I am currently at a cross roads right now, I'm trying to get off H and I've been buying Subutex from my friend. I've now decided I'm going to need to start going to an actual doctor and do this right. I don't know whetherI should do suboxone or subutex. Natrually id think subutex since that's what I've been taking. But what are the pro's and cons to both or comparitvely?

Suboxone and Subutex have the same active ingredient, Buprenorphine. Suboxone has an added ingredient, Naloxone, that is supposed to keep people from shooting it.

The truth is, you'll probably have a hard time getting Subutex from a doctor because Reckitt Benckiser, the makers of Suboxone, have convinced our gov't that Suboxone is safer. No worries, though, like I said, Suboxone and Subutex are basically the same thing.
