Government & Suboxone

Can government addiction science be 100% trusted? Is it possible that vested interest groups, like pharmaceutical companies exert some influence over studies and science and important evidence based recommendations. I would hope not, but you only have to look at the USDA and wonder if big business can influence nutritional recommendations (low fat with lots of sugar and lean meat anyone…) why could they not influence publish health recommendations (Suboxone really is better…actually you’d better stay on it for a really long time…actually maybe you should never stop taking those expensive pills…)

Yerachmiel Donowitz Says...

Your distrust of the government is well appreciated. When it comes to Suboxone, if anything the government does not seem to support its use. It is a poor step child to Methadone. There are many Methadone clinics around which are basically government funded. For a doctor to be authorized to prescribe Suboxone they have to jump through hoops. Once authorized, there is a government imposed cap on how many patients can be prescribed Suboxone. If you really want to know about Suboxone ask those who use it. Yes, it is not simple to come off it, but it is a world of difference from the pain pills and the lifestyle issues that are part of that package deal.
