WHAT IS SUBOXONE?
Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. Suboxone is used to treat individuals suffering from opioid addiction by reducing withdrawal symptoms and cravings while preventing misuse. When used as directed, the active ingredient buprenorphine attaches to the same receptors as other opioids, helping to reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings. When used as directed, the active ingredient naloxone reduces the pain-relieving and euphoric side effects often experienced from opioid drugs.
