How long does it take to withdraw from suboxone?
Asked: 2017-12-20 23:42:47
I’ve been on a med management program for two years, and I think I’m ready to go completely off of my suboxone. Will I have withdrawals, and how long will they last?

Being honest, Suboxone has a way of sticking with you. A lot of people dont start their withdrawals till there couple days post their last dose. This is because it takes so long for levels of the drug to start falling within your body. Once it gets to this point, youll start to feel withdrawal affects.

A a lot of that depends on how long Suboxone stays in your system. If you been using it for a long time, then Suboxone can stay in your system> for days. It builds up, and the long lasting effects are what make it so unique. They can also make it dangerous for someone whos heck bent on abusing the medication. It can be really effective, and can be sent home with addicts who are trying to make it through recovery from opioids. For the most part, people trust addicts to take the Suboxone at home because its really hard to abuse. But, when they do, withdrawals can last for four weeks.

Did you check with your doctor and treatment team first? Sometimes, when people try to stop using maintenance drugs like Suboxone all at once they end up experiencing a relapse. Make sure that your doctor agrees with your decision and consider slowly lowering the dosage until the withdrawals won’t be that bad.

Suboxone is supposed to be a medication that helps you stop using opioids. Its a little bit newer than methadone, but works just as well supposedly. I know that sometimes people will abuse Suboxone just like they do everything else. When youre trying to come off of Suboxone, withdrawals can last up to two weeks I think. This is because the longer acting medication, and it takes a lot longer to get out of your bloodstream. The worst of the withdrawal should be over within a week though.

and withdrawals will start without you really realizing it. Youll be walking along thinking youre fine, and suddenly youll start to feel really nauseous. It can be a vicious cycle. Just talk to a doctor before you quit cold turkey.
