Suboxone is a medication containing buprenorphine and naloxone combined in a single tablet. Buprenorphine-which has been used successfully to treat heroin addiction-works by acting on the brain’s opiate receptors to relieve withdrawal and cravings without prompting the same intense high or dangerous side effects as other opioids. When combined with naloxone, buprenorphine’s abuse potential is limited because people who inject it experience severe withdrawal symptoms. However, when Suboxone is taken orally, as prescribed, these adverse effects do not occur.
