Subutex 2mg sublingual tablets (2012)
Active ingredients: Buprenorphine
Product Name and Form
SUBUTEX 2 mg sublingual tablets.
Qualitative and Quantitative Composition
Buprenorphine hydrochloride equivalent to buprenorphine base: 2 mg.
Buprenorphine is an opioid partial agonist/antagonist which attaches itself to the μ (mu) and κ (kappa) receptors of the brain. Its activity in opioid maintenance treatment is attributed to its slowly reversible link with the μ receptors which, over a prolonged period, minimises the need of illicit opioids for patients with opioid dependence.
