How Suboxone® Works
Suboxone® is a safer, more effective alternative to Methadone. Suboxone® is used to completely eliminate cravings associated with typical opiate addiction (heroin, pain pills, etc.) There are many similar medications used including Bunavail and Zubsolv. Suboxone® accomplishes all the same goals of Methadone without any of the harmful side effects and is an FDA approved medication administered in the form of sublingual (under the tongue) film.
Buprenorphine, which makes up the Suboxone® drug, is a partial-antagonist and has only limited opioid effects. Buprenorphine is similar to full antagonists such as morphine or heroin, which displaces existing opioids and prevents other from attaching to chemical receptors in the brain.
