The two are not the same you cant compare the two at all, one is an opiate ,one is an opiate antagonist.

here this will explain it better then i can

Physicians can now treat up to 100 opioid dependent patients with Suboxone—find a doctor now.

Office of National Drug Control Policy, February 2007. These guidelines provide information regarding the proper disposal of unused, unneeded or expired prescription drugs.

SUBOXONE is the first opioid medication approved under DATA 2000 for the treatment of opioid dependence in an office-based setting. SUBOXONE also can be dispensed for take-home use, just as any other medicine for other medical conditions.

The primary active ingredient in SUBOXONE is buprenorphine.

Because buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist, its opioid effects are limited compared with those produced by full opioid agonists, such as oxycodone or heroin. SUBOXONE also contains naloxone, an opioid antagonist

I used tabs to get off oxycotton and I beat the odds. Then I tapered off the tabs taking 3 10mg a day to 1 a day. Don't go cold turkey you will always go back. Also look into alzopram and colonodine.
