What Is Suboxone?

Like methadone, Suboxone is a powerful player in the fight against addiction, but it doesn’t come without risks. Suboxone, and its sister drug Subutex, are the good guys in the fight against drug addiction. Physicians use these prescription narcotics to treat dependence on opiates such as oxycodone, codeine and heroin. Like any narcotic, however, there is a risk of misuse.

Intended effects of Suboxone

Suboxone combines two separate medications: buprenorphine and naloxone, together to create a cocktail drug that helps manage the extreme withdrawal symptoms of opiate detoxification.
  • Buprenorphine: Works to recreate the physical effects of an opiate, while easing an addict away from dependence.
  • Naloxone: A safety measure to prevent abuse of this drug. If taken sublingually, under the tongue, it has no effect. When injected directly into a vein, however, Noloxone blocks the buprenorphine — leaving the individual with the full painful effect of the withdrawal.
These two drugs have similar purposes, but they are different. Clinics and treatment centers must distribute methadone, but Suboxone is a prescription drug available for the treatment of opiate dependence under the Drug Abuse Treatment Act of 2000.

When taking Suboxone, it is important to avoid alcohol. The combination of the two can lead to serious side effects or even death. Buprenorphine provides the same euphoric effect as heroin or oxycodone, and offers the same risk of addiction as these street drugs. Doctors use Suboxone as a substitution for the opiate because weaning a patient off it is easier to control. It is important to continue taking this drug as prescribed and avoid the use of any street drugs. Stopping Suboxone too quickly can also lead to withdrawal.
