Is suboxone the same thing as buprenorphine?

Forgive me for asking this question. But this confused me a little bit. I read some questions here stating suboxone this and buprenorphine that. I do not know if both of them are the same which can be interchanged. If anyone who can help me..That will be great. Thanks.

Hi Jc19, Yes, since buprenorphine is the main ingredient of suboxone.

Agree to iamnurse. You might also heard about subutex? I believed this is a sister drug of suboxone which is made of pure buprenorphine.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think suboxone is a combination of naloxone and buprenorphine.
