What is Suboxone?
Suboxone is the brand-name of a medication called Buprenorphine/Naloxone. It is a medication treatment for opiate addiction that can be prescribed in an office setting. Doctors require specialized training and licensing in order to prescribe it.
Experts consider Suboxone safer than other medications when used for the treatment of an addiction to pain medication as part of a clinical treatment program.
What is the Difference Between Suboxone, Methadone, and Naltrexone?
Suboxone is a treatment for which you can get a prescription if you’re addicted to pain medication. It differs from Methadone because in order to receive Methadone you need to visit a methadone clinic every day.
The third approved medication, Naltrexone, does not work like Suboxone or Methadone. It helps treat an addiction to pain medication by dulling the effect of the pain killers you’re trying to use while on it. Naltrexone can be prescribed by doctors, but the most effective form of this medication is the long-acting injectable form, which is rarely covered by insurance.
