I've been on opiates for over 10 years after a bad accident. Had some sobriety from 2005-2009 and the past 3 years have been in a pain management program taking 2- 40mg OxyContin and 3- 5mg oxycodones a day. I've been on the same dose for 2 years so I usually end up running out a week before my refill because the prescribed dose doesn't generally help. Anyways I'm tired of the roller coaster and have read every post on this forum which has gotten me very excited about Suboxone! I have 3 screws in my foot and it hurts every day no matter what. My back also bothers me more than not. I was wondering if anyone could tell me the difference if there is one between subutex and suboxone? Does one work better than the other for pain?

hi! i have been on both, but not for pain issues. was on suboxone when i had insurance, now subutex. i can tell you that the only difference between the two is the naloxone in suboxone, which is not a painkiller. so ironic, your sober years were my worst using years. good luck and keep us posted!
