Zubsolv is a product for the treatment of opioid dependence. Zubsolv has comparable efficacy and safety as well as the same active components as previously approved buprenorphine/ naloxone sublingual formulations. The broad choice of six different strengths offers the potential for finer titration and individualized dosing with potentially fewer tablets compared with existing substitution treatments.

In July 2013, Zubsolv was approved for the maintenance treatment of opioid dependence by the US Food and Drug Administration, FDA, and in August 2015 the product also received approval for induction treatment of the same patient population. In November 2017 the EU-commission approved Zubsolv for treatment of opioid dependence in Europe and in beginning of 2019 it was also approved in Australia.

Zubsolv should be used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan, which includes counseling and psychosocial support. Treatment should be initiated under the direction of certified physicians.
