hi diceman0186, subutex and suboxone are both drugs used for getting off of opiates. i am taking suboxone at this time. it has a pain killer in it called bupranorphine & an opiate antagonist called naloxone. subutex does not have the naloxone in it. i was on morphine sulfate, was marketed under the name (kadian) i could eat or sleep when i was on it. i went into a detox 7 months and have been on suboxone. i can't knock methadone and is value for pain management, its one of the best. for me i was frightened to get back methadone, the withdrawl is worse than the pain you get on it for. unless u have decided to stay on it for good be careful. subutex can be taken with other meds for brake through pain containing opiates, but not suboxone. i had pain problems and an addictions one also. subutex n suboxone are very costly. methadone is the way to go as long u dont abuse it. good luck
