Zubsolv Overview

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...

Constant feeling of withdrawal with zubsolv
I have been taking Zubsolv for about 6 months now, prior to that I was on Suboxone. I preferred to stay on Suboxone but since insurance companies seem to rule the world I have no choice but to get zubsolv unless I want to pay hundreds of dollars. I had been taking 4mg of Suboxone and making it just fine for over a year on the same dose, after switching to zubsolv, I was originally taking 2 of the smaller triangular pills 1.4/.36 and I was constantly struggling, I was kicking and achy like I was having withdrawal. I told my doctor so she prescribed me 3 of them now a day. I'm not sure how it compares to Suboxone if I'm taking more or less. I am still feeling the same symptoms and they are worse than they were. My whole body aches my legs kick it feels just as bad as when I was ac...

Zubsolv reviews
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 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...

tapering off zubsolv
I'm on Zubsolv, 5.7 mg 2×day. I'm wondering if anyone knows how to taper off this drug? I've been on it for a year now and want to get off of it. My doc seems keeps telling me that " Well you know, your really suppose to be taking 3 ×s a day bc your parking spots aren't fully blocked." I feel like he's pushing me on this drug and to keep taking it. I'm ready to get off it now so if anyone know what does to go down to, please help. Thanks for reading! Btw, this drug did help me get off from hydrocodone. I'm a chronic pain patient in lower back. Did wonders for me but I'm ready to move on! ## Hi Robin, I think it's wise that you're staying mindful of your Dr's motives behind choosing to keep you on this medication. If you get t...

new to zubsolv 5.7 mg
i just started zubsolv and i love it. most pharmacy's did not carry it. however, it can be ordered overnight. most insurance covers it but may need a pre-aurthorization. its much easier to take then suboxan tabs or strips. you still put it under your tongue but it dissolve quickly. it did burn at first but this went away after a couple minutes and there's no gross glue aftertaste like sub. strips. the 5.7mg. is confusing at first. i contacted Orexo, the company that makes zubsolve. they explained that its simply a different formulation. you are actually absorbing 8 mg.......good luck to all !!! ## Hi Diana, I’m glad to hear that your experience with ZUBSOLV has been positive so far. I have worked in addiction treatment for several years with my area of expertise being medi...

zubsolv can not find
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...

Taking Zubsolv !.4/0.36 canyou receive pain relief or do they increase it?
I'm taking Zubsolv 1.4/0.36 once a day for my chronic back pain(injury). It only lasts about 12 hrs. The first few times I used it I got a numbing sensation in my mouth. I continued since I 've not had anything for my back pain in several months. I'm disappointed that this not giving me more relief. Haas anyone started c this does and increased due to not giving you relief for your pain? This is still expensive for me, $134.99 for 30 tablets. ## You do have to understand that this isn't actually intended to relieve pain, Zubsolv is actually used to treat opiate addiction. Even though it contains the opiate, Buprenorphine, there have been quite a few people who discovered that it didn't relieve their pain. This is a narcotic, so it has the potential to be habit formin...

Withdrawals from Zubsolv
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?

zubsolv
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?
