  5. is suboxone an opiate or opioid

Asked: 2020-01-12 17:42:55

I'm getting confused whether suboxone is an opiate or opioid. Which one is suboxone classified under?


Answered: 2020-01-13 20:07:19

Suboxone falls under the opioid category because it does contain some synthetic ingredients and isn't derived naturally from the opium poppy. Heroin and morphine are opiates because they are derived directly from opium. I hope that helps you!

Suboxone is an opioid. That's because it is not derived naturally from the opium poppy but rather it includes synthtic ingredients. A general rule of thumb is that all opiates are opioids, but not vice versa. There are opioids such as suboxone that are not opiates. Even so, subxone can be used to treat addiction to opiates and opioids.

I'm no medical expert but I'm going to go ahead and say that suboxone is classified as an opioid because it isn't entirely natural. You can always double check with your doctor.

I've been doing a research project on suboxone so I'm confident it's classified as an opioid. It isn't derived directly from the opium poppy so it can't be an opiate.

Why does it matter what suboxone is? It's a dangerous drug just like all the rest of them in the world.
