Suboxone contains buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is an opioid medicine, also known as a narcotic. Naloxone helps block the effects of opioid medication, such as pain relief and feelings of well-being, which can lead to opioid abuse. Suboxone helps treat narcotic (opiate) addiction. You can buy Suboxone online or from a local pharmacy store. Suboxone films contain two drugs: buprenorphine and naloxone. It comes in four different strengths:
Suboxone has the potential to slow or stop your breathing and may become habit-forming. Addiction, overdose, or death may result from the misuse of this medicine, especially in a child or another person taking the medication without a prescription. Suboxone use during pregnancy can result in life-threatening withdrawal symptoms in the newborn. Combining this medication with alcohol or other drugs that cause drowsiness or slow your breathing can lead to fatal side effects.
Do not use Suboxone if you are allergic to buprenorphine or naloxone (Narcan).

If you use Suboxone while pregnant, your baby may become dependent on the drug. After birth, the baby may experience life-threatening withdrawal symptoms. Babies born dependent on opioids may require medical care for several weeks. Before taking Suboxone, consult your doctor if you are breastfeeding.

Use Suboxone as directed by your doctor. Do not use Suboxone in larger amounts or for longer than prescribed. Inform your doctor if you feel an increased urge to use more of this medicine. You can order Suboxone online with a prescription. Before you take a Suboxone sublingual film, drink some water to moisten your mouth. The film dissolves more easily as a result of this. Place one film should on the inside of your right or left cheek. If your doctor has prescribed two films at once, place the second one on the inside of the opposite cheek. Continue to hold the films in place until they have completely dissolved. Do not chew or swallow the film while it is dissolving because the medicine will not work as well. Sublingual Suboxone tablets should be placed under the tongue until they dissolve. If you stop using Suboxone abruptly, you may experience unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Consult with your doctor about how to stop using this medication safely. Never crush or break a Suboxone sublingual tablet to inhale the powder or mix it into a liquid to inject the drug into a vein. This practice has resulted in death.
Suboxone helps reduce withdrawal symptoms when opioid use is reduced or stopped during the induction phase. Suboxone is continued at a stable dose during the maintenance phase for a period ranging from several months to over a year.
On Day 1: The doctor may start on a low Suboxone dose in their office. This dose could be 2 mg buprenorphine/0.5 mg naloxone or 4 mg buprenorphine/1 mg naloxone. On the first day, the maximum total dose is 8 mg buprenorphine / 2 mg naloxone. On day 2: If your withdrawal symptoms do not improve, your doctor will give you the same dose as on day one, plus 2 mg buprenorphine / 0.5 mg naloxone or 4 mg buprenorphine / 1 mg naloxone. Your Suboxone dose may be increased during induction to a maximum of 32 mg buprenorphine / 8 mg naloxone once daily.
An opioid overdose can be deadly, especially in a child or someone who is not using the medication as prescribed. Overdose can cause severe drowsiness, pinpoint pupils, slow breathing, or no breathing at all.
Do not drink alcohol while using Suboxone. If you do not know how this medicine will affect you, do not drive or operate machinery. Dizziness or extreme drowsiness can result in falls, accidents, or serious injuries.
Suboxone can cause your breathing to slow or stop, and death may occur. Someone caring for you should seek emergency medical attention if you have slow breathing with long pauses, blue lips, or difficulty waking up. Serious breathing problems may be more common in older adults, the debilitated, or those suffering from wasting syndrome or chronic breathing disorders.
