Skublu...I don't know if you were referring to me (Hope) in your post but just in case, I'm doing well. I found no difference between the Suboxone and the Zubsolv so I'm sorry your not having luck with it. My plan is still on track...to wean myself off of the Zub by the end of November. I know I'll have to 'pay the piper' once I quit completely; it will be a rough month after that but the way I look at it, it'll be my penance for getting myself in this situation. I just pray it doesn't ruin my Christmas. Good luck to you!!!

Hi , hopeful :) I was wondering how you're doing on the zubsolv? This is my 3rd week and I'm still struggling with the change. I went to the doc yesterday and got a script for suboxone. I haven't filled it yet, but I'm seriously considering it. I have 8 5.7 zubs left , so I'm going to give it at least a few more days.

I agree, the zubsolv is way different for me too. I was down to 2-4mgs of suboxone from 16mgs when put on them in 2008. My ins stopped covering the subs. 3 weeks ago my doc wrote me zubsolv and said to take 1/2 tab bc 1/2 is equivalent to 4mg suboxone. I'm taking 3x that much and still going through mild withdraw. Zubsolv suck and as much as I'm taking it will cost more than subs. I'm going back on subs today!

Not sure I claimed zubsolv was "stronger" than Subutex. You indicate Subutex is "cleaner" because it does not have naloxone in it. I am aware that Subutex doesn't contain naloxone but the "cleaner" part I disagree with. Just sounds like you aren't looking at the medication in the healthiest way but I sure as hell am not judging because who I am to judge? Just simply making an observation and I don't know you so my observation is based off of your words only. At any rate, in terms of bioavailability, 5.7 mg of buprenorphine from zubsolv is roughly equivalent to 8 mg of buprenorphine from suboxone.

Here is one article of hundreds to support the argument:

naabt.org/faq_answers.cfm?ID=79#

I get your definition of "cleaner" but clean to me is being off of opiates (partial opiate agonists and full opiate agonists). I've been on both and haven't used either in awhile. I plan to keep it that way.

Please hang in there.

The zubsolv in theory, should cause your withdrawal symptoms to subside. My advice is to not stay on zubsolv for long at all. Once you start, beginning tapering yourself off gradually for a smoother transition. Just like full opiate agonists, buprenorphine (a partial opiate agonist and active ingredient in zubsolv) can be very habit forming and cause withdrawal symptoms which tend to be a little less severe than withdrawal from full opiate agonists but last a lot longer. The half life of buprenorphine is a lot longer than the half life of full opiate agonists generally. Just be aware that switching to zubsolv is not a "cure". The key to coming off of zubsolv, in my humble opinion is to taper gradually. It worked for me and I am not the strongest person in the world I assure you. Anyway, gotta run. Good Luck to you! By the way, I am certainly not against taking zubsolv or suboxone because it certainly outweighs many risks (need I go there).

I requested my pain management doctor stop all my meds a couple days ago. Against his wanting me to wean off them I insisted an immediate stop & gave him what meds I had remaining. ( I knew I'd relapse if I kept them). I have been on pain meds over 6 years due to injuries sustained in a car accident. ( vertebra breaks & crushed pelvis ) I was taking Exalgo 32mg in the morning & Exalgo 16mg in the evening along with oxycodon 7.5 PRN up to 4x's a day.

I've made the choice to stop the meds. I started seeing a new doctor & been through Several rounds of injections in the past 6 weeks. My pain level is tolerable for the most part & I no longer want to take the meds. I hated the "craving" feeling when I hadn't taken the meds for several hours & the anxiety I experienced when I would have only a few pills left ( always afraid for whatever reason I couldn't get a refill & go through withdraw).

I'm second guessing myself because of the withdraw symptoms. My doc gave me a couple different non narcotic pills & I had taken them 2 days. Withdraw was more than I could handle & called the doctor; he gave me a script for the Zubsolv 7.5. 2's daily. I am waiting for my son to deliver the meds as I type this. Will this medication help with the withdraw symptoms/anxiety? What are the down sides to taking it? How long does withdraw typically last for a long term user of narcotics? Any information, advice, experiences and the like would be appreciated.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I admire those who are off the meds & encourage those who are where I am in the effort to stop. I keep telling myself that there are many types of freedom but all come with a high price. For me, withdraw is the cost for my freedom from opiates. ( hopefully it won't cost my sanity too. This really sucks!!! Lol)

Someone gave me a small white pill with no imprint or slit on either side. Is it possible that this is a 5.7 Zubsolv? Said it came in a blister pack.

I know what that is like. Work makes it a little more nerve wracking because one can easily worry that this process can have a negative impact on one's performance at work. You have the right idea though. GRADUALLY! Thanksgiving seems like a good goal! If at any point it does get hard, just remember that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I can honestly say that I am much happier now that I do not have to worry about taking it every day. Light at the end of the tunnel!!!

Hi Joey...thanks for asking. I'm still taking the full dose every day (1.4 / .36) because work has been incredibly busy and I can't afford to lose any energy right now. I'm hoping this next month will be a little less demanding work-wise so I can start taking half a pill each day. Right now my goal is to ween myself slowly and be completely off of it by Thanksgiving. Fingers crossed :-)

I've been trying zubsolv for a week or two. No, in not feeling the same but have sense read more about it and am going to give it a try for another week. This was an insurance problem. I'm not able to get my insurance to pay until I've given the zubsolv a try. Dissolving the zubsolv seems so easy but it's not for me. It seems to cause more saliva and goes around my mouth and I swallow it. I need to put it in and not let it move until it's dissolved. You can always ask your doc to change it back and pay cash. I found the subtex to be the cheapest. Good luck to all of you. I use this drug for pain not drug dependence problem even though I'm Dependant now. I have found this to be a better alternative to other drugs and my pain is controlled by it. I was on suboxone 8/2 films two x's a day. Now I'm trying zubsolv 5.7/1.4 3 x's a day. I don't know about this but I'm going to give it a try. Here's to hoping...

I'm so happy for you Joey! I'm sure it's an awesome feeling to be COMPLETELY done with Zub! I cannot wait for the day when I can say the same. Tapering slowly is truly the key here. My body tells me, in no uncertain terms, if I'm weening myself too quickly. My ONLY issue is lack of energy. I feel it mentally and physically. But I've never been more determined to accomplish something in my life and soon I will be standing on the top of that very high mountain with you Joey. Everyone on this site is in my thoughts and prayers. And thanks again Joey for all your help :-)

Hopeful,

Switching from suboxone to zubsolv is no big deal. I made the transition from 8/2 suboxone to 5.7/1.4 zubsolv no problem. I wouldn't even say I am an extremely strong willed person if that helps. I am totally off of it now though. I have been off of zubsolv, suboxone etc for about a month now. If that is your goal then that's great! Taper slooooowwly though.

If I were you I would to a pain management clinic. Maybe you have already checked one of these out before but you never mention it and I think they could come up with a great plan for you.

I meant to say 5.7/1.4 zub is equivalent to a 8/2 sub in terms of bioavailability. Sorry for the confusion!!! Good Luck!!!!!!

Hope,

I also wanted to mention that, as you know, zubs can be tricky to measure which is why my doc switched me back over to subs because the Buprenorphine doses are in whole numbers if you use the generic tablets ( I think i said capsules in the previous message but I meant tablets). As far as the rate/frequency of tapering, go SLOW! Try going down 1/2 a mg per week (on Saturday) so it gives you two days to adjust before work on Monday. This is what I did anyway. They say that a 5.7/1.4 sub is equivalent to a 8/2 sub in terms of bioavailability which I am sure you knew that already. Anyway, just wanted to throw that out there as well.

- Joey
