SUBOXONE Film, a prescription medicine indicated for treatment of opioid dependence, should be used as part of a complete treatment plan to include counseling and psychosocial support.
Treatment should begin under the supervision of a doctor. The doctor must be qualified under the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000. In appropriate patients, treatment may continue at home with follow-up visits to a doctor at reasonable intervals.
Medication-assisted treatment with buprenorphine, one of the active ingredients in SUBOXONE Film, may help reduce the craving for opioids. To be sure to get your full dose of medication, take SUBOXONE Film as prescribed and using the proper technique.
Review this video or slide show, and see the Medication Guide that accompanies your prescription for full administration instructions. Call your doctor's office with any questions.
