Buprenorphine 153

Joel Says:

These are horrible. I have been taking these for about 3 weeks now. Along with the reduction in potentcy I am experiencing headaches. I was put on these at my request after 2 major abdominal surgeries after my bowel ruptured in 3 places. After being on Fentanyl and dilauded for 6 months in the Hospital and then 3 months after being released. After being on such strong opiates from the surgeries, I discussed this with my Doctor and we.agreed on Buprenorphine. Since this switch to the new oblong orange 153 pills I have to say, it is a noticeable difference and increased daily headaches.

Hi Joel,

Sorry to hear about your experience with the new Buprenorphine tablet. I've actually seen a few other posts on this site from patients who also agreed that this orange tablet wasn't as potent as the Buprenorphine they were taking before. As to the headaches, part of me wonders if this has anything to do with a change of inactive ingredients (binders/fillers) that make up the tablet's composition... They're often overlooked, but I have my suspicions that they play a larger role in drug efficacy and the manifestation of certain symptoms. Not to mention, NIH.gov also lists headaches as a general side effect of Buprenorphine, and goes on to note that you should contact your doctor in the event that they are severe or do not go away on their own.

I hope this info helps and wish you good luck on finding something that works without all the extra "luggage" of side effects.

I seem to be the only one that prefers the Orange tablets. I am out of town due to family emergency, ran out of my suboxone and instead of my Orange tablets I was given white ones with the letter M and under that 924. I am freaking out. The Orange ones I am to resolve under my tongue and these white there are no instructions and I did what I always do and the taste is disgusting. The Orange ones are buprenorphin, but the white ones are buprenorphine (e on the end). Does anyone know what the difference is between the 2?

Headaches are from taking to much subutex/suboxone. They will go away after a few days if u stay under a total of 24mgs in 24 hrs assuming u r as opiate tolerant as u stated. Max dose is 1-8mg every 8 hrs. Headaches will subside after about a week as ur body adjusts. Good luck from swim on long term as they are just as addictive as any Schedule 2 opiate & withdrawal lasts 3-4 weeks but is milder than full blown opiates.
