The Only Reliable Way to Monitor Patient Compliance of Suboxone

04/01/2014

Suboxone® is an FDA-approved medication for the treatment of opioid dependence. The primary active ingredient in Suboxone® is buprenorphine. Suboxone® also contains naloxone, an opioid antagonist, which is there to discourage people from dissolving the tablet and injecting it.

When monitoring patient compliance of Suboxone®, buprenorphine testing alone is not sufficient. To ensure your patient is taking Suboxone® and not substituting buprenorphine, you must also test for naloxone. NMS Labs offers testing for both buprenorphine and naloxone together in our Suboxone® test. In addition, we also offer naloxone by itself.
