Subutex Overview

Buprenorphine is an opioid, a semi-synthetic derivative of thebaine. It is a 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...

Doc wants to increase dose
1 Reply RSS
I have been on 8 mg of subutex for about 4 months for chronic pain that I had for 6 months. The pain was from overdoing bicycle and motorcycling for many years. I am pain free right now. In a few months I want to quit and see if the pain comes back. The doc said to increase the dose to 16 mg a day right now. He says it will make it easier to quit when the time comes. This makes no sense to me. What is he thinking???? ## Hello, Daniel! How are you? I must admit that I am also confused by that. Going by the information as provided by the FDA and the NIH, it's typically harder to stop a medication from a higher dosage. 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. ...

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...

can subutex be a small whit round pill with 8 on one side and an arrow on the other
84 Replies RSS
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...

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!

My doctor just put me on subutex along with percocet. I've been on percocet for yrs for severe and chronic migraines. He told me to take the subutex and if it doesn't work to take a perc.

I currently am a subutex dr. at south hills recovery project and desprately need to change. This place is very unprofessional and i have severe medical issues that need addressed. Dr.will not even listen. Please help. ## Hello, Steve! How are you? If you're there to be treated for addiction with the Subutex, then that is what this doctor is supposed to be concerned with, for other medical issues, you'll need to see a different doctor, or see this one on an appointment scheduled just for that if he does such, rather than during your Subutex visits. Is anyone aware of other doctors that they can recommend in that area?
