There is the "New" Suboxone that has come out called Zubsolv.

Half life is roughly the same no matter what ROa. If you are addicted an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> a low dose (say, 100mg morphine equivalent PO [by mouth] daily), I believe cold turkey* is the best option. For a higher dose than that, I believe Suboxone is the best option.

Avatar f tn The active ingredients in Suboxone and Subutex is the same (buprenorphine). Subutex is pure buprenorphine where Suboxone includes naloxone which deters using the Suboxone as an IV drug.
