suboxone vs methadone

What is the difference between suboxone and methadone?
Pamela P Opioids are very potent painkillers which are frequently prescribed by the doctors to patients suffering from unbearable pain. It is partial antagonist to opioids, the reason why it is used during the treatment process. Suboxone is a medicine developed to be used during the treatment process of opioid addictions.It is frequently used during the replacement therapy of opioid/opiates addicts. It is a common question by the users if Suboxone is addictive. The answer is yes, it can be habit forming when its use is prolonged.

Kelly M They are two different medications designed to help with heroin withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Suboxone also contains an opioid blocker that prevents people from misusing it to get high. Methadone has been around for awhile and it is often dispensed at clinics instead of a take home prescription. Suboxone is sort of like a new and improved version of methadone. My daughter is on it now and she is doing great.
Teresa J my husband is on suboxone for his heroin addiction. it is taken daily and blocks the receptors in the brain if heroin is taken. it eases the craving for it as well. my husband immediatley felt better after taking it and has been clean for three months.
HopetrackerA3 While both of these drugs are opioids, methadone treats chronic pain and opioid addiction, while suboxone treats opioid dependence only. Methadone has a higher potential for addiction than suboxone, however both of these drugs are highly addictive and there is a strong potential for misuse
