In order to explain Rapid Suboxone Detox, first, we would like to explain the Suboxone opiate drug. Suboxone is the brand name for a medication consisting of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is a thebaine derivative with powerful analgesia approximately 20 to 40 times more potent than morphine. Buprenorphine is a partial agonist and antagonist of the opioid receptors in the central nervous system which means that when its molecule binds to a receptor, it will transduce only a partial response in contrast to a full agonist such as morphine. Buprenorphine has such a high affinity to the opioid receptors that the opioid receptor antagonists (e.g. naloxone) only partially reverse its effects. This means that an overdose of buprenorphine cannot be easily reversed. Naloxone is opioid receptor blocker (antagonist). They are combined together to prevent inter-venous abuse of this medication. In the US, Suboxone has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of opiate drug addiction. However many individuals who start using it to treat their addiction, become addicted to the Suboxone itself. Suboxone has a high rate of illicit abuse. It is a List II drug of the Opium Law.
Recreational users of Suboxone who crush the tablet and snort it report a euphoric rush similar to other opiates in addition to a slight “upper”-like effect. Many recreational users also report withdrawal symptoms from using Suboxone. Due to the high potency of tablet forms of buprenorphine, only a small amount of the opiate drug needs be ingested to achieve the desired effects.
Buprenorphine abuse is very common in Scandinavia, especially in Finland and Sweden. In 2007, the authorities in Uppsala county in Sweden confiscated more buprenorphine than cocaine, ecstasy and GHB. In Finland recreational use of buprenorphine is on the rise; in 2005, Finland’s incidence of Subutex abuse (most often IV) surpassed the incidence of recreational usage of amphetamines. Intravenous administration of dissolved Subutex pills and insufflation of pulverized pills are the most common modes of recreational buprenorphine use.
Suboxone Addiction Side Effects
Common adverse opiate drug reactions associated with the use of Suboxone are similar to those of other opiates and include: nausea and vomiting, drowsiness, dizziness, headache, perspiration, itchiness, dry mouth, low blood pressure, male ejaculatory difficulty, decreased libido and urinary retention.
Suboxone Withdrawal Symptoms
If you decide to quit Suboxone or do a Suboxone detoxification without the supervision of a qualified doctor, withdrawal symptoms can be very painful; often worse than other opiate withdrawals. Symptoms will start at 36 hours after stopping the opiate drug and can last up to several weeks. Some of the symptoms include: Anxiety, diarrhea, insomnia, muscle cramping and involuntary leg kicking, chills, fever, stomach pain, depression and suicidal thoughts. The severe withdrawal symptoms from using Suboxone can last four to six weeks. The residual depression, insomnia and weakness may persist for months.

” I recently underwent the rapid detox procedure about a week ago. I was on suboxone and heroin. At the time of the procedure, I had withdrawn from heroin to suboxone to stabilize myself before the procedure. I had been a hard core heroin addict. The suboxone was a way to hold me over from spending too much money on heroin. When I had money, I used heroin. When I ran out, I had to get back on suboxone. The process of getting back on suboxone from heroin in itself is very hard because you do experience withdrawal symptoms for several days, until the suboxone stabilizes your body. I went through this process of switching from heroin to suboxone at least 20 times in the past year. I had some vacation time from work and decided to quit heroin cold turkey, but I couldn’t. When I heard about MDS rapid detox, I decided to go through the procedure. I took suboxone to stop my withdrawal from heroin until the procedure, which was a weeks time. So in essence, I had been taking suboxone for a week before the procedure because 3 weeks before, I strictly was only taking heroin. My procedure was (day 1) and I planned to be back at work by (day 5). This is a pretty optimistic goal. I almost backed out of it, until I thought to myself, “I’m tired of being a junky and I want to stop”. So with all of that in mind, I went through the procedure. The staff was great. The facility was great. It looks like a regular hospital. The building looks like an office building, not a hospital from the outside, which was cool because it reassures confidentiality in a sense. The doctor’s are very experienced, and the staff really takes care of you to make sure you will be fine. You get prepped just like a surgical procedure, the anesthesiologists uses an LMA, which is cool because your throat won’t be sore. Before I knew it, the procedure was done. The day of the procedure you feel out of it because of the anesthesia, but the staff helps you with everything. A healthcare provider goes back with you to your hotel to make sure you are ok. You don’t experience chills, sweats, or any of the hard-core withdrawal symptoms that you all know about. They give you medications to help you sleep through the first day. The second day, you feel a little groggy, and I had restless legs for about 4-8 hours, then it went away. The procedure in essence, compacts about 2 weeks of withdrawal symptoms in thirty minutes during the procedure. The best thing to do after the second and third day is to move around as much as you can. You will be fatigued, but you won’t be suffering. The only things that bug you the most is feeling weak, diarrhea (which can be managed through drinking fluids and meds so it’s not so bad), and just a little jittery, which you can take a medication for that also to control that. By my fourth and fifth day I started getting my strength and energy back. I was able to work on (day 5). You start getting your appetite back back by day 4-5 to where you just want to eat a lot, and drink. After a week I have no cravings for any opiates what so ever. The naltrexone really works well. After you leave, you have your meds for you to take home with you to help with the minor symptoms. Ask for a good amount of sleep medication from the doctor because that is another symptom which is present. Try to allow about a week of recovery time to go through this procedure because after a week, you feel about 95% normal. After 5 days, you feel 75% normal because your leg and arm strength is a little week. But it gets better every 8 hours. Withdrawal cold turkey from suboxone takes about 3-4 weeks physically (trust me, I’ve been through it), but after the procedure, you have to develop a plan to stay clean months down the road. I highly recommend MDS to anybody that has any opiate addiction because why suffer for weeks when you only have to go through mild symptoms for about 1 week? Good luck.”
