What is Suboxone?

Healthcare providers commonly use suboxone to treat opioid addiction. It’s a combination medication of buprenorphine and naloxone.

The drug works by reducing cravings for opioids, which helps prevent withdrawal symptoms from occurring.

  • Buprenorphine: An opioid partial agonist; it produces the same effects as opioids but in smaller doses.
  • Naloxone: An opioid antagonist; it blocks the effects of opioid drugs.

You must take Suboxone under a healthcare professional’s supervision. Misuse of the drug can cause serious side effects and complications.

How to Take Suboxone

Healthcare providers typically administer suboxone as a sublingual film or tablet that dissolves under the tongue. They usually prescribe it as a part of comprehensive treatment in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies.

When taking Suboxone, following your doctor’s instructions carefully is essential.

Sublingual films and tablets should be placed under the tongue and allowed to dissolve completely—usually within 10 minutes. Swallowing the film may decrease its effectiveness.

Alternatives to Suboxone

Suboxone isn’t the only drug that can treat opioid addiction. Alternatives to Suboxone include:

Methadone

Methadone is a long-acting opioid agonist. It binds to the same receptors in the brain as other opioids, like heroin and oxycodone. The drug helps reduce withdrawal symptoms and feelings of euphoria. 

Naxeltrone

Naxeltrone is another popular alternative to Suboxone. The drug blocks the effects of opioids on the brain. It helps reduce cravings associated with opioid addiction.

Zubsolv

Zubsolv is another brand name for a drug that combines buprenorphine and naloxone. Unlike Suboxone, this drug is available as a tablet.

You must dissolve the tablet in your mouth within 5 minutes. Some prefer Zubsolv over Suboxone because of its taste and ease of administration. 

Precautions for Suboxone

  • Always take Suboxone under a doctor’s supervision.
  • Never try to adjust your dosage (such as taking too little or too much) on your own.
