Treatment with SUBOXONE ® film: Understanding the benefits

Treatment with SUBOXONE ® film: Understanding the benefits.

 

I recently attended a Kennebec Valley Overdose Taskforce meeting which was extremely informative and very helpful.

During the meeting a rep from the makers of Suboxone came to tell us about SUBOXONE FILM and give us a demo on how it works…this is latest way they are trying to prevent diversion and abuse of Suboxone.

The film easily dissolves in 2-3 mins compared to 5+ for tablets.  It can’t be crushed and snorted.  Each film is in a very child resistant pouch, which will also make it harder for kids to ingest since the pills come in a bottle that, if opened by a child, could give access to a lot of medication all at once. The film also has a more favorable taste rating among testers.

Eventually the film will replace pills for almost all patients.
