Opiate Addiction – Suboxone, Methadone, Oxycodone, Morphine & Hydrocodone
Opiate addiction is a dangerous condition that often precipitates a medical detox. Suboxone is the brand name for buprenorphine and naloxone, used to treat addiction to strong synthetic opiates hydromorphone, dilaudid and common opiates such as heroin and morphine. Suboxone helps to wean you from opiates by offering a long half-life and a chemical combination that minimizes the ability to get “high” using Suboxone.
Deciding to Quit Suboxone – How to quit taking highly addictive synthetic opiates such as Suboxone.
One method of quitting buprenorphine is called the Waismann method. I can not speak to it’s effectiveness or safety. I thought it was worth passing on. I have no relationship with the company. The Waismann Method of rapid detox offers a safe, compassionate Suboxone detox that doesn’t rely on opiate replacement therapy. Patients in our renowned program first undergo an exhaustive batch of diagnostic medical tests. Special intravenous medications are then used to cleanse the opiates from patients’ opiate receptors. This occurs in a hospital while patients sleep lightly under deep sedation for a short time. They awake unaware of the accelerated withdrawal symptoms that occurred while they were under. We have been successfully treating opiate addiction for over a decade in the U.S., using a scientific and humane approach. The accelerated procedure eliminates the physical drug addiction within days as compared to other detox programs which can require a stay of 30 to 90 days. Full article on the Waismann Method
What happens if you quit taking Suboxone cold-turkey
After finding your stabilization dosage, you can maintain on the medication indefinitely, and as long as you take your meds each day, never feel withdrawal. If you decide to taper down and get off, you will feel some withdrawal discomfort. The longer the tapering down period, the easier the transition should be, and a 30 week taper is often recommended. When you do finally jump off completely though, you will likely feel some withdrawal. See the full article on Recovering Addict Typical Symptoms of Suboxone withdrawal are:
