Suboxone Film

Suboxone® (buprenorphine and naloxone) is a prescription medication used to treat opioid dependence in adults. The drug comes in the form of sublingual tablets and film. Regardless of the form being used, Suboxone is dissolved in the mouth under the tongue once daily.
Make sure to not chew, swallow, or suck on the tablets or film, as this will reduce effectiveness. Keep them under your tongue until they completely dissolve. When using Suboxone film, do not place more than two films under the tongue at one time. Drink a little water before using the film, as this moistens the mouth and helps the film dissolve easier.
