    Question has anyone ever taken Subutex and if so is it better then suboxone??

    What is Subutex?

    Buprenorphine, sold under the trade name Subutex, is a long-acting opiate primarily used to treat narcotic (opioid) dependence. It is most commonly sold as a pill that dissolves under the tongue. Its main purpose is to prevent withdrawal symptoms from occurring in an individual, by stimulating the opiate receptors in the brain. Subutex has a greater attraction to the opiate receptors than other drugs such as heroin and methadone, which reduces or removes the desire to take such drugs.

    my doc wants to take me off of sub and put me on this. is it any better???

    i never heard of this drug before.
