Suboxone isn't just one drug but a combination of two. Its active ingredients are buprenorphine and naloxone. Together, these Suboxone ingredients help people with opioid use disorder manage withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Suboxone comes in several forms and dosages, including generic white Suboxone pills. It is important to note that you should never purchase counterfeit Suboxone on the street or online. Always consult with your provider to determine the right strength for you, and be certain to obtain Suboxone with a valid prescription from a qualified provider.

Is There a White Suboxone Pill?

While Suboxone pills are typically orange, there are generic versions of the medication that are white. Some people may refer to these generics as white Suboxone pills, although they are not manufactured under the Suboxone brand. These generic pills contain the same 4:1 ratio of buprenorphine to naloxone as brand name Suboxone pills. Instead of orange and hexagonal, generic Suboxone pills are usually white and circular. Below are some of the generic Suboxone pills on the market. Although you may come across images of other generic white Suboxone pills online, many of them have since been discontinued.
