Suboxone is a combination drug comprised of two substances:1,2
Buprenorphine—a partial opioid agonist with a "ceiling effect" that keeps effects from increasing past a certain dose.
Naloxone—an opiate antagonist used to reverse or block the effects of opiates in someone's system.Buprenorphine has been available for many years, but a major shift happened in 2002 when the trade formulations known as Subutex and Suboxone became approved in the US, and began being marketed for the treatment of narcotic addiction.2 Subutex (now discontinued) contained buprenorphine only, while Suboxone contains both buprenorphine and naloxone, also known as Narcan. From this point forward, doctors were permitted to prescribe the substance to individuals that were struggling with opiate addiction.2
