 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.

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... ...

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???

Why is there no information anywhere on how to get off suboxone or zubsolv.... since recently I was switched to the zubsolv and I hate it. Any success stories out there? If so, please share how u did it. Been addicted to opiates for four yrs and on synthetics now for a yr. My doctor is useless and I'd rather hear it from someone who's lived it anyways. ## There is absolutely no way to avoid withdrawals from opiates. ## Subs are made to be taken long term, all depending on your abuse and history. my Dr had me on it for 6 yrs. I have the understanding that I will be on it the rest of my life due to the damage I've done abusing H, oxycintin 80s, roxys, morphine for a good decade ...sub's are harder to get off of then anything out there, H included, due to its Half Life.

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."

That could be a symptom of withdrawal. Have you experienced any other symptoms?

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.

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 ... ...

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.

how long does zubsolv block opiates
4 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"... ...
