I’ve tried methadone and I don’t like it; how do I know Suboxone will work for me?

We can’t be certain that buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) will work for any patient until it is tried, but compared to methadone, buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) is both safer and faster to start

Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) only takes 1-2 days to completely relieve withdrawal symptoms, whereas methadone may take weeks to achieve this same goal and often makes patients feel sleepy or sedated. So, if the reason methadone didn’t work for you is the amount of time it took to work or that it made you feel sleepy or groggy, then you’re very likely to see an improvement with buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone).
