Suboxone is among the most popular safe treatments for opioid withdrawal and recovery. How much is a Suboxone prescription? Many states and insurance programs cover prescription costs, making treatment accessible and affordable.

What Is a Suboxone Prescription?  

Suboxone is a prescription medication used to treat opiate and opioid SUDs. The medication works by blocking opiate receptors in the brain which stops cravings. When opiates and opioids are taken long-term, they alter a person’s brain chemistry. This leads to withdrawal symptoms that can last months or years while the brain recovers. Medication management with prescriptions like Suboxone reduces the risk of relapse and helps people return to daily life immediately.  

Suboxone has been used for the last 20 years to reduce opioid relapse. Designed for long-term use, taking Suboxone allows patients to decrease their dosage slowly over time without relapse. This can help people recover at the rate their mind, body, and lifestyle require. Unlike methadone, patients do not need to visit a clinic daily for their Suboxone prescription.   

How Much Is a Suboxone Prescription? 

How much does Suboxone cost? In short, the expense varies. In many states, patients on Medicaid receive full coverage of Suboxone prescriptions. Other insurance plans may have co-pays like other medications that vary depending on dosage and whether someone takes generic or name-brand medication.

Suboxone comes in multiple strengths and either as a pill or film. Like other medications, a few brand options vary in price. In most cases, patients are prescribed either 2 or 8 milligrams. The cash-pay price of higher doses is more expensive than lower doses. Many patients start at a higher dose and decrease to lower doses over time to prevent withdrawal effects. Also like other medications, pharmacy prices and insurance coverage vary depending on where someone fills their prescription.
