What Is Suboxone?
Suboxone is a narcotic medication used to treat opiate dependence such as Morphine, Fentanyl, Heroin, Oxycodone and other medications. A medically supervised detox with Suboxon can help wean patients from dangerous substances and put them back on track. it can effectively reduce severe withdrawal symptoms associated with opiate abuse including spasms, cramps, agitation, anxiety, nightmares, insomnia, etc. When used improperly, however, it may ultimately cause addiction. That being said, there is no serious risk of overdose for individuals who take this medication in proper amounts, as prescribed by a physician.
