Buprenophine is a Class III controlled medication found in various formulations (Suboxone, Zubsolv, Bunavail, Probuphine) prescribed by a doctor to treat opiate addiction. It is designed to ease withdrawal symptoms from heroin, and other opioids including prescription painkillers.
Buprenorphine can be combined with Naloxone, an opioid blocker that buffers the opioid effect on the body. This helps lower the risk of the patient becoming addicted to Buprenorphine. However, it is important to understand that because Buprenorphine found in these formulations is a class III controlled substance, long-term use can lead to withdrawal symptoms and cravings when discontinued. Typical physical symptoms of withdrawal include muscular pain, aching at the bone level, sleep programs, loose bowels and cold flashes.
