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, Bunavail (buprenorphine HCl and/or naloxone HCl; typically used for opioid addiction)...

how long do you have to wait to start taking subs or zubsolv, how sick do you have to be? Can I cut the pill in have I don't know if I need a whole one ## Hello, Pen! How are you? You should follow your doctor's instructions for starting it. You need to be in full withdrawals, otherwise the Naloxone in this medication could throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals. They are not time released, so they can be cut to lower the dosage, if your prescriber approves. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, 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 does zubsolv block opiates
5 Replies RSS
I took a zubsolv at 6:00am this morning, how long will it block opiates ## Hi hollywood, According to the FDA, "Buprenorphine's average elimination half-life from plasma ranges from 24-42 hours, and Naloxone's is anywhere from 2-12 hours". Ref: accessdata.fda.gov/drugsatfda_docs/label/2013/204242s000lbl.pdf With that said, not only will it depend on how much you took, but also how long you've been taking it for.. or if this was just a one time thing for you? However you can also use the half life to try and estimate about how long each dose will be most active in your system, because after the time frame of each half life listed above, you're essentially going to end up with "half of what you originally took" and then "half of that remaining half"...

Stopped zubsolv yesterday, out of system
1 Reply RSS
I've been on zubsolv for probably a year now after a year of suboxone after 8 years of Percocet. I am having major anger and depression issues and want off this drug. It's been a full 24 hrs that I haven't taken one and I don't plan to take it ever again. How long until my mood stabilizes? How long will the drug be in my system?? Thanks! ## @Dez, According to the FDA, Buprenorphine's average elimination half-life can range anywhere from 24-42 hours, and Naloxone's from 2-12 hours. With such a long half life combined with the duration of time you've been taking Zubsolv, it seems to me like it would probably take a good several days to completely leave your body. That's just an estimate though, as everyone metabolizes drugs differently. As for the mood swin...

changes in taste buds with zubsolv

Since starting zubsolv yesterday, I can't taste anything. Is this normal? ## Hello, Nurse! How are you? Yes, this has been reported by other users of this medication. As listed by the FDA, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. This medication also carries the risk of being habit forming. However, such side effects are usually transient and tend to go away with time, after your body gets used to the medication. It usually takes about 4 to 6 weeks.

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.

3 Replies RSS
I wonder if this medication is what they say it is I feel a conspiracy??? Anyone else??? ## Absolutely!!! I was on 2 mg suboxone films for at least 5 years, until Independant Health decided to go to bed with the makers of zubsolv. It DOES NOT work the same way!!! The meds half life is not at long at sub was. I could go a day and a half without feeling withdrawal symptoms when on suboxone. Not zubsolv!!! After 24 hours I had major withdrawal! Plus they made it impossible to wean off of zubsolv! At least with the zub films you could cut off pieces to wean. What do you do w that tiny white tablet??? Thank you crap healthcare system we have in the US. Insurance companies really have is all by the balls. Think Im just gonna end up paying out of pocket for suboxone. I know it works! ## March ...

Ive been taking suboxonr for 2 yrs, my insurance switched me to zubsolv which ive been on 1.4mg every 2 days for 5 months. I went to urgent care center for strep throat and was given pain med script for norco. It was dumb to fill it and i found a pharmacy to do it but i dont want to take them and now im affraid my regular pharmacy will see that and not fill my refular zubsolv prescription. Any thoughts on this, please help!f ## Your dr will also see that the two rxs were filled. ## @jess, I believe the only honest way to know for certain what the pharmacy will do regarding your situation is to ask them directly. They will always adhere to their stringent policies, so if you don't get the answer you're looking for from them, then it seems to me like it would probably also be a go...
