Suboxone & Pain: Many pain management doctors also specialize in addiction medicine or prescribe suboxone. You're needs may be best served by finding such a doctor in your area. There are lots of options. Gaining control of your perception of pain is one key.
Dr. Byron Law-Yone

Work with your MD: Your md is the best person you should ask. Often the best dose for pain is 2 mg used 4 times a day. This is because of suboxone's unique agonist/antagonist properties and the limited duration of analgesia each dose provides. There are many other non medication strategies that can help you manage pain - meditation, acupuncture, exercise, biofeedback, massage, cognitive behavior therapy.

Similar: Ldn - Naltrexone - is a medicine that blocks the receptors on cells that respond to opiates, like morphine, to decrease or even prevent the response. Suboxone (buprenorphine) is a medicine that blocks the receptors, but has some similar activity to opiates and can cause some pain relief. Both are used in pain management and in weaning folks off of pain medications.
