Brief Answer: Buprenorphine or methadone should be good Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query. I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through. Suboxane was buprenorphine plus naloxone. Its a good drug for opioid dependence. However as you say its stollen, you can ask for refill of your medicines. I am not sure what you mean by "taking the old pill"?. Your opoid may not be effective now as you have been on naloxone and its an opioid blocker. Try getting atleast plain buprenorphine or even methadone should be good. Hope I am able to answer your concerns. If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you. If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.
