Get help: Suboxone is a prescription drug. You need to see an addiction specialist who after consultation will decide what you need. It is not your decision.

See below: These medications should only be taken under the supervision of a physician. You should not attempt to self-medicate. Please talk to your doctor. Additionally, light use of narcotics for a relatively short time period does not need to be treated with Suboxone or any other medication.
