Suboxone is used to treat opiod dependency.
Opioid dependence—or Opiate dependence, is an addiction to opioids such as prescription painkillers like oxycodone, hydrocodone, or heroin—is a challenging and complicated condition. But it can be treated effectively with medication-assisted treatment.
Suboxone is actually two drugs in one pill or film. The first and only active ingredient, Buprenorphine, is a narcotic analgesic, which was originally released as a regular pain medicine. Buprenorphine in and of itself is a very effective pain medication. The second component is naloxone, which does nothing if the medication is taken as directed. If ground up, injected or snorted or when taken with other opiates, the naloxone component can precipitate withdrawal symptoms etc. It is believed that it also will prevent overdose-related death when taken in large quantity.
