As far as opioids go, Suboxone is among the most detrimental among them. It has a highly obsessive nature, which makes it an ineffective treatment for drug detoxification. Although it could remove the addiction you might have, it gives you another probably more destructive one to deal with.
Suboxone remains in your system for a minimum of 3 weeks. What’s worse is the withdrawal effects may last as long as 6 months. For anyone who has experienced the withdrawal effects of attempting to give up taking any narcotic, several months is a long, long time. And when it comes to actual withdrawal side effects for Suboxone, just look at the laundry list of them that individuals who want to quit have to deal with:
Drowsiness, dizziness, weakness, constipation, headache, nausea, or vomiting, slow, shallow breathing, mental and mood changes, depression, stomach/abdominal pain, dark urine, yellowing eyes and skin, vision changes. Symptoms of an allergic reaction include: rash, itching, swelling, severe dizziness, trouble breathing.
You can understand how awful this is. So why is it that this is one of the more widespread drug detoxification methods used in the US when it doesn’t even work?
But there is however a substitute treatment for drug addiction, one that is far more successful. Non Addictive and a one-time treatment only.
