SUBOXONE Film is a prescription medicine that contains the active ingredients buprenorphine and naloxone. It is used to treat adults who are dependent on (addicted to) opioids (either prescription or illegal).
SUBOXONE Film is indicated for the treatment of opioid dependence and should be used as part of a complete treatment plan to include counseling and psychosocial support.
Treatment should be initiated under the direction of physicians qualified under the Drug Addiction Treatment Act.
Treatment should begin under the supervision of a doctor. In approved patients, treatment may continue at home with follow-up visits to a doctor at reasonable intervals.
SUBOXONE Film is intended for administration under the tongue or inside the cheek and is available in four dosage strengths.
SUBOXONE Film contains buprenorphine and naloxone:
Buprenorphine is the primary active ingredient in SUBOXONE Film. By attaching to the same receptors as other opioids, it can help to suppress withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings
Naloxone is included to help prevent misuse. If you are dependent on a full opioid agonist and attempt to inject SUBOXONE Film, the naloxone is likely to cause withdrawal signs and symptoms
Selected Safety Information:
Do not take SUBOXONE Film if you are allergic to buprenorphine or naloxone as serious negative effects, including anaphylactic shock, have been reported.
