Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.Forum.
As you describe suboxone
may be good for you to controle pain , it is not common to all alike. As it is an analgesic
it will give pain relief only,and no anti inflammatory action. As yours is a degenerative change it needs only analgesia.
Arthritic changes contains Inflamation as well. So needs to be treated with anti inflamatory analgesics.
Wishing you a comfertable maintenance.
