WHAT IS Suboxone ?
Suboxone 8mg is used to treat narcotic (opioid) dependence. Suboxone works by preventing withdrawl symptoms, since the buprenorphine is actually a type of narcotic (opioid) itself. Suboxone should be used as part of a complete narcotic dependence treatment plan.INFORM YOUR DOCTOR OR PHARMACIST of all prescription and over-the-counter medicine that you are taking. ADDITIONAL MONITORING OF YOUR DOSE OR CONDITION may be necessary if you are taking MAO inhibitors (e.g., furazolidone, linezolid, moclobemide, phenelzine, procarbazine, selegiline, isocarboxazid, tranylcypromine), medicines which decrease liver metabolism (inhibitors of cytochrome 3A4 enzymes such as itraconazole, ketoconazole, erythromycin, clarithromycin, ritonavir, indinavir, saquinavir), local anesthetics (e.g., bupivacaine), or sedative medicines (benzodiazepines such as diazepam, lorazepam). Deaths have occurred when buprenorphine/naloxone has been misused, especially when used in combination with benzodiazepines (e.g., diazepam, lorazepam) or other depressants such as alcohol or additional narcotics.
