Overdose with Suboxone in adults is less common and mostly occurs in adults using alcohol or benzos. There is a ceiling effect in which further increases above 24mg in dosage does not increase the effect on respiratory or cardiovascular function.
Suboxone consists of 2 components. The first component is called Buprenorphine, and the second is called Naloxone. Buprenorphine is an active ingredient and is considered to be a partial opioid agonist.
