No. However it really makes no difference. The ONLY reason naloxone was added to Suboxone was to prevent people from shooting it. When taken orally it has NO EFFECT ON THE PATIENT.
Most people think the naloxone is the opiate blocker when in fact Buprenorphine (which is in Subutex AND Suboxone) is what actually would block opiates should you use them. It has a half life of 36 hours and will most likely block opiates for up to 70 hours.
