Pharmacies that carry buprenorphine made by Mylan or Roxanne 54 411

I've been taking buprenorphine 8mg for 3 1/2 years now, all of a sudden every pharmacy in our area (that I know of) has switched the manufacturer they are order from, frustrating to me as I just seem to see a difference all though there shouldn't be. Does anyone know a pharmacy that still carries bup mg with the imprint 54 411? ## Same here. Every store is on backorder for the past 7 days. I'm from mid south Pa. ## Same here!!! I'm from Salt Lake City, Utah, and I've been on it for 8 years now. It started a month ago, when the pharmacies were on back order for 54 411, and now it's EVERY TYPE of generic Buprenorphine from every manufacturer. Last week, I went to fill my script, and people were fighting over ONE BROKEN TABLET!!! I wish pharmacies, manufacturers, an...

tablet white 44 198

This is a generic 8mg suboxone buphnorphine pill ## pill imprint 44 198 is a generic 8 mg suboxone ## I'm sorry, but this is not correct. Tablet marked with a 44 followed by 3 additional numbers are all over the counter products. This one is currently being manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 50mgs of Dinenhydrinate. The FDA lists this medication as being used to treat or prevent nausea, vomiting and vertigo. Its typical side effects include drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. Are there any questions or concerns? ## I have to pill. It's round white blank on one side and has a 44 on top of score and 198 on bottom of score. Some say its Subutex others say its another medication stating with a D. could you please help as soon as possible? Thank you,...

What does methadone syrup look and smell like

I need to know what Methadone syrup looks and smells like. I have a bottle of syrup and am not sure if it is Methadone or Codeine. ## Hello Lee, Do you have a brand for your syrup? Methadone syrup comes in different colors depending on strength and brands so I would need to know that information to give you an accurate answer. Otherwise you would need to have it taken to a pharmacy to see if they could identify the liquid for you.

Is zubsolv better than suboxone

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...

Generic subutex/buprenorphine. Ranking from best to worst..

This is for people who actually take Subutex for the intended purpose for which it is used. So if you actually take the medication sublingually, this thread will help you. I have been taking buprenorphine for three and a half years now. This is what I have found: (8mg) Best: Actavis 153/half moon (orange) Middle: Roxanne 54/411 (white) Worst: Hi-Tech 8/arrow Again, this is for people who take medication as prescribed. You can actually break the medication in half and put it and the front of your lip like dip & chewing tobacco. It will take longer for it to dissolve like this but you will get much much more of the bupe. ## Does keeping the leftover saliva\bupe mixture under your toung for longer periods help at all? I try not to swallow the bupe-liva for 30 min.+...but it's a pai...

orange subutex 153 half moon

I use these and they work great. I was on the roxanna pharma ones that were circular in size and these orange ones work way better. Wish I had been on them from the start. ## I just got those oblong orange ones today with Half moon - bottle says its subutex has anyone had these are they better than the white ones ? I don't know do I take them the same ? ## Are these new orange subutex time released? ## Can you please post a picture if you can. Thanks! ## @post #1, Reviews from the following discussion thread do "suggest" that it works better than the white ones as well as the strips: Discuss/orange-subutex-153-half-moon-286803.htm @post #2, No, these one's are not time-released... they are sublingual though. @post #3, Navigating google, I wasn't able to locate any im...

buprenorphine 8mg with 460 imprint vs 54 411

Does the buprenorphine 8mg 460 work as well as 54 411's? I'm curious as I've seen other imprints, just not 460. Please let me know if they are better or worse. ## BETTER. The only thing is they taste a tad worse. I use 1mg intranasally a day and these are slightly smaller and worker slightly better in my opinion. ## Among other influential factors, some people may respond better or worse to the different binders/fillers upon switching from one tablet to the next. That said, the only true way to compare efficacy is to go through trial and error with both versions yourself and not solely based off someone else's feedback. Inactive ingredients in the 460 pill are: Lactose Monohydrate, Mannitol, Povidones, Anhydrous Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Butylated Hydroxyanisole, Magn...

Rhodes/Purdue buprenorphine hcl 8mg RP b8 vs Roxanne 54 411

I have made the switch from the 8mg films to 8mg buprenorphine tablets only. With all the research I've done and experience I do my best to stay away from actavis mylan and nowadays sandoz. I noticed everyone has enjoyed the Roxanne now westward generics amongst hi-tech coming in second/mylan. I have no experience with mylan bup and don't want to take the risk even as mylan has always been a waste imo. I'm not a fan of allergan (actavis) taking over watson so depending on the drug dispenses I most stay away. There are as of now 7 manufacturers of generic buprenorphine hcl 8mg (generic subutex). They are in order of my preferred with not much experience except with brand name: *roxanne (now westward pharma)- 54 411 *hi tech- 8 ^(arrow) *mylan- M924 *teva (allergen/activas own...

Pharmacy that carries Subutex near Jamestown TN

I'm looking for a pharmacy that can fill a prescription for Subutex near Jamestown TN. I can't find one around here that does. ## Hello Crystal, Unfortunately this is going to be a rather difficult issue to resolve. The reason for this is because pharmacies will often not tell you over the phone what kind of prescription medication they carry, this is to avoid aiding criminals who are attempting to steal certain drugs. This means that you will need to physically visit each location to see if they carry what you are looking for. In addition, without having your prescription in hand they might not tell you even if you are there in person, again to avoid giving criminals easy information. Other users have claimed that smaller mom and pop type pharmacies tend to be more willing to g...

Methadone and morphine for end of life care

My Mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer - spindle cell sarcoma. They have given her 6 months to live. Right now the cancer has spread to her upper rib, right hip, lungs and brain. She also has a clogged artery. She wanted to spend her last months at home so we set up hospice there to care for her during these next months. They started her on morphine to control the pain on .25ml and raised it to .5ml. She started forgetting things and becoming anxious. She forgot one day to tell the nurse she was in pain and waited too long. That night it took a while to get her pain under control. Hospice raised her dosage to .75ml and began administering at least every 4 hours or as needed. Sometimes every 3 hours. Mom became more confused, tired, weak and was losing her memory. She couldn't fini...
