Subutex Overview

Buprenorphine is a semisynthetic opioid derivative of thebaine.

New Subutex laws
92 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? ...

SETTING RECORD STRAIGHT!! how long after taking subutex can u take methadone
7 Replies RSS
Both subutex and suboxone will cause precipitated withdrawal. It is the bupe that connects to the receptors and kicks the methadone out. Naloxone is just an extra blocker!! I am a social worker at a clinic. Waiting at least 12 hours only if on low dose 20mg or less should b OK. But 24 preferred. ## If you take a little less then half of a 8mg subutext 15 hours ago is it safe to take 20mgs of methadone does anyone know! ! ! ## Why do people always minimize Naloxone? EMTs give the ODs Narcan, which brings the patient into withdrawal. Naltrexone (Vivitrol) has been used with chronic opiate addicts and alcoholics in several forms, pill, 30 day shot, implant. It is a VERY strong blocker and has many side effects. I have personal experience with this medication & know that it is not somet...

Generic Subutex/buprenorphine - Which manufacture do you prefer?
14 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...

54_411 vs M 924
14 Replies RSS
I've been on Subs for a while and i just received the Mylan 924 for the first time... I've been with Roxanne 54_411 for some time now... Does anyone have an opinion as far as which manufacturer is better. Or what's your opinion personally? ## Hi Strawz, Although I haven't taken Subutex (buprenorphine), I did want to offer an outsider's opinion when it comes to switching tablets or manufacturers in general. The truth of the matter is that each tablet can affect each person differently, which would in essence render any feedback null as there's no way to determine if you will experience the same benefits or side effects as someone else, until you take it and know for yourself. I think this is largely due to the seemingly ever-changing list of inactive ingredients (...

White Round Pill 54 411 how to take
16 Replies RSS
How do u take a subutex? Is it the same as taking as taking a subuxone ? ## This is an 8mg sublingual tablet and yes, they are used in very similar ways to treat the same things, except Subutex eliminates the Naloxone that can throw someone into withdrawals from taking it too soon. Learn more Subutex details here. Since it is also an opiate narcotic, it does have the potential to be habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Are there any other questions or comments? Does anyone else have any advice to add? ## Hi katiy, I haven't found any prescribing information, but a recent review from another Subutex user was stating that "the pamphlet says to just let the tablet dissolve under your tongue, and to not swallow the tabl...
