Suboxone is a medicine for opiate detox which is actually two medicines in one: buprenorphine, a long acting opiate pain medicine with great affinity for the opiod brain receptors, and naloxone which is used in the formula to prevent people from injecting the Suboxone. You have to be off the morphine and in sufficient withdrawals before taking the Suboxone or you will cause precipitated withdrawals. It is best to be under a doctor's care before undertaking this conversion.
To learn more about Suboxone try going to Suboxone.com. You can also call the Suboxone number: 1 877 suboxone and ask them your questions about this medication.
If you will go to the suboxone.com webpage and find all the doctors in your area who are licensed to write an rx for it, and call them, you might find one with a low enough induction fee and office visit fee. Most subs doctors will not file insurance, not sure why, but you will find these fees vary and you may be able to find one that is affordable. You know suboxone is an opiate blocker, if you really do legitimately need opiate pain meds like morphine, you may NOT want to be on subs. Subs sits on the opiate receptors for 3 to 5 days and is designed not to make a person have the euphoria that an opiate would cause you to have. Maybe I answered this??? Pattishan
