Customer Question

I do not take the medication. The child lives with my mother. My niece and her husband also live there, and they take the medication. He has been sleeping for 2 days. No fever, no diahrea, or anything. That is why I asked about possible injection of soboxon.
Would it make him sleep like that? If not, what could?

This is Dr. David

are you asking about Suboxone? this is a strip medication, not an injection used for opioid dependence.

if the child has been sleeping for 2 days, he needs to be brought to the ER right away for evaluation by a doctor at the ER.

a child should not be sleeping for 2 days straight.

they should be seen by a doctor.

do you have a hospital close to you?
