is this possible or is it all mental? I know someone who is on suboxone but prefers the subutex (white ones). He says that when he stops using them even suboxone doesn't help and that he feels sick. Is it in his head?

The main narcotic in both of them is the same, it's Buprenorphine. The only difference is that Suboxone also contains Naloxone.

Learn more Suboxone details here.

So, it really doesn't make sense, but there's no way to be sure how any given medication is going to affect any given person that takes it.

This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Is there anything else I can help with?

sorry, didn't actually read post, just headline, for some reason subutex gives a little buzz when you take 4 or 5 8mg, like pain meds, but do that with suboxone and nothing...

All mental my friend... I'm on subutex... my bf is on Suboxone...when he runs out he takes mine without a hitch... apparently the subutex is PREFERRED as opposed to NEEDED. I'm not arguing either cause the subutex is way different and helps people much better and longer although the doctors still claim that taking a regular Suboxone under the tongue is the EXACT same thing as a subutex it's the narcan that doesn't get absorbed... I think that's a crock of crap..but there's sooooo many other conflicting"truths" from the doctors' facts that it could make your head spin... the answer to your question is basically he's/she's full of crap... but I agree with his/her tastes... They work better
