Why you Should Keep Suboxone Away From Others
According to the testimony of hundreds of people on Suboxone and the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Suboxone is an extremely effective drug for treating opiate addiction without having to go through withdrawal. Unfortunately, like all psychoactive drugs Suboxone is a very dangerous drug; helpful but dangerous. Most people on Suboxone know that it is a risk to others but there are some effects that are particularly dangerous.
Suboxone Negative Effects
Suboxone has a number of negative effects that may be dangerous if Suboxone is taken without a prescription or a doctor’s care. These negative effects are:
- Severe constipation
- Increased sweating
- Abdominal pain and cramping
Most of these effects are the reason why doctors work very hard to find the correct dosage of Suboxone. In someone it is not prescribed to, any dose of Suboxone can cause these negative effects.
Suboxone and Children
Suboxone is not meant for children. It is extremely toxic and even a normal dose of Suboxone can kill a child. When a child with a low body weight takes Suboxone not only do they suffer from the negative side effects, they also can suffer from:
- Erratic heart rate
- Decreased heart rate
- Inability to talk
- Choking or gurgling sounds emanating from the throat
- Deceased respiration
- Respiratory failure
- Heart failure
Even a small dose of Suboxone can cause coma or death in a small child. It is extremely important to keep it well out of reach. The sublingual film or liquid that is a normal form of Suboxone might be very attractive for children to eat.
Suboxone and other Addicts
Suboxone is attractive to other addicts because many believe that they can get high off it. Never underestimate the desire of others to get high off anything they can get their hands onto. Addicts are capable of taking another person’s drugs among other things. It is important to refrain from telling them where your Suboxone doses are. Many doctors will not give more than a few doses of Suboxone to patients for this reason.
Suboxone as a Resalable Drug
Some people will steal Suboxone doses to sell it. Like methadone, it has a black market value. It is an expensive drug to obtain on the street and it is extremely tempting to make money from the sale of Suboxone.
Due to the resale value, Suboxone has an extremely high rate of theft. Some people will steal it to take it while others will steal it to sell it. Many people will steal it because it is a drug and they think it will get them high. One of the reasons you should keep Suboxone away from others is because they might be tempted to take it.
