What is Buprenorphine?

Buprenorphine is a prescription opioid painkilling medication. It is used for around-the-clock management of moderate to severe pain. Buprenorphine is also used in the treatment of opioid addiction.

Suboxone and Subutex

Buprenorphine is an ingredient in Subutex® and Suboxone®, which are two FDA-approved under-the-tongue medications for the treatment of individuals who are addicted to heroin or painkillers.

Buprenorphine and Opioid Addiction Treatment

Buprenorphine isn’t a full opioid, so it is less likely to cause a euphoric “high” feeling than other opioids, such as methadone or heroin. The advantage is that buprenorphine can lessen cravings and withdrawal.

Buprenorphine Overdose

Anyone who uses buprenorphine for more than a few days can develop a physical tolerance, in which they feel like they need to take a higher dose to experience the same effects. Taking higher doses can quickly lead to addiction or an accidental overdose in patients who are using more buprenorphine than is recommended by a doctor.
