I am currently on subutex. My fiance was just put on suboxone yesterday. I was just wandering what the difference in the two of these are, or is there even a difference. I do know suboxone has narcan in it and subutex does not is there any other differences. We are both desperate to change and to better our lives in every aspect. Thank you for taking the time to read this and answer our concerns.
amos27,hi my name is subzero,and im on suboxone.u asked if there is a diffrence between subutex and soboxone. they are the same drug("bu-pra-nor-fein") except suboxone has naloxone a partial agonist.it stops the body from converting its painkiller to morphine and puts you into withdrew when too much of it interacts with an opiate or an opioid. i know it sounds confusing and it is.too much suboxone more than32mg/day can put u into withdraw only because of the naloxone.subutex does not,and thats why most doctors prescribe suboxone for addiction and maintenance. but because of subutex has a generic now and is way cheaper it is being prescribed. ps,there is no narcan in suboxone... subzero58... pete
