Roxane Subutex (westward/hikma)

So for a couple years now my Roxane/westward/hikma pills have been super inconsistent or just flat out felt like 2mgs instead of 8mgs. Sometimes they work sometimes they do almost nothing. It started in about the end of 2015. I think i was taking them before 2015 but never looked at the brand until i started having withdrawals out of nowhere. It was like a completely different med. So for almost 2 years i have been having issues. I'm fed up and i have changed brands but always only had partial fills and back to the roxane/westward/hikma brand. Anyone else notice any differences in this brand? ## Hello, This definitely sounds like a problem! Every generic is supposed to stay within an error window of 20% of the brand name drug so going through withdraws is absolutely a problem. Just ...

Subutex 153 half moon orange pills

I want to start taking subutex 153 orange half moon shape pill in morning when I wake up. I took my last dose of opiates around 8 pm. Will I go into withdrawal? I am very scared that I will. I have done it before with suboxone and thought I was dying and it's something I never want to experience ever again. ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? Unless your doctor has instructed you otherwise, you need to be in full withdrawal, before you take Suboxone, otherwise it may throw you into dangerous precipitated withdrawals, again. The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can he...

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 its 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. Thanks! ## @post #1, Reviews from the following discussion thread do "suggest" that it works better than the white ones as well as the strips: Discuss/orange-subutex-153-half-moon-286803.htm @post #2, No, these one's are not time-released... they are sublingual though. @post #3, Navigating google, I wasn't able to locate any im...

taking subutex and percocet together

My doctor just put me on subutex along with percocet. I've been on percocet for yrs for severe and chronic migraines. He told me to take the subutex and if it doesn't work to take a percocet. I usually take 15 mg percocet at a time. I've read some stuff online that worries me. Some people say if you take percs with subutex you'll go into withdrawals. I went through severe withdrawals with fioricet months ago and I don't want to go through that hell again. I took my first subutex about an hour ago and I still have a migraine so I want to take a perc now. Can I do that or will I get sick? ## I have been taking subutex for the last month or so. about 2 weeks ago i had a terrible migraine, so I took a 10mg percocet. I went into full withdrawal. Throwing up constantly, na...

Round White Pill Cherry Flavored No Imprint Said Its Subutex 8 Mg Anyone Seen These

Very trustworthy friend said 8mg subutex white round cherry flavored anyone heard of this? ## No, I just double checked and even the sublingual tablets, both the name brand Subutex and the generic all have markings on them, as required by law in the U.S. This law was put into place by the FDA many years ago for several different reasons. One is that if there is a problem with a certain medication, such as its found to be tainted with something, or to not contain any of the active ingredient, there needed to be some way to trace it back to the manufacturer that made it. And the other issue is that if someone is found unconscious with an unlabeled bottle of pills beside them, emergency personnel need a way to discover what the pills are, so they can provide proper treatment. Thus, prescri...

orange pill 153 half moon is subutex

They are subutex. I went to Actavis' website and searched their products. Here is the link to the product page where you can find the orange oval 153 half moon pill: actavis.com/products/key-products/product-search Hope this helps and is proof instead of he said she said. ## Hello Mindy, Unfortunately your link doesn't actually take us to a page that has any direct information regarding the buprenorphine pill you are talking about. I have always found Actavis/Teva to have the most complicated website to navigate and thus I would rather just post information regarding this pill from the NIH and FDA directly. So below is all of the info I have grabbed from the NIH website directly regarding this pill. Clicking on the NDC link provided below will take you to a page with more inform...

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...
