Suboxone Doctor in Miami: Dr. Mitchell’s Clinic

Shortages and Addiction
by Dr. Robert Ben Mitchell, D.O. - 786-262-5750

Pharmacies are running out of buprenorphine - Suboxone and Subutex - critical treatment for those recovering from opioid dependence. Even if you have some, sooner or later, you will likely run out, too. So then what? Go cold turkey? Relapse?

If you’re thinking relapse, think again. It’s not only buprenorphine that’s in short supply, it’s all popular medications. So don’t expect a bunch of oxy or dilaudid to be waiting for you on the street. And if there is any, the price will be sky high. Heroin and fentanyl might be plentiful a bit longer, but, in time, they will also dwindle.

Then what about cold turkey? It’s possible. Maybe. If you’re ready for it mentally, physically and emotionally, and you have enough bup left to ease yourself into it on a slow wean, it might work. But if you’re not, then you might as well ask a baked potato to unbake itself.

Truth is, there are no easy answers right now. But, you need to start thinking about what you’re going to do over the next days, weeks and months. Because when it comes to shortages, ignorance is not bliss.
