SUBOXONE

BUPRENORPHINE HCL/NALOXONE HCL

Suboxone (Buprenorphine / Naloxone) is a combination medicine with two parts that work together to treat opioid dependence. Buprenorphine is an opioid pain reliever (similar to morphine). Naloxone mildly counteracts the pain reliever, so it's added to prevent overuse or abuse of this medication. Source: Iodine
