I have been on Subutex for a year. My Doctor has retired, abruptly. I cannot find another physician willing to prescribe me Subutex (24 mg. daily) instead of Suboxone. I travel a lot w/ work. I would be grateful if anyone could tell me ANY Doctor anywhere on the East Coast that prescribes Subutex. Suboxone breaks me out in horrible itchy rashes and welts, makes breathing a little difficult and gives me blinding headaches- within ten to fifteen minutes of taking it. I am serious about recovery. Can someone help?! If you wish to email me you may

know the feeling your all goin thru, I was taking subutex from a psychiatrist and then moved with work and it was like oh my god, now im treated like a drug addict, not that I have anything against them and have been an addict all of my life, its the medical people that lack the respect. Finally got a script and went to a wallgreens, and the head pharmacist subutex police lady was there, and flat out said "im not filling this", I was like why? total disrespect and I will NEVER shop at any walgreens again, not that it matters, but f her and them. Only reason I wanted subutex was, one less chemical in my body, you know....Its all b.s.....

Desperate Says:
 
Yeah, Valley is expensive. What is crazy is that I know one person who is going and the office she goes to takes Medicaid. But, my boyfriend got an appointment and it is at a different office and they do NOT accept it. This is for Suboxone, of course. We are still looking for a Subutex doc, even if we have to drive 5 hours. We are to that point....and thinking about getting prego. LOL. Just kidding, but close to that desperate. And everyone we know that gets Subutex doesnt want to tell us where they are going. It sucks and this is ridiculous. Its funny cause they think we want Subutex because we dont want the blocker, but the truth is, we dont use any opiates anyways.

Did you have any luck? We are literally in the same boat. I just stopped going to Valley due to the financial side of it... I am desperate and have been super ill the past several days. Can you get back to me please. You are a Godsend. Thanks- StephM

by the way, every doctor that can perscribe suboxen can perscribe subutex as well. its a matter of telling them the reason why u cant take suboxen.

DESPERATE FOR PA DOC Says:
 
Do you have to show medical records that you have been on subutex for an extended period of time? I am so desperate for a doc in PA.... I just moved to WV from NC and cannot find a Subutex doc anywhere! I've been on 3 waiting lists in the passed year but by the time I finally get in, they have started putting everyone on Suboxone instead. They will NOT tell me if they even do Subutex on the phone, so my only option is to get on the list, wait the few months, and then drive 2 hrs or so to PA just to be told they are no longer prescribing Subutex to new patients. I DO have an ALLERGY to Suboxone, so I have to get SUBUTEX. So, I'm forced to search off the street. I need at least one per day, so I'm spending over 1000 per month and I cannot afford it. PLEASE HELP! I NEED PA DOC. I'm also close to OH, MD, KY, and VA. I'm willing to drive wherever I need to. Its gotta be cheaper than what I'm doing now.

I know it sucks, but its not gonna get much cheaper than that, now the issue is how can you get the money to pay for it. Its hard I know, but you can do it..... its like a smoker that is killing himself and easily spends 300 per month on cigarettes, well consider this as you are saving your life for less...

Vivify medicine, its on fornance st
Hes pretty cool, if you can prove you have been on it consistently, he will charge like 175 first visit, otherwise its like 200 then like 200 per month.

Hi Star45...i am not sure if you are seeing a new doctor for suboxone or subutex but i guess it doesn't much matter. the 350 you are being charged for your first visit is totally the norm. my first visit with my doctor in PA was $375 if my memory serves me correctly, this was October 2010. after that first visit, it's generally $25 per week, ie I go every 3 weeks and pay $75. it sure as hell does get old and sometimes i feel like shaking my doc and saying come on dude it's been almost 4 years, please stop taking my money...i've seen him so much i now use him as my primary care doctor cause he's a great doc, even if he is a moneybag Ho. if you are currently taking a certain dose, then that is the dose you should be able to continue to have prescribed to you with the new doc. if this is what you are used to and this is what works for you, it would be negligent and possibly dangerous for your doctor to cut that dosage just because she doesn't agree with it. I am an indefinite suboxone person and I am not ashamed to say so. yes it's a pain in the a** and i really HATE it at times but thinking back to what i was doing prior to 9/30/10 sends me back to the reality of what life would be like to go back on that route again...honestly with how so much has changed since my opiate addiction days, i don't even know how i would get any and i'm sure i couldn't afford to buy enough to satisfy my addiction. I was doing great with the original suboxone orange octagon shaped tablets and since they are no longer made, i have struggled with the film, it's just not the same as far as i am concerned. i could easily get by with one tab a day, maybe 2 once in a while, but with the film i am back to 2 a day every day. it is what it is. my addiction is always just an arms length away. Not sure what your current situation is but if you are perhaps unemployed or working part time, if you are making less than 23,500/year at this present day, you can qualify for a one time, one year free suboxone. it's very easy to sign up. i lost my job last year and if i didn't find out about this program it makes me sick to think of where i might be now. on this program they approve 90 strips a month. i asked my doctor to please let me get the full 3 per day (to get the 90) and i told him this is because of the uncertainty of what i will do once i am off the program, i need to stock pile while i am getting them for free. Good luck to you and please be firm with your new doctor on your current dosage. i know if someone were to decide to play God on me and cut my dose, i would be a mess and ready to jump off a bridge.

I have an appointment to see Dr Blanchette, I am in desperate need of a Dr who will listen to my needs and genuinely help me. The Doc I'm seeing tomorrow is charging me 350 for the first visit. That's a lot not to know what is going to happen.

I have an appointment to see This Dr you mentioned. I want to know how good she is. Is she going to rip me down from my current dose? She extremely expensive for the first visit. Which isn't a problem but if she takes all my money and then doesn't help me then I'm screwed. Please tell me what your experience has been with her. I can't live on 1 mg a day. OH NO, that will never work. I'm a long term person. I have tried and tried to come off it and always the same thing I end up going back to something. So for me this is the lesser of two evils. Any info on this Dr would be so helpful.
