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.

Re: Charlene (# 138)

Himka charlene really?? You are still taking those? They are no where comparable to rhodes. People who switch from the 54 411 himkas to rhodes end up getting sick or zombie like as they are not used to such a strong and effective generic so they need to take a half rhodes compared to a full himka. The 54 411s were amazing when roxanne pharma was manufacturing them but they have not for a long long while. I think himka and think blaah bad news bears. Its rank:

1. Rhodes and Teva RP B8 and b799. The teva formulation is still the Barr Pharma bup formula. Teva is smart and has kept most of Barr Pharma products formulations as they are made great. This includes the Soma. Soma is currently being completely switched from activas elizabeth / mayne/ old watson formulation to being just dispensed by Teva and this switch has caused a huge shortage on somas currently going on. The DAN 5513 SOMA tablets should be back around May 31st or can be short date ordered by willing pharmacist but prior was dispensed by activas elizabeth / mayne pharma but now will show dispensed by Teva Pharma. I unfortunately had to get Jubliant Cadista Pharma somas this month anyways my point is teva is smart and has kept the formulations of medicine from barr, watson etc when they purchased out activas and watson so these two generics are identical and identical to brand name subutex. Anyways:

1. Brand Name Subutex B 8.
2. Rhodes- RP B8
3. Teva b799-barr pharma dispensed by Teva but barr formulation
4. Mylan M924- which is strange as all mylan products imo suck but not their bup formula
5. Hi Tech 8 (logo) arrow- smaller tablet
6. Himka- formely westward (semi decent tablet prior) then westward bought out by himka unfortunately- 54 411 chalky fall apart like crappy tablets that have become weak with the cover of imprint of the old good roxane 54 411s himka has ruined this imprint (ALL YOU NEED DO IS LOOK AT A PICTURE OF THE 54 411 TABLETS WHEN ROXANE MADE THEM COMPARED TO HOW THEY ARE NOW AND LOOK AT A PICTURE OF HIMKAS) this will show you how greatly this generic has fallen in himkas hands. the roxanes were hard pressed, shinny, not chalky, debossed and pushed out whereas westward and himkas are flat not debossed and pushed outwards like the old roxane ones and def are not shinny at all. just compare images to roxane 54 411 to an image of the current dispensed 54 411 by himka. the image comparison will show u all u need know
7. Activas- orange half moon (logo) 153
8. Sun pharma- 460 - these tablets have only received negative feedback. they burn the mouth are very cheap and are very weak

Rhodes and Teva are identical to brand and eachother with the same active and inactive ingredients making them the most potent bup tablets on the USA market today other than brand name which is not allowed in the states just like the suboxone tablets that were the stop sign shaped ones but these tablets are still made and dispensed in other countries (brand name subutex- b8, brand name suboxone tablets orange stop signs). suboxone films also now have two generics by amneal and teva.

Hope soma shortage is over soon and hope everyone realizes that the 54 411 are ruined and its psychological mentality keeping people on them and taking a full potent rhodes tablet when only have is needed as half of a rhodes is easily comparable to one if not two full 54 411 tablets. God bless love you all! Charlene, u must know this now, just compare images of roxane bup, westward bup, and himka bup. Since roxane they have slowly gotten more flat and less debossed and slowly but surely more chalky blaah.

Re: Brigid Coyne (# 132)

check out my forum thread called Rhodes buprenorphine vs 54 411. it has over 600 replies and we are like a family there and there is very wonderful feedback by all users of all generics. Rhodes and TEVA are very potent so if u make the switch to one of these generics keep this in mind and take only half of what you would normally take of all other generics of they may be a first experience of being floored.

Re: Charlene (# 138)

I really don't like any bup or subs. They're supposed to be the great cure & easy to come off... No way. Not only does it stop any pain relief, I found it so depressing, shocking stuff to come off. Even 1mg was too much. Good luck with it.

Re: Goozer (# 141)

Hello, goozer... I have been following you thread for a very long time..I havnt been taking hikma brand because I want to..its because after you tought me to seek out the best generics out there.the king of subs RHODES. ..I found a mom n pop pharmacy that I got them to order for me the Rhodes and I guess after about 6 months I called in my refill..they said they havnt been able to get them in..so I stretched out my script waiting a few more days until there next delivery, I called, nope not yet .by this time I'm in panic mode calling and driving around just like before..nobody has them..so for my Last 3 refill I have had hikma, I mean it could a better worse if ya know what I mean...I'm going to do some more leg work because I'm going crazy when I read some of the other people are able to get the Rhodes, my jealous streak comes out..I don't know why or what it is. ?maybe living in southwest Florida to were it's more older people live..but some mom n pop shops will say they don't even carry buprenorphine products on the shelf if they don't have a good clientele I guess it's just sits on the shelf until let's say me comes back in for a refill..I have Cvs, Walgreens, Walmart chain store and they have them in. Walgreens only carries the orange half moon, I took a chance to jump into cvs and at least the had hikma brand, my very first time getting a script filled with them before. So now just like in the beginning I'm chasing my buprenorphine product Rhodes the best. Once more..yep its crazy I actually read a post someone said they heard heard of a shortage for hikma, and Rhodes, now at least I'm able to get my hands on hikma but before I even have to think about taking any other buprenorphine product. Other than these two. I'd rather go back to my pill of choice

Re: Goozer (# 141)

Hi again, I was thinking just now after I wrote you, about the Rhodes, and myself all of a sudden I get them for 6 months or so and bam, I can't get them. Now Rhodes came out Oct 2017, and since I have been on treatment since 2005, as far as Walgreens goes for example... back in the day because I live right down the road from them I'd always get my subutex from them, and then out of the blue I'd be handed a different new generic that would come out. Now Walgreens has had the same nasty generic orange half moon FOREVER... I wonder when I will see them hand out Rhodes, they could make my day..seriously..on top of it. Who knows what they pay for the orange, but I do know that the Rhodes are very affordable for the pharmacies to pay for, and their goals seem to buy cheap...well why not Rhodes then..ya know, just sayin...

Re: Charlene (# 145)

Hey Charlene! Ya it is very unfortunate that Rhodes is currently unavailable. I was quite upset myself this past month about it. Those generics your getting is activas..blah. orange subutex just doesn't seem right to me but whatever. Stick to himka, Mylan, or teva OG. Rhodes is out of stock and on back order. Purdue must have not realized how popular and high of a demand their formulation of subutex would have been. I called it in 2017 that is why I had my post up back then. I wish they would have made more as demand needed. It is possible to get them still if your pharmacist is willing to short date order them. This means the pharmacy calls their wholesaler or purdue directly to order some that are left overs or going to expire within the next year. Very very few pharmacist will ever do this and it is very expensive. I have also ran into the same issue this last few months with my activas soma the dan 5531s. The Rhodes should be available around the beginning or end of August without short date ordering them in which no pharmacist will likely do and if so props for getting them to do so. I could have for my soma but at a dollar a pop per each and expired ones. Anyways I'm sorry to us all Rhodes will not he around until August and I'm happy I saved me a good amount of the Rhodes generics but upset to have to get himkas this past month but they actually look like the old Roxane formulation the way they look. God bless u all and stay away from anything that isn't the himkas Mylan or OG Teva everything else is bad news bears. I hope u all good health and good days. Rhodes will be back pursue underestimated or planned for a short on us but August could not come sooner right.

Re: Roxanne56 (# 10)

I know this is an old post but i get 5411 from cvs and it says hikma now and I read they bought out Roxanne, which makes me wonder if in fact they are the same even though they have the same imprint on them. I also read that teva is actavis now, but when picking up at walgreens the label still says actavis on the bottle, all so confusing. I am wondering if they are selling old meds! Also Publix said they have teva and they are orange and I went to their webpage (teva) and they look just like actavis now. They use the sam supplier publix said as walgreens but they say they are teva! At least that whats in the computer, haven't picked up from Publix yet! They are charging half the price of Walgreens as well for same meds! I have only tried those 2 brands. I feel the Rooxane or Hikma (5411) gives me more anxiety, but then again I was having some anxious moments at that time, so I traded them with someone for actavis and I didnt feel as anxious, but my situation causing the anxiety had improved as well.
