How Can I Get Prescribed Subutex Instead Of Suboxone

i get sick everytime i take my dose of suboxone. I throw up everytime. but my doctor will not switch me to the subutex even though it is in my charts that i have yaken the subutex and never got nausiated. what do i need to say or do to get my doctor to understand and switch me? i also have severe intestinal problems that get aggravated with the suboxone, what can i do. i do not want to quit treatment but i cant keep throwing up everyday all day. please someone help me. ## hi cherie, i just read your post and you have me thinking...i have taken suboxone for a while now & have always been relatively ok with it, but for some reason the last month to 2 months, i have been experiencing weird side affects that sound exactly like what you are talking about...i am having increasing bouts of...

Meijer pharmacy subutex 54 411 availability

Does meijer pharmacy carry 54-411 subutex or M 9-24? Walmart was out of 54-411 and I cant take the M 9-24 version. The pharmacy wouldn't tell me. ## Yes you can, you just don't want to. This is a perfect example of why there are so many rules and laws and restrictions because people abuse, break the rules, and don't do what they're supposed to. It doesn't matter what a Subutex looks like. Period. They all do the same thing unless you are administering your medication intravenously, in which case eventually you will get caught and you will lose your doctor. Most abusers want the 54s. It's just like when I see people say they're allergic to orange ones and small ones, LMFAO. They're literally the same thing, same mlg, same ingredient, just look different. I...

I have been on subutex for 9 months now. But i have a very big problem next month k mart pharmacy will no longer carry subutex. I live in the tri cities in tn. I have called about 35 pharmacies around they either do not take new people getting subutex or do not carry it at all. I have no insurance i found 1 that cost 340 which is way more than the 215 i paid at k mart. Also some pharmacies I know only carry the small ones which to me do not work as good as the bigger ones. Huge difference i go back the 8th next month so if there is anyone that knows of a good pharmacy in my area your help would be greatly appreciated ## Hello, Scott! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're having. However, if you've called the pharmacies, then you've likely not actually received ...

orange subutex 153

I refilled my monthly subutex Tuesday and received orange oblong tablets inscribed 153. My pharmacy has carried 54/111 over three years.

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 it's 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.

Orange vs white subutex

What is the difference between single component orange and white subutex? ## I'm pretty sure the orange is the film, and the subutex is pill form. Same thing. There is also Zubsolve another pill form, minty taste. Does the same thing. Opioid treatment ## Are the ones you're asking about both tablets? Are there any markings on them? From the limited information in your post, I assume they have just been manufactured by different companies, but that may not be true, depending on your answers to the other questions I asked. The FDA warns that Subutex carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. ## You are entirely wrong! Why do people give advice about things that they know nothing about? Ther...

pharmacies that will fill my subutex in wv

Pharmacies in WV that will fill my subutex that aren't to pricey and they have to be accepting new clients. ## Good luck, most people are having to drive to Pa or DC to fill their prescriptions.

need a pharmacy in waynesburg pa that fills subutex

I just got a script for subtext today, I’m from WV but was wondering if there was anywhere in Waynesburg that would fill my script for me? Also I am prego. Which I did go to a place in Washington where my appointment was but they wanted $392 for 56 of them I thought that was a little bit ridiculous. ## They should be willing to fill it, as long as it was written in PA, though in some cases, your being from out of state might be a problem, since it is a controlled substance. Subutex does contain Buprenorphine, which is an opiate most commonly used to treat drug addiction. Unfortunately, the $392 price is about average in most of the U.S. Have you checked with any pharmacies near you? ## Hi my name is Carlie and I go to a Subutex clinic in Bridgeville pa which is WBK I am in no way ...

Subutex Side Effects

Why was I ok after days 1 thru 8, but by day 9 and 10 my legs hurt, I cant sleep and I'm having weird thoughts? ## All medications carry the risk of causing side effects and, in most cases, it can take awhile for all of them to start affecting you and it could take 4 to 5 weeks to go away, once your body gets used to the medication. Other side effects, as reported by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, and constipation. If they become severe, or don't go away, you should consult your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi. I've been on 8mg of subutex daily for about 2-3 weeks. I've started feeling more drowsy the longer I've been on it. I had an opioid addiction prior to having been prescribed buprenorphine. What should I do? I ...

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 better than strips

Yes, they are Subutex 153 half moon and the are shaped like a surf board. They work way better then Suboxone strips. People keep saying they cut the strips into millions of pieces, if that is the case you don't need them in the first place. This new one orange Subutex 153 half moon surf board shape ones last way longer, and work great (oh my god they work so great!) I recommend them to anyone using the white ones or the strips, they both suck compared to the new ones. Take it of leave it but it's the truth. If you take just a half it will last you two days...unreal. ## For these subutex do they taste disgusting like the strips. As of May 1st our physician decided not to do subutex anymore. Luckily I just had my baby I am worried about breastfeeding. An hate the taste of Suboxone...

white pill with 54 411

This is generic subutex, not suboxone, which means that it contains only buprenorphine. Suboxone has naloxone as well to discourage patients from injecting the pill. The exclusive patent rights for the drug expired in Oct. of '09 ## Thank you for providing this information, that's what many places are identifying it as, 8mgs of Buprenorphine, the generic for Subutex, but it is new and not listed in any of the databases, yet. Along with treating narcotic addiction, it can also be used to treat cases of severe, chronic pain. ## I love this drug. I'm off oxy now for 10 months and I have subs to thank for it ! I miss the euphoric feeling but I also don't miss spending 350 a day. God bless subutex ! ## I was a heroin addict for two years. Smoking 1 to 2 grams a day. I tried t...

White Round Pill 54 411 how to take

How do u take a subutex? Is it the same as taking as taking a suboxone? ## This is an 8mg sublingual tablet and yes, they are used in very similar ways to treat the same things, except Subutex eliminates the Naloxone that can throw someone into withdrawals from taking it too soon. Learn more Subutex details here. Since it is also an opiate narcotic, it does have the potential to be habit forming and it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Are there any other questions or comments? Does anyone else have any advice to add? ## Hi katiy, I haven't found any prescribing information, but a recent review from another Subutex user was stating that "the pamphlet says to just let the tablet dissolve under your tongue, and to not swallow the table...

Subutex and Withdrawals

You don't have to be in withdrawal to take subutex. Been on it for 6 years. I always read this garbage from people that don't have a damn clue, passing on info they are just regurgitating. ## Hello, tmoney! How are you? That is correct and thank you for posting. Sometimes, people may feel minor withdrawal symptoms, because Buprenorphine tends to be stronger in gripping onto the opiate receptors, so it kicks out other stuff someone may have taken. But, if doesn't cause the dangerous precipitated withdrawals, in most cases, that people can experience if they take Suboxone too soon, due to the Naloxone that's in it. The FDA classifies this medication as being a narcotic that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may c...

Is orange Subutex available?

Do they make an orange Subutex? Is that available? ## I just got my script filled this month for subutex. I used to get the white tablet with an arrow and 8 on each side. Today I got 8mg Orange oblonged shaped with 153 and a moon on it. They are pretty big compared to what I was getting. Same thing except they just don't dissolve as quickly and have a different taste. So apparently they do make orange ones, just found out today. ## Just for added confirmation - yes, it is true that they do make an orange oblong/oval generic 8mg Subutex (Buprenorphine hydrochloride) sublingual tablet with 153 on one side and the Actavis' half moon logo on the other. This tablet also contains the following set of inactive ingredients (binders/fillers), which may be different than what you might...

subutex / suboxone

Surely I'm not the only person reading in shock and disbelief. How is it that so many people are unaware of the basic facts and information regarding bup. I am reading in horror that woman are trying to detox during pregnancy. That is the worst option - it is risking both lives. I also read a question regarding the effectiveness of mixing bup with methadone. Anyone using these meds should know it causes withdrawals, that's the point of bup. I feel lucky to have drug treatment services that are free but able to stand along what is provided to private patients. It's horrible to think of pregnant woman on bup having to come on here to ask for info and not telling their dr in fear of judgement or welfare. What is up with a woman thinking its an option to detox at five mnths preg...
