I have been getting the generic Subutex Roxane brand 54 411 Buprenorphine tablets for months now from Walmart pharmacy and the past two times I've gotten my prescription filled there, I was given a different generic made by Hi Tech with an 8 and an arrow. I asked them why the change because those little tablets just are not the same and they said the Roxane ones could not be ordered. I called around to other pharmacies I have gotten my prescription filled at before also and was also told that the Mylan M 924s can no longer be ordered either. What's going on with the Roxane and Mylan Buprenorphine tablets? Did they stop making them or is there some kind of shortage? I had the choice of getting the small Hi Tech tablets which seem alot less potent than the Roxane or the Actavis 153 half moon orange tablets which I cannot stand at all. Has anyone else had a problem getting the Roxanes or the Mylans or know for sure what's happening? I did see that Roxane merged with West Ward but don't know if that has anything to do with it or when the merge occurred and the 54 411 tablets are still listed on the West Ward site as a medication they manufacturer. I've heard everything from they are not making either of the brands anymore to there is just a temporary shortage of the brands.

Re: subs saved my life (# 18)

Hello everyone. An update on my psot with CVS and Mylan replacing with West Ward formerly Roxanne: even though on my patient record with CVS "Mylan Only" they still gave me a different one. Not even the West Ward this month/ Today I pick it up and clearly stating on the receipt "Mylan Only" (they had two days to fill it, too) I open the package in the car and I couldn't believe it! Sun Pharmaceuticals in India brand. I am a pretty stable compassionate person and decided to at least try it since I do have the option of returning/exchanging the unopened other three bottles.Lo and behold these are just are a good match to the Mylan. I am pleased surprisingly so. So' if you get the Sun brand with the white tablet imprint 460 don't worry. These do tend to burn initially slightly but they dissolve very quickly and have very little taste. From now on these are more than satisfactory for a generic. I know everyone is different but give them a try. You will be satisfied as well. Again everyones makeup per se is a little different. One thing for sure is these are much better than Actavis and extremeley better than Hi Tech (worst ones ever for me). Costco here in Northern California is cheapest but issue the Hi Tech ones. So spend a little more money and call around. Teva is the best but hard to find and very expensive. Mylan, West Ward and Sun for me are the same. Happy trails and it really is so good to be alive and free from the demon of addiction. Yes I am addicted in some way to these. But slowly tapering off begin this month and have my life, wife and job back. I don't do the stupid crap I used to do. I have a life worth living finally after 40+ years of fighting the demon. This medicine really saved my life.

It's just a shortage. I'm in Florida and I can still get the 54 411s so they might have just sold all they have where you are. Ask for the big white pills that have RP on the front. I believe they are from the Rhodes brand. That should help you till mylan starts redistributing the mylan 924s on July 24th.

Re: davidjw1 (# 22)

I'm very happy to hear that. I really pray you get your life back man. These pain pills destroy lifes. And the subs are helping a lot of people finally get off. I hope you get your wife back and finally get off subs as well and be drug free which subs don't have any narcotic in it and you can pass a drug panel taking them so I've heard. 40 yrs+ is a long time to go thru he'll but it's worth getting out of that and at first being normal will seem weird you'll have to adjust being you again. Happy trails man and I hope all goes the way you hope. And I've been doing the Rhodes brand but wonder if the brand you got may be different I haven't heard or seen them so thanks for sharing the knowledge. You're helping people right now just on info.

Re: Krissy (# 16)

Try the Rhodes RP on one side and 8 b on the other. They are big and white like the mylan and seem better to me than the Roxanne.

I now am taking the Rhodes brand with RP on one side and 8b on the other. Not that my pharmacy doesn't have the 54 411s or hi techs or orange ones but we felt the hi techs just weren't working out. Until around July 24th when mylan starts filling the pharmacies we will just have to make do.

No, they still make the white 54 411 subutex bc I get them every once in a while. I try asking for them everytime I go to the pharmacy but the pharmacist will tell me they're more expensive. The orange half moon subutex are cheaper so my insurance will only cover them. So I usually get the white ones and I get the 54 411 white ones when they run outa the orange half moons which is once every 3 months, bc I can not stand the small white ones with an arrow on one side and a 8 on the other. It doesn't feel like ur getting ur full 8mg. I dont like the orange half moons either but I can deal with them. If they try to give me the small white ones with the arrow and a 8 ill refuse them and tell them I want a different brand, but they still make the 8mg 54 411. It's just ur pharmacy probably doesn't wanna spend the money to buy that brand. That's probably why they dont have them, but yah the small white arrow and 8 are useless. I hate them and every one I know likes the orange football ones with a half moon or a 153 on other side. Idk why they say they work better but the white ones with 54 411 work the best for me, just like the old subutex that where football shaped and white. They had a slit in the middle. I forget the imprint but I think they were the name brand ones, not generic, bc they quit making them a long time ago. They were white football shaped and had a slit in middle if u wanted to brake them in half. I wish they still made those ones.

Re: Jackie (# 24)

Just a head’s up for all you guys saying that the Mylan is coming back this month... they are not. I have spoken to Mylan 4 times in the last four weeks and there is currently no update on when the medication will be back. They are on long term backorder with no date of return. It’s awful, I know! Mylan is definitely my preferred brand! I tried the Rhodes brand and it made me feel extremely depressed, I hated them... I’m trying the Westward ones on Monday, I pray these are better for me.

What subutex says RP 8b? I never heard of them. I know the make with the orange footballs with a half moon on one side and the mylan 54 411 and then they make the tiny round ones which i refuse to take. I hate them but yah idk why ppl are saying the mylan 54 411 are on backorder because i get them every month. I asked for the mylans one time and the pharmacist said my insurance will only cover orange football ones because they're cheaper than the mylans which doesnt make sense bc if u pay outa pocket they use to be 5 dollars and now they're 6. They went up a dollar overnight but when u pay out of pocket for them u can ask for white/orange small ones and they only charge you 6 dollars so it doesn't make any sense when my pharmacist said u get orange ones bc white ones are more expensive.

Re: Tylor (# 30)

The RP’s are the Rhodes brand... it’s a fairly newer brand that came out this year. I tried it, wasn’t a fan but I’m used to the Mylan brand (M924 not 54-411, the 54-411 are Roxane brand and those are great I’ve recently found out)

Re: AWV304 (# 2)

I have been on the Mylan version for several years. All the sudden they try to give me Sun Mfg, and I got real sick. I heard they are an offshore Mfg and have been shut down a couple of times for bad conditions. Then they gave me Hi-Tech and I got really sick last night with stomach cramps, ect... I hope Mylan will be back soon. Only one that has no side effects for me. Someone told me to go to the hospital pharmacy and I may be able to get Mylans.

Re: Karen (# 32)

You gotta try the Roxane/Westward brand. I’ve been taking Mylan for years and they are on long term back order because of issues with their supplier. I tried the Rhodes and they were awful, then I just got the Roxane/Westward brand yesterday and they are AMAZING! Seriously, they’re even better than Mylan.

No they did not stop making the 54 411 white round subutex. I get them every month. if ur pharmacy says they're on back order or they quit making them, it is not true. Tell them to call the company bc i can get them filled any time i want. I get those and orange football shaped ones with half moons on front and 153 on back all the time. I like the white 54 411 better because they seem stronger.

I'm in Sacramento California and I have taken the roxane 54411 and brand for 5 years and have noticed the difference in quality. This is bulls***. What's the point? When they do s*** like this they are no better, actually worse, than the dope pushers cutting with bulls*** just to increases profits. Needs to not be individual companies. Thought laws were being put in place so they can't keep f***ing with us. This is how s*** gets real sporty...

Re: Ken lips from sac (# 35)

Check out the Hatch - Wexman Act of 1984. Basically allows generics to be a +/- 20% strength. I'm in Oakland area trying to get Purdue RP/b8 tablets. Should know by tomorrow. I've been getting screwed by CVS with Sun Pharma crap from India. Mylan is best for me but cannot ge5 them consistent. The Westward niw Hikma I ve had before but cannot get them either. Purdue is best. Supposed 8.6 mg of buprenorphine. Find out tomorrow. I pay out of pocket but willing to pay more for quality and consistency.
