Buprenorphine is a semisynthetic opioid derivative of thebaine.

New Subutex laws
41 Replies RSS
I went to see my doctor this week and he told me that the fda and the idea had passed a new law for prescribing subutex. As of July 1st 2015 subutex can only be given to pregnant woman or to someone with documentation saying they can't take suboxone. If you don't have that you will be put on suboxone. ## They Are Both the same thing. Better yet stop doing narcotics, get off opiates completely and get a life. Do you focus on school and work as much as you do opiates being controlled By the DEA??? ## Jim, not that it's any of your business, but yes I do focus on my career now that I'm off the opiates and taking subutex. I received my B.S. in molecular biology and am currently completely my 2nd year of medical school. So now that you know a little about me, what about you? ...

orange subutex

You people that are prescribed the subutex that you were asking the chat board questions about, why don't you ask your pharmacist...? Use your brain. If you are not a pregnant or breastfeeding woman as of July 1st 2015 then you will be prescribed suboxone or something else but never just plain buprenorphine. As far as the orange Halfmoon generic subutex, you take them the same way that you would take any other kind of subutex / suboxone; they are sublingual.

new on subutex, day 3 now and side effects quite bad
3 Replies RSS
Hi all, I am on the subutex programme for a tram and codeine addiction that got way outta control. This is day 3 of the programme and things aint goin too well on the side effects front. I am itching like a flea ridden cat when trying to sleep, pharmacist says it will calm down in a few days, I wanted to hear from experienced patients only on this as to whether its true? (very akin to the tramadol itches) Also the main problem is that me and my partner are trying for a baby and I cant climax which is a major problem? pharmacist looked it up in the list of side effects and there was nothing listed. Have any of the male patients experienced this and if so does that sort itself out too? On the plus side, I am almost 4 days clean (if you dont count the meds) just need to sort these side eff...

how to ontain my prescribede med
Post a Reply
yes I need help having my medication filled. There is such a high demand of subutex in my area that the pharmacies are doing a a member ship programmer loyal customer program and they are turning people down and that's just not the same legal or ethical. I was just wondering if I could order you know I get a prescription and if I could send my prescription and just order them online. I like the big ones the 54 411 because the other ones just don't do well with me but if you have any ideas just let me know and thank you very much I appreciate it

orange subutex 153

I refilled my monthly subutex Tuesday and received orange oblong tablets inscribed 153. My pharmacy has carried 54/111 over three years. Does anyone know if the orange ones are going to permanently replace all other generic Buprenorphine? Also, are any other patients experiencing loss in quality? Thank you ## I have just received the same orange 8 mg 153 Subutex from MFG Actavis Elizabeth...I haven't taken any yet becaus I am not sure what to expect as far as changes, I have been taking the MFG Hi-Tech 8 mg Subutex for a year and a half. Des anyone have any experience taking the new Actavis 8 mg Subutex switching from other brands... ## Hello, Sammy! How are you? I doubt this is a permanent replacement, it's most likely that the distributor your pharmacy orders from was able to ...

orange subutex

Do they make a orange subutex? ## I just got my script filled this month for subutex. I used to get the white tablet with an arrow and 8 on each side. Today I got 8mg Orange oblonged shaped with 153 and a moon on it. They are pretty big compared to what I was getting. Same thing except they just don't dissolve as quickly and have a different taste. So apparently they do make orange ones, just found out today. ## Just for added confirmation - yes, it is true that they do make an orange oblong/oval generic 8mg Subutex (Buprenorphine hydrochloride) sublingual tablet with 153 on one side and the Actavis' half moon logo on the other. This tablet also contains the following set of inactive ingredients (binders/fillers), which may be different than what you might've been used to ta...

can u take subutex after methadone
Post a Reply
Hi all, I am 39, male and am going to take 8 MG's subutex after being on methadone for 4 years( I'm just over it, tired) 60 MG's next day took 30 MG's next day took 20mgs and finally 10 MG's to taper a bit. I then waited 43 hours and am in moderate withdrawal. I have been in much worse withdrawal then now but decided to go ahead with 8 MG's of sub now to see, lab rat style, if I precip or get relief. There seems to be many different experiences, some say 24 hours some say 72. I will try to give an update if I precip and will for sure if I don't. Fingers crossed, I hope its the latter. Any input or encoragement would be appreciated. I am determined to finally beat this thing, don't want to turn 40 and still be an active addict. Much love to all of you. Love a
