Properly Caring for and Disposing of Suboxone

Posted .

Always Follow Your Doctor’s Orders When Using Prescription Medications.

When using Suboxone to treat opioid addiction, it is important to properly care for the medication and to dispose of it when it is no longer needed. Not only does proper care help to keep the medication working properly, but it also protects you and others from the possible negative effects of accidental ingestion.

Properly Caring for Suboxone

When using Suboxone, you should keep track of the amount of medicine that is used from each new bottle. In this way, you can ensure it is not being used improperly by someone else without a prescription. You should also store your medication at room temperature and away from moisture and heat. The medication should remain in the foil pouch until it is ready to use and the pouch should be discarded in a place where children and pets cannot access it.
