Suboxone Treatment Overview
Suboxone contains a combination of Buprenorphine and Naloxone. Buprenorphine is an opioid medication that produces less euphoric effects than other opioids such as codeine, morphine, and heroin and therefore may be easier to stop taking. Naloxone blocks the effects of opioids and when administered under the tongue does not affect the actions of buprenorphine.
Suboxone is available as 2mg/0.5mg buprenorphine/naloxone tablet, 8mg/2mg buprenorphine/naloxone tablet, and thin-film strips placed under the tongue for easier dissolving.
more common side effects with Suboxone is drowsiness and dizziness but
many people have no or minor side effects when taking this medication.
