How Suboxone® Works:
Suboxone® is an FDA approved medication used in the treatment of opiate addiction. Suboxone® comes in the form of a sublingual film and includes two ingredients, buprenorphine and naloxone in a 4:1 ratio. Buprenorphine is a partial-agonist which only has a limited opioid effect. Buprenorphine competes with the full-agonist opioids (such as morphine and heroin) for the opioid receptor. Buprenorphine has an exceptionally strong binding ability which displaces existing opioids and prevents others from attaching to the receptor.
This is important because treatment can eliminate craving and withdrawal allowing you to think and function normally. Dr. Kozmary will help determine the right course of treatment for you.
