Dependency. Suboxone contains buprenorphine, a partial opioid agonist, which means it has similar effects as an opioid drug but at a lower level. Buprenorphine changes the way the brain and nervous system respond to pain. Buprenorphine also decreases the pleasurable effects of opioids, making misuse of them less appealing. Suboxone can help reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings, but it can also lead to physical dependence if not taken as prescribed.

Abuse potential. Although Suboxone has a lower potential for abuse compared to full opioid agonists, it can still be abused, particularly when taken in higher doses or in combination with other substances.

Vincent Delcastillo recently filed his injury claim in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, against the drug manufacturers Indivior Inc., Aquestive Therapeutics Inc, Monosol Rx In., and Reckitt Benckiser LLC.

According to Delcastillo, patients and the prescribing doctors were not adequately warned about the dental risks associated with Suboxone oral strips.

Delcastillo became addicted to opioids after being prescribed them for pain management. To tackle the addiction he was prescribed Suboxone oral strips.

Delcastillo was not warned about the risks of serious dental erosion and tooth decay associated with the Suboxone dissolvable film strips.

According to the lawsuit, “The formulation of Suboxone film is designed to be acidic to maximize absorption of the buprenorphine while minimizing absorption of the naloxone. This acidic formulation leads to dental erosion and decay. Defendants knew or should have known that Suboxone film, when used as prescribed and intended, causes harmful damage to the teeth due to the acidity of buprenorphine.” Continue reading
