Suboxone Proven Twice as Effective as Naltrexone
A Yale University study comparing buprenorphine to naltrexone had to be stopped for ethical reasons after researchers realized just how much better the patients on buprenorphine were faring.
The study, which involved 126 opiate addicted patients emerging from a Malaysian detox and counseling center, gave a percentage of the participants, buprenorphine (Suboxone) a percentage Naltrexone (an opiate antagonist) and a third percentage a placebo.
The patients given Suboxone were twice as likely to avoid relapse as the patient given naltrexone or placebo.
