Zubsolv 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...

ZUBSOLV 5.7

i was on subutex 8mg and ive been reading about these new subutexs with the 8 and the arrow on them. i got a different kind there zubsolv 5.7 mg/1.4 mg ? i dont understand is one of these pills equal to a 8 mg? there small white round tablet imprinted with 5.7 on the front? ## Subutex contains just the narcotic Buprenoprhine as the active ingredient, so an 8mg tablet of it contains that much of the Buprenorphine… Where the Zubsolv is actually an equivalent to Suboxone, because it contains the Buprenorphine (in this case 5.7mgs) and Naloxone (in this case 1.4mgs). Learn more Subutex details here. Learn more Suboxone details here. So no, they aren't equal to the 8mg Subutex tablets. This medication is a narcotic opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause s...

Has anyone tried it? ## Ya, I got it yesterday. I'm not really digging it. I have taken both suboxone 8mg tabs, and strips. This does not seem to be near as strong to me. Its only been a day so maybe it will get better. But, its suppose to be great for takin effect quicker? And it burns the shiznikks out of my mouth! ## tried it yesterday, really good in my opinion a big step forward, easy to use and you get rid of the hideous aftertaste. Haven't noticed any difference in strength. ## Much, much, much better taste and really fast dissolve time - I really can recommend Zubsolv!! ## Hello, Based on my research, Zubsolv is a medication that contains the active ingredients Buprenorphine + Naloxone. This medication is intended for the treatment of Opioid dependance. Buprenorphine is ...

zubsolv wean off
1 Reply RSS
Taking 1.4 zubsolv twice a day can I cut it in half to wean off? ## Hi mark, From what I can tell, it doesn't look like there's a score line on the 1.4mg/5.7mg pill. And because Zubsolv (buprenorphine + naloxone) is composed of two different ingredients that (in theory) could inadvertently be separated if you were to cut it in half, I would recommend contacting your Dr. or local pharmacist to determine if halving the pill makes any difference as far as getting evenly distributed doses of each active ingredient. More often than not it's usually fine cut pills in half that aren't in extended release form, but I just think it's best to play it safe until you get a doctor's opinion or feedback from someone with personal experience. Hope this helps!

Im thinking of switching from strips to zubsolv next month because I have no insurance is there anyone whos switched and liked it? ## It is the same, just under a different formulation and brand name, so it should work the same. 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 a big price difference? ## I know you posted this a long time ago, but if you haven't switched, I would not recommend it. I did and it is awful. I was down to between 2 to 4 mgs of suboxone a day. My ins stopped paying for them so 3 weeks ago my doc switched me to zubsolv, telling me that it's the same even better. He said stronger and easier to get off of. I got 30 5.7 tabs and ...

i have drove all over the county of pasco and called 40 or 50 phamacys and not one has zubsolv half have not heard of it why my wifes insurance didnt leave her on subxone is a mystery to me but most likly has to do with a kick back. now she has to go with out meds for over a week now. i even called the company that makes it and they cant find it. can any one help me. i live in pasco co florida city of new port richey ## Hello, Tim! How are you? I am very sorry about the problem that you and your wife are having! Unfortunately, the pharmacies that you call likely didn't give you an honest answer. This medication does contain a potent narcotic and since they have no way of knowing if the person on the phone is a legitimate patient with a need, or a potential thief, they'll usually...

is the zubsolv better than suboxone
3 Replies RSS
I have been taken 2 8mg suboxone strips a day for 2 years and my ins won't pay now and they told me about this new one called zubsolv...I'm thinking of switching has anybody taken it and it worked cuz I'm scared of goin from something that works to something that don't ## Hello, Justin! How are you? Zubsolv contains the exact same ingredients as Suboxone. Buprenorphine coupled with Naloxone, both are most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so as long as you doctor approves, you should be able to make a smooth switch. The FDA lists this medication as being 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? ## FDA approve...

How long after taking tram can i get back on my zubsolv.i take zubsolv 5.7mg/1.4 but hve taken tramadohl for a couple of days since i was out of my zubsolv.I have my prescription and want to get back on it.Thankd ## Hello, Amy! How are you doing? Since Zubsolve contains Naloxone, you need to be in full withdrawal, before you can start taking it, again. Just like when you first started taking it. Thus, a few days will most likely be required, to avoid precipitated withdrawals. Your doctor should be able to advise you on how long. 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? ## How long after taking subzolv ,can i start taking ...

Switched from 8mg. Sub strip to Zubsolv
1 Reply RSS
hello, this is my second month of being on Zubsolv from 8mg sub film. they work just fine for me. I actually use the copay card and got my prescription today absolutely free. I'm in the process of actually cutting back with the ultimate goal of taking nothing at all. Have a great day! ## Awesome! I'm so very glad that it's working for you. Some people have had problems switching. 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. Have you had any new side effects, or has the switch been completely smooth?

zubsolv sucks !!!
1 Reply RSS
After being on strips for 5 years and pills for 25 years I know !! This medication sucks! personally I think it is a sugar pill! It does nothing full detox everyday! ## @Jeffrey, Sorry to hear about that. I for one have also noticed a lot of negative feedback surrounding Zubsolv in comparison to brand name Suboxone. Makes me wonder if they stuck a few different "inactive" ingredients in there that prevent it from being absorbed properly. I found this to be the cases with other manufacturer's pain meds as well. Actavis for instance, reformulated Watson's Norco with the same dosage and now it doesn't even work half as good. The only differences this leaves room for is within the list of inactive ingredients. Perhaps the pharmacy can give you a print out of the differen...

Withdrawals from Zubsolv
3 Replies RSS
I was taking 2-scripts for oxy and now taking Zubsolv but just ran out after 65 days. I'm miserable not as bad as withdrawal from oxy but bad enough. I've got cold chills and sweating at the same time. Horrible feeling. Did anyone on here experience this when they were finished with Zubsolv? ## Hello, Matt! How are you? Zubsolv contains a very potent narcotic, Buprenorphine, so yes, it will cause withdrawals if you suddenly stop taking it, without tapering off very slowly. 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. What dosage were you taking? ## Hi, I was on hydrocodone 10 mg and 100 mg nyucenta. The reason I was on those is because I have had 2 foot/ank...
