If you’ve heard of the brand Suboxone, a medication used during opioid addiction recovery, including at Coastal Pain Medicine’s addiction clinic, Pompano Beach, then you might have some questions about how it actually works. This article aims to answer these questions.
Suboxone comes in a film form that is supposed to be placed under the tongue or the cheeks during the treatment. The generic name for Suboxone is buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine was developed in the 1970s as the safer opioid than morphine, according to The Ochsner Journal. It works to counter the effects of opioid dependency. Naloxone, on the other hand, prevents the misuse of the medication. These active ingredients are then absorbed in the bloodstream to attach to the brain receptors.
