Frequently Asked Questions

We can help you transition from Methadone to Suboxone, just as long as you are currently on 40mg or less of Methadone. If you are currently taking more than that, we would need to wait until your dose is less than 40mg to start your treatment. It is dangerous to switch from a high dose of Methadone to Suboxone, because there is too much of a difference in dosages. The side effects can be dangerous. Contact us when you are ready to make the switch!
Opioid withdrawal symptoms are uncomfortable, but there are opioid withdrawal treatments your medical provider can prescribe to help relieve these symptoms. Clonidine helps reduce anxiety, irritability, muscle aches, sweating, and runny nose, and hydroxyzine (Atarax) can also help with anxiety and insomnia. Tizanidine (Zanaflex) helps reduce muscle spasms. Ondansetron (Zofran) relieves symptoms of nausea and vomiting. Loperamide (Imodium) helps relieve diarrhea. Bentyl helps relieve gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms, especially abdominal cramping. And lastly, once you start the induction and stabilization phase with buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone), you will experience significant reduction and relief from withdrawal symptoms.
