What’s Suboxone Film?

We’ve surely blogged about the use of Suboxone film when it first hit the market, and we’re glad we did. The popularity of this delivery system is sweeping the Suboxone detox community. Well, maybe it’s not quite a ‘Suboxone detox’ community, but more of a drug detox community.

Just so we’re all on the same page though, you should know that Suboxone is a narcotic medication for the treatment of opioid dependence. It’s available only by prescription, and can only be taken under a physician’s care. It is completely 100% illegal to sell, share, or give away Suboxone. For many years, recovering addicts could use Suboxone and it was in a sublingual pill, which means they had to place the tablet under their tongue and wait 3-5 minutes for it dissolve. The taste wasn’t that great, but the results were incredible.

So, along came ‘film.’ You many have seen this sort of product. The makers of Chloraseptic, the over the counter throat medication, began delivering their product in an easy to use film. You just peel off a thin strip, place it in your mouth and it dissolves almost instantly. It’s the same delivery method used now in Suboxone detox treatments.

According to patient interviewed, here’s what Suboxone Film delivers:

  • Faster to dissolve than SUBOXONE Tablet
  • A favorable taste rating (more than 71% of patients scored the taste as neutral or better)
  • Individually wrapped in compact unit-dose pouches that are child-resistant1d and easy to carry
  • Once-daily dosing (just like SUBOXONE Tablet)
  • Clinically interchangeable with SUBOXONE Tablet, so your doctor can transition you. Your doctor will monitor your progress to ensure your dose of SUBOXONE Film is appropriate.
