Can I cut Suboxone a film or tablet?

Cutting is not an "on-label" practice that is approved by the FDA but is very commonly recommended by prescribers due to the need to customize doses to patient needs.

When it comes to cutting buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone), the Suboxone film can be cut into small pieces. The medication is probably not completely evenly distributed throughout the film or tablet, so it is okay if you are not super-precise when you cut it. And if you end up taking a little bit “more” on one day and a little “less” on another, that’s okay as the levels in the blood will average out over a few days.
