    Has anyone dealt with abuse of Subotex? My husband was placed on it (even though I was not crazy about the idea) over a year ago and I believe he is abusing it. It is always so difficult to see the signs of opioid addiction but I just don't understand how you can become addicted to this medicine if it doesn't give you a high. Anyone out there that is either going through it or has been through this. Any suggestions??

    Subutex does in a way give you a high, to an addict. It is just as addictive as Methadone or Saboxin.
