Buprenorphine is an opioid medication. An opioid is sometimes called a narcotic.

Buprenorphine oral (buccal, placed between the gum and cheek) is for around-the-clock treatment of moderate to severe chronic pain that is not controlled by other medicines. This medicine is not for use on an as-needed basis for occasional pain.
