Suboxone Administration

Suboxone® (buprenorphine and naloxone) is a prescription medicine used to treat opioid dependence. But how is this medicine administered?
 
Suboxone comes in the form of a sublingual tablet or film, which is placed on the floor of the mouth under the tongue to dissolve. This medicine is normally used just once daily. It is important to not chew, swallow, or suck on the tablets or film, as this will make the drug less effective. Keep the medicine under your tongue until it completely dissolves.
 
The medicine comes in two strengths. Your dosage will depend on several factors, such as other medications you are taking and other medical conditions you may have.
