The generic equivalent of Suboxone sublingual film (buprenorphine/naloxone) is now available. Suboxone is FDA-approved to treat opioid dependence. The generic film is available in the following strengths: 2/0.5mg, 4/1mg, 8/2mg, and 12/3mg.

Suboxone may be an option for those struggling with opioid dependence and should be part of a treatment plan that includes psychosocial support, along with medication-assisted therapy.

Generic prescription drugs approved by the FDA have the same high quality and strength as brand name drugs. Generic prescription drug manufacturing and packaging sites must pass the same quality standards as those of brand name drugs.
