 Zubsolv Buprenorphine + Naloxone
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)...

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 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.

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... ...

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! ...

new to zubsolv 5.7 mg
2 Replies RSS
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... ...

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... ...

tapering off zubsolv
3 Replies RSS
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.

kidney pain with Zubsolv??
2 Replies RSS
Anyone having kidney pain with this medicine. I have been in pain since they switched me from sub to this Zubsolv. Blood in urine 1-2 day. Kidney pain going on 4 day. I need advice Anyone.... ## If you're having blood in your urine, you need to speak to your doctor, so they can check it out. It may not be related to the medication, but only your doctor will be able to let you know for sure. Are you prone to kidney infections? ## It turns out that I have kidney stones in my right kidney. The new medication also made me very constipated which caused an internal hemorrhoid. I had a major bleeding issue today from the internal hemorrhoid and had to go to the ER. So the moral of the story is when taking any type of opiates make sure you take a stool softener. Not sure if the kidney stone... ...

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... ...

zubsolv not suboxne or subutex.
1 Reply RSS
I was recently on zubsolv for 2 months. I quit cold turkey and amazingly no withdraws!!! I took suboxne for the same amount of time before and was severely sick for near 2 weeks. So i would recommend zubsolv. Not sure if it was a miracle or something crazy happened. ## I do find it interesting that Zubsolv containing the same active ingredients as Suboxone (buprenorphine + naloxone) would cause such a completely different reaction in some users. Do you think your positive experience with Zubsolv could've just been a matter of each manufacturer putting a different set of binders/fillers in each tablet? If you happen to know the pill imprint or who makes that particular brand, I could post back here with the corresponding list of inactive ingredients to help determine what it is that ... ...

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 does zubsolv block opiates
2 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: 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"... ...
