.

Both film and tablet have the same purpose and that is to treat opiate addiction. However, the film variant is preferred by many because it dissolves faster compared to the tablet, and its taste is more favorable. Each film is also stored in convenient pouches that you can carry easily. While the drug has undergone several tests, it is essential you inform your doctor prior to getting a prescription if you have any kidney or liver disease, or have an enlarged prostate, gallbladder disease or an underactive thyroid because it may cause problems.

Short-Term Side Effects

SuboxoneShort term side effects may include mild dizziness, tingling, numbness, constipation, difficulty concentrating, drowsiness or other sleep related problems. Note that not all individuals will feel these symptoms and the severity will also vary. Some may experience just one or two mild symptoms and then it disappears after a while, but for others the effects linger longer.

Long-Term Side Effects

Just like other narcotic medicines, shallow breathing may be experienced, and if long term use results in difficulty breathing, this could be fatal, so a doctor has to be contacted immediately. Other serious long term side effects include swelling of the throat, tongue, lips or face as well as problems thinking, slurred speech, blurred vision, and losing coordination.

Interactions

Taking certain drugs and medications can make you feel sleepy or even produce the side effects stated above. Among those medications that can cause adverse interaction are the following.

  • Seizure medication such as primidone, phenytoin, Phenobarbital, oxcarbazepine, fosphenytoin and carbamazepine
  • Sedatives such as triazolam, temazepam, lorazepam, alprazolam, diazepam and others
  • AIDS and HIV medication including saquinavir, nevirapine, indinavir and delavirdine
  • Telaprevir and other hepatitis medications
  • Quinidine and other blood pressure medication
  • Itraconazole, voriconazole, posaconazole and other antifungal medication

How It Works

Opioids work by linking up to the mu receptors, thereby releasing dopamine which produces feelings of pleasure. When the opioids detach from the receptors, those pleasant feelings disappear and the cravings and withdrawal symptoms manifest. It is at this point that the medication can help because its main ingredient, buprenorphine, attaches itself to those opioid receptors and eliminates the cravings and symptoms. Buprenorphine, when taken properly, will keep opioids off the receptors, and because the effect is long lasting, you’ll experience the benefits for an extended period.

Generic Alternatives

Suboxone is available under the generic name of buprenorphine/naloxone.
