Suboxone is a good option for many people who are fighting an opioid addiction. In some cases, however, using Suboxone may not be the safest option. Therefore, it is important to talk to your doctor before deciding if this treatment option is the right one for you.

Buprenorphine is one of the ingredients found in Suboxone. The effects of this drug on unborn babies are unknown. Since Buprenorphine is habit forming, it is possible that the baby could be born dependent upon the drug. As such, it could potentially causes life-threatening withdrawal symptoms in the baby. The baby may also require medical treatment for several weeks after it is born. Since the drug can be passed through breast milk, it should not be used while nursing.
