You don't have to wait to switch these medications, because they are the same med, except that Suboxone has Naloxone in it which is there to prevent anyone from shooting up the drug. If a person did this with Suboxone they would go into withdrawal right away and it isn't pretty. That is the only difference in these two drugs, Oh yeah, and the cost. Subutex is cheaper, it is actually the generic of Suboxone. Hope this helps!! NIK
