Subutex is strait Buprenorphene while Suboxone is Buprenorphene with the antagonist Naloxone in it. Suboxone is the choice drug as it can't be injected without putting a opiate addic into immediate withdrawls. So subutex isn't used much and up here in Canada you can't even get it only Suboxone is available... Hope that helps...
P.S. The Naloxone is virtually useless when taken orally. It only factors in when taken through I.V. or insuffulation... Dave
