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...

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. Email me {edited for privacy} ## I'm in need of a new pharmacy. The one I was going to quit carrying them. If anyone knows of any around wv or pa please let me know. ## I live in WV and go to PA to the doc. But I can't find a pharmacy in either state to fill a prescription for Buprenorphine 8mg tabs. Any info on possible pharmacies that carry these would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! ## I am having the same problem. Did.

WV pharmacy that fills a PA subutex prescription

I went to a doctor in PA that prescribed me subutex. I went to a few pharmacies in the area (Washington, Pa) but they only carried Suboxone. Does anyone know where I can get subutex filled in Washington, Pa or close to there? I live in Morgantown, Wv & would rather get them filled in this area if that's possible. I have a WV ID, but a PA. Subutex prescription. ## I have the same problem! Script written in Washington, PA but I have a WV ID. I live in Mon county, WV so the closer the better! I drove over 2 hours south last month for my medicine. ## Did you have any luck finding a pharmacy? I'm in the same situation, I live in WV and go to a pa Dr and I need a pharmacy asap! Please, any info would be greatly appreciated. In need where was you went to 2hrs south if you can say o...

subutex- wax squares

Not being able to afford a Dr.-a friend of mine sometimes gives me acouple of her subutex.(like suboxone).They come in a pack where you have to punch out each square..like gum.They are square,and see-through purple.The only markings are a line going down,and a line going across.Like this +, so you have 4 little squares.But today when she gave me some, they looked the same,except there was only ONE line down the middle.I don't know why.Is anyone familiar with this drug-and seen them with just the one line down the middle? I cant find an image of subutex wax squares anywhere on-line so far. Thank you. ## Are you sure they are Subutex? It isn't even listed as being available in this type of formulation in the U.S. It is actually only available as an injection, tablets and film shee...

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...

Subutex and pain

Good morning everyone. I'm taking Subutex I've been on it for about 6 months now. I'm 62 years old and I'm doing great on the Subutex except at my age I do have severe pain. I'm going to ask my doctor when I go back next month is there anything you can take for pain that will work with the Subutex? I don't mean Tylenol or Ibuprofen because it just doesn't work. Any suggestions you kind people. Thank you have a great day. Just hurting. ## I'm sorry, but there are no opiates that will work with Subutex. By its very nature, the Buprenorphine in it latches onto your opiate receptors, and takes a stronger hold than all other available opiates, that is one of the ways it helps prevent people from still abusing them, while undergoing treatment with it. However, ...

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...

Take subutex and suboxone together

I ran out of subutex last night - can I take suboxone today? ## Hi Ash, Based on my research, there are no drug interactions listed between Subutex and Suboxone. So with that being said, I wouldn't anticipate having any problems when switching between one or the other. Also, because Subutex contains the same active ingredient "Buprenorphine", taking the two meds together or within a short a time frame of one another would also be similar to just having an higher dose of Suboxone. Is your doctor also aware that you're taking both medications? ## Have only four 8 strips Suboxone to last until January 21st! I currently take 12 mgs day. Reason Im short? They were stolen and I can't turn the person in as he is family. I have no concrete proof. anyway, I've be on this ...

Subutex and Percocet

I only took two Subutex 8 milligrams. How long till I can take Oxycodone 15 mg? ## You will still need to wait at least 72 hours, before the Oxycodone will be effective, due to the Suboxone blocking it's affect, unless your doctor instructs you otherwise. 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## First of all, he said subutex, not suboxone. That being said, 16mg is quite a bit so I would wait at least 24 hours. You won't go into withdrawal as it doesn't contain the same naloxone that suboxone has. You might not feel it though as the subutex is still working. No need to take such...
