153 pill subutex

What the difference between Buprenorphine with Naloxone and Buprenorphine without Naloxone ## Hello, Cynthia! How are you? That is the difference. once contains the Naloxone to help prevent the abuse of other medications, while someone is being treated with it and the other doesn't. Naloxone isn't safe for everyone, particularly pregnant women, or someone who is allergic to it, so a different option has to be available for them. 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 help with? ## Can skmeone please help me bow do i take the subutex am i supposed to diss...

Generic Subutex/Buprenorphine - Which manufacturer do you prefer?

Hello All, I recently just got changed from suboxone to subutex due to a pretty bad allergic reaction to the naloxone in the suboxone. Basically my question for everyone is which generic do you guys prefer my pharmacist can order any kind for me so Im at the moment just got the Roxanne ones 8mg they are white round tablets. This is my first day using and am already noticing my migraines are starting to subside not fully but starting too. So yeah if anyone has any suggestions please let me know all the ups and downs that you guys have been experiencing thanks! Good luck to one and all! D ## I may not have personal experience with either of these generics, but I did want to go ahead and link you to a couple other threads here with more information on other Subutex reviews: Discuss/can-sub...

NEED TO FIND A PHARMACY THAT FILLS SUBUTEX ASAP!!!

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 ...

Subutex/opiate question

I am on day 10 of a Subutex detox and I still feel kind of crappy and my head is really cloudy. I have to go for a job interview and I was wondering if anyone knew what would happen if I took an opiate to feel better for the interview would it affect my sub detox and set me back. ## No, it’ll make u feel a lot better. But it won’t hurt the detox. I detoxed once off of subutex using lortabs . It eases the narly w/d . Helps u get much need rest too. Pain meds. Aren’t crap to detox from in my opinion! I’ll take pain meds detox any dang day over sub w:/d you’re on the 10 where u seem to be in a still feel like craaaapp mode. You’ll linger there for another 2-3 weeks then you’ll start feeling better. But honestly you’ll have w/d periodically fo...

Subutex question for someone that really really really knows!

Looooong read. I warn you now :) Ok. PLEASE don't explain how it works or what it does. Save yourself the time. I am extremely familiar with how it works and what it does. But I have a question that's been on my mind for many moons, forever actually (10 plus years) and I can't seem to get a straight answer to it no matter how many times I ask it and where I ask it. I am asking it here for the first time. Just always get the usual, familiar rhetoric explaining to me how it works and where it binds and what it does, blah blah blah, but no one ever can explain the "why" behind all this wonderful science! And at the end have one first hand case PROVING what I'm questioning to be true. Ok so follow. So if buprenorphine is stronger than and has a higher affinity than l...

Subutex Wax Squares Images

I would like to see some images of the subutex 'wax square' tablets (clear purple in color). I want to see the markings... if some have just the one line down the middle versus the line down AND across. ( + ) ## Unfortunately, after trying several searches I haven't been able to locate a match in any of the U.S. prescription drug databases, nor any related possibilities on google. If you are certain that this is Subutex, then it's very likely that these pills could either be manufactured outside of the U.S. or that it is a fake (not in the sense that they don't contain the said ingredients or work as intended, but the pills could be manufactured from some unknown company). Until I find a square purple pill online that is regarded as being Subutex, I have yet to think...

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.

orange subutex

You people that are prescribed the subutex that you were asking the chat board questions about: If you are not a pregnant or breastfeeding woman as of July 1st 2015 then you will be prescribed suboxone or something else but never just plain buprenorphine. As far as the orange Halfmoon generic subutex, you take them the same way that you would take any other kind of subutex / suboxone; they are sublingual. ## What state are you referring to in the above comment? I'm a receptionist at a recovery clinic in PA we have not discontinued prescribing subutex. I have faxed or called in a total of 37 prescriptions this week alone. I think people come on the internet asking about different brands of drugs (not just buprenorphine) to see how other patients have reacted to the brand. Pharmacists...
