    Subuxone was approved to treat addiction but it is an opioid (ie narcotic) drug that can and does help with pain. Judging from reports on the web there are a few doctors who are using it for that purpose. Because it is a heavily regulated drug it may be morfe difficult to find a doctor who is willing to use it for treating pain rather than for its approved use.

      Thank you for your information.  I'm a recovering addict that was addicted to pain pills.  I've been on methadone for almost 3 years, and was thinking about going to suboxene because I also have chroans. The methadone was hurting my system. But since I couldnt find out if it would help with the pain, I decided to stay with methadone, but got my dose lowered so it would be easier on my system.
