how the new Suboxone sublingual film (buprenorphine/naloxone) compares to the sublingual tablets

People are asking how the new Suboxone sublingual film (buprenorphine/naloxone) compares to the sublingual tablets.

The film tastes better and dissolves faster than the tabs...but it can be hard getting it out of the child-resistant packaging.

The film and tabs come in the same strengths...but they're NOT bioequivalent. The film gives slightly higher drug concentrations so patients MIGHT notice a slight difference.
