In fact, the opioid portion of suboxone [buphenorphine] has been shown to have effective pain relief, with little to no respiratory depression and no upper limit on analgesia in the elderly.
So it can be used for pain management.
Some doctors use suboxone the same way.
None of your medications address active RA, which should be treated with some form of anti inflammtory or disease modifying medication.
They are also not particularly indicated in fibromylagia.
I suggest that you , if you have not,
a. see a rheumatologist.
b. work with a pain management specialist if that is not what your doctor is.
In addition, I suggest that you eiscuss sobutex with your doctor, which is actually for pain.
Suboxone itself is not really a pain medication.
