Buprenorphine is a semi-synthetic, mixed agonist–antagonist opioid receptor modulator that is used to treat opioid addiction in higher dosages, to control moderate acute pain in non-opioid-tolerant individuals in lower dosages and to control moderate chronic pain in even smaller doses.[3] It is available in a variety of formulations: Subutex, Suboxone, Zubsolv (buprenorphine HCl and/or naloxone HCl; typically used for opioid addiction), Temgesic (sublingual tablets for moderate to sever...

mommy on subutex
Can my insurance abruptly only pay for 8 mg of my medicine when the doc has prescribed me 16 mg which is two 8 mg a day since I started the pregnancy I'm 22 days away from my due date my doctor told me its dangerous to taper this far along and I've been responding so well to treatment.I have to pay 175 every two weeks out of pocket for the visits and insurance has been taking care of the meds... ? ## Hello, Mommyof3! How are you? There is actually nothing that decrees that your insurance has to cover it, at all. However, since you are pregnant, you might be able to get an exception, so you should speak to your doctor about it, there is paperwork they can submit to make the request. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effec...

I'm pregnant and only take 1mg of subutex a day
I'm pregnant and only take 1 mg a day of subutex for a year. I want to stop. its been 3 days and I can't sleep! I don't want to tell my dr cause I just want to quit. I'm so sick of feeling this way and being addicted. is it safe for me to quit cold turkey? ## Hello, Niki! How are you? Congratulations on the baby! No, it is definitely not safe for you to just stop taking it, while you're pregnant. While you may do okay, the withdrawal effects could be very dangerous for your baby and might result in miscarriage or stillbirth. Please, speak to your doctor about this, if you really feel you need to stop taking it, they can help you do so safely. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizzines...

can subutex be a small whit round pill with 8 on one side and an arrow on the other
My friend takes 8mg subutex and when he picked up his script today, they weren't the usual white tablet. They were white and the size of a 2mg subutex with an 8 on one side and an arrow on the other. Could his pharmacist have made a big mistake or are these just a different brand?? ## From what I can tell these tablets do contain 8mgs of Buprenorphine, the active ingredient in Subutex. They were originally released in the U.k. and then became available in the U.S. when the generic market for the medication opened up here. So yes, just a different manufacturer, they are made by Arrow, which explains the logo on the tablet, they use that on all of their products. Are there any questions or comments? ## Thank you so much! I actually did some research on Arrow Generics and saw that they...

Finding Subutex Dr?
I am really having a hard time finding a doctor who treats with Subutex and not Suboxone. I have chronic pain syndrome and relief-seeking behavior soon became drug-seeking behavior. My psychiatrist put me on Subutex, and my pain was reduced a little, but I wasn't so much into drug seeking anymore. I was treated for 5 years. Then I moved, and I can't find anyone in Ohio who does this. I might have to move back to Chicago! Any suggestions? ## What is your particular issue with using Suboxone, rather than Subutex? They both contain the exact same narcotic to treat pain and/or addiction, Buprenorphine. The only difference is that the Suboxone also contains Naloxone, to help prevent someone from abusing other narcotics, while they are using it. If you are no longer having a problem w...

Help! How can Subutex patients be treated for pain?
I've been a Subutex patient for a year taking 8mg a day. If I get in an accident, how can a doctor treat me for pain. I've been worried about this ever since I started and I haven't spoke to my doctor yet. I sincerely do not care about getting high anymore and this really bothers me. Can somebody please help? Thank you! ## There is no need to worry, they will be able to treat you. Subutex only contains the active ingredient Buprenorphine, it does not contain the added Naloxone that Suboxone does, which is the ingredient that neutralizes other opiates. This is a narcotic analgesic, 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? ## Thank you! That...

Am I screwed?
I take 8 mg of Subutex a day and have been for almost year. If I'm I a car accident or something and have to have surgery will I be screwed? Will there be nothing they can do for the pain? I don't care about getting high at all anymore, but I fear being in pain and not having any option to control it. Does anybody know how a doctor would help me? Thank you! ## No, Subutex only contains the narcotic Buprenorphine, not the Naloxone that Suboxone also contains, thus it doesn't neutralize other narcotics, so they would be able to treat you. This is a narcotic analgesic, 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? ## Thank you so much! I was reall...

new on subutex, day 3 now and side effects quite bad
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...
