I have been on subutex for 9 months now. But i have a very big problem next month k mart pharmacy will no longer carry subutex. I live in the tri cities in tn. I have called about 35 pharmacies around they either do not take new people getting subutex or do not carry it at all. I have no insurance i found 1 that cost 340 which is way more than the 215 i paid at k mart. Also some pharmacies I know only carry the small ones which to me do not work as good as the bigger ones. Huge difference i go back the 8th next month so if there is anyone that knows of a good pharmacy in my area your help would be greatly appreciated ## Hello, Scott! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're having. However, if you've called the pharmacies, then you've likely not actually received ...

113 Replies RSS
Hello All, I recently just got changed from suboxone to subutex due to a pretty bad allergic reaction to the naloxone in the suboxone. Basically my question for everyone is which generic do you guys prefer my pharmacist can order any kind for me so Im at the moment just got the Roxanne ones 8mg they are white round tablets. This is my first day using and am already noticing my migraines are starting to subside not fully but starting too. So yeah if anyone has any suggestions please let me know all the ups and downs that you guys have been experiencing thanks! Good luck to one and all! D ## I may not have personal experience with either of these generics, but I did want to go ahead and link you to a couple other threads here with more information on other Subutex reviews: Discuss/can-sub...

Generic subutex/buprenorphine. Ranking from best to worst..
9 Replies RSS
This is for people who actually take Subutex for the intended purpose for which it is used. So if you actually take the medication sublingually, this thread will help you. I have been taking buprenorphine for three and a half years now. This is what I have found: (8mg) Best: Avtavis 153/half moon (orange) Middle: Roxanne 54/411 (white) Worst: Hi-Tech 8/arrow Again, this is for people who take medication as prescribed. You can actually break the medication in half and put it and the front of your lip like dip & chewing tobacco. It will take longer for it to dissolve like this but you will get much much more of the bupe. ## Does keeping the leftover saliva\bupe mixture under your toung for longer periods help at all? I try not to swallow the bupe-liva for 30 min.+...but it's a pai...

Does anyone know??? I need help? ## Hello, Bev! How are you? They do have a search engine that you can use to check for doctors in your area. You can find it at click here. It allows you to search by zip code and will provide the doctor's contact information, so you can call them to see if they have patient openings. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I'm sorry, I should've added that it would be the same doctors, they can usually prescribe Subutex or Suboxone. However, you should be aware that unless you're pregnan...

Need Dr. to Prescribe Subutex-Naloxone Allergy
87 Replies RSS
I am seeking help. I am from the Winston-Salem area of North Carolina. I am an addict of 18 years. It is time to quit. I have friends who have left the addiction circle. They have successfully taken buprenorphine. Here is my problem. I am severely allergic to the blocker in suboxone - naloxone. It is not an option for me. I have a dear friend who gave me her remaining subutex tablets. She tapered off and is clean and doing well now. I have been clean for 1 week which is a PHENOMENAL accomplishment for me! I am afraid of what will happen if I cannot find a doctor who will prescribe the subutex. Please, will someone out there lead me in the direction of a Physician/MD/Doctor that will write me Subutex? I have called so many places. I have tried, and other directorie...

Subutex (Buprenorphine) Script & Mail Order Pharmacy?
1 Reply RSS
I am prescribed two 8mg buprenorphine (subutex) tablets per day as I am deathly allergic to Naloxone in the combination medications like Suboxone and Bunavail. I have, at times had trouble getting my prescription filled locally. Sometimes the pharmacy I use regularly doesn't have them all, especially when I get a full month script, and of course, I find myself running back and forth to and from the pharmacy to pick up small pieces of my prescription. I left a daily dosing program to attend a once monthly clinic because I could not afford the trips back and forth. At times, I have to run to the pharmacy 3-4 times per week and it's approximately 70 miles round-trip from my home to the pharmacy, and on top of that, the clinic I go to is now enforcing once per week counseling so tha...
