What is the best subutex detox?

Subutex is a prescription medication that is used when detoxing people from opiate addictions. It gives a mild euphoric feeling that assiss people who are addicted to opiates in withdrawing from them completely. When Subex is used properly, it is highly effective in detoxing people from opiates. However, a small number of people begin using Subutex for recreation, and while rare, it can become an addictive substance. This is usually when someone has used it recreationally for a long period of time. When a Subutex addiction develops, then Subex detox and rehab become necessary.

Symptoms of Withdrawal During Subex Detox

When doing a subutex detox, the symptoms of withdrawal can begin as soon as a day and a half after the last dose. Depending on the severity of the addiction, the symptoms of the detox can last a few days to a few weeks. Common symptoms of Subex detox withdrawal include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Restless leg syndrome (temporary)
  • Sweating
  • Muscle cramps
  • Depression
  • Agitation
  • Paranoia
  • Hallucinations

In general, the longer someone was on Subutex, the worse the withdrawal symptoms will be, and the longer they will take to disappear. Compared to other drug detox protocols, the Subutex detox is a relatively painless detox, but it should still be done under medical supervision.

Rapid Subutex Detox

While gradual tapering off of Subutex is the most typical type of Subutex detox, there is also a somewhat controversial, but generally safe, rapid detox that is available. With this type of Subutex detox, the patient will be placed under general anesthesia for a couple of hours while the Subutex is flushed from their system. They go through the withdrawal symptoms while under the anesthesia, and come out of it feeling good, having gone through the worst of it without knowing it. Sometimes, there are lingering withdrawal symptoms, but they are significantly lighter than with traditional Subutex detox methods.

Subutex Detox and Inpatient Treatment

While some patients may be able to do a Subutex detoxification on their own, it is generally considered to be safer for this to be done in an inpatient facility, in case the patient needs medical assistance with the withdrawal. There are certain medications that can eliminate the worst of the withdrawal symptoms, and these are only available in inpatient facilities. If you are addicted to Subutex, inpatient treatment is the most effective, safest method of recovery.
