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...

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...

buprenorphine 8mg sub rox

Normally my subutex I thought was really tiny, round white. This time it's a larger tablet white round with RP on one side b 8 on other. I looked at an old bottle it said ROX after sub Today's says RHO after sub. Both saying Buprenorphine. Is this Subutex like I'm suppose to be getting? I use to get the strips which I much prefer because they're easier to cut up and take smaller mgs if I choose. But I have no insurance and the price difference is outrages. Thank you

Quidict Medicine

My husband is an addict of quidict.....he starting take this medicine for drug treatment.....He stopped taking the drug but he is now an addict of quidict... ## Quidict is a very good med for drug addiction problem. U can't overdose it. U can easily taper off it without any prob. I'm pretty much sure that if he stops taking it. Then he will start taking the drug. Under medical supervision it is a Super medicine. Only need to take a pill in a day. So don't ask him to stop quidict. ## Actually that part is incorrect, you can overdose on it, just as you can on any other medication, if you take too much of it. It contains the active ingredients Buprenorphine and Naloxone, the Buprenorphine is a very potent narcotic, so someone certain could overdose on it. And Bharti, how long h...

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...

Sun Pharma 460's Buprenorphine Hell

I see this Medschat group to be for support and information based on experience(s). So I will share mine regarding this horrible medicine with 460 imprinted on a round chalky white tablet. To say I had bad side effects is kind. Aside from the burning under the tongue, subsequent nausea, fatigue, depression, cravings, poor sleep, outbursts, after taste that took forever to go away, I really am a person that seriously likes to give something a chance. And this medicine for me was an actual horror of 28 days until I could get my Westward again. It made me dose off and worst for me was the cravings. I felt so awful all the time on the Sun Bupes I would start thinking about my old methods of feeling better. Not good. Suboxone and Subutex saved my life. After 40 years off and on finally I fee...

Hexagon orange pill with n8 one side and an M inside a box

Wondering what kind of pill this is? It has an M inside a box on one side and N8 on the other side. It's also orange and hexagon-shaped. ## Hello Barry, I hope you are doing well. I have found some information on your pill. The imprint of the M inside of a box is the mark of the company Mallinckrodt. I was able to find the manufacturers website and fortunately they have pictures of all of their generic medicines. The only pill that matches your description is Buprenorphine and Naloxone Sublingual Tablets. It looks like the marking is actually 8N, easily read upside down as N8. According to the manufacturer this medicine contains the active ingredients Buprenorphine (8mg) and Naloxone (2mg). The drug is used to treat opiate dependency. Here is a link to the manufacturers website wher...

Is there a difference between 54 411 tablets and the orange half moon subutex? My son seems to think the 54 411 makes him sick. Is there any ingredient difference? ## The 54 411 pill made by Roxane Labs (with a National Drug Code of 00054-0177), contains the following set of inactive ingredients: citric acid anhydrous, corn starch, crospovidone, lactose monohydrate, magnesium stearate, mannitol, povidone, and sodium citrate The orange half moon 153 subutex pill made by Actavis (with a National Drug Code of 0228-3153) contains: anhydrous citric acid, crospovidone, fd & c yellow no. 6, lactose monohydrate, magnesium stearate, mannitol, corn starch, povidones, and trisodium citrate dihydrate I know some of us are more sensitive than others to various inert ingredients (such as dye'...

Did They Stop Making The Roxane 54 411 Buprenorphine?

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 15...

Can Doctors in TN prescribe buprenorphine/Subutex for pain?

I need to find a doctor to prescribe subutex for pain. Can Doctors in TN prescribe it for pain? If so, what doctors in middle TN do prescribe it for pain? I was on pain pills for years. They don't help any more. Only subutex does. Please help. I'm desperate. ## Hello, Robin! How are you? Yes, any doctor can prescribe it for pain. However, since it is a controlled substance, if you require it on a long-term ongoing basis for the treatment of chronic pain, you'll most likely need to see a pain management specialist. The FDA classifies this medication as 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. But you'll have to set up an appointment with a doctor, withou...
