Suboxone Q&A

What is Suboxone®?

Suboxone, commonly known as buprenorphine, is a medication used to help treat people experiencing opioid use disorder (OUD). Suboxone is safe and FDA-approved to help treat addiction and pairs excellently with other comprehensive treatment options that consider your unique needs.

What are the benefits of Suboxone?

Suboxone has many benefits, some that are shared with other similar drugs and some that are unique to Suboxone. The effects of Suboxone are weaker than stronger partial agonists, like methadone, which helps you reduce opioid dependency. 

Suboxone significantly reduces withdrawal symptoms, has increased safety in the event of an overdose, and has less potential for misuse. Suboxone also helps reduce cravings and mitigates the “opioid effect,” which alters your perception of pain while under the influence of an opioid.

What does my Suboxone treatment include?

Well-rounded and comprehensive opioid treatments with Suboxone also consider your specific goals and unique medical history. The wellness experts at the Katy, Texas, office consider your total health to devise a system that works best for you.


This treatment plan can include custom doses of Suboxone to help reduce cravings and provide additional resources, such as counseling and primary care, to keep you on track. The specialists understand that slip-ups happen and are here to support you in every way to get you back on the road to recovery.

How is Suboxone administered?

Suboxone comes in two major forms for patients to easily ingest the medicine. Suboxone comes in tablet and sublingual forms, and both dissolve inside the mouth. Some people prefer tablets as they feel they are more discreet and accessible. Others may enjoy the sublingual film as it allows greater control to incrementally reduce the medication over time as a part of treatment.

Before taking Suboxone, your wellness provider will review all relevant health information with you to avoid potential complications. You should also notify your provider of any new and existing conditions, including allergies. Common side effects of Suboxone use include nausea, headache, dry mouth, fever, fatigue, and heart palpitations.
