Critical Facts About Subutex and Subuxone

  • Subutex & Suboxone contain the active ingredient of buprenorphine hydrochloride.
  • Subutex & Suboxone are medications used for the treatment of opiate addiction or opiate dependence.
  • Suboxone contains a second ingredient Naloxone which is used to prevent abuse.
  • Suboxone will be chosen by doctors over Subutex because it is less likely to be abused.

 

Why Were Subutex and Subuxone Both Approved For Opiate Dependence?

This is a common question. Subutex was the first version of the buprenorphine based treatment for opiate dependence. Suboxone came later and with an additional drug to prevent abuse. It is unlikely you will ever be prescribed Subutex (Buprenorphine without Naloxone).

Subutex is different than Methadone also as Methadone treatment usually requires you to receive medicine daily at a clinic. Subutex allows you to take your medicine home!

Suboxone Copay Card & Other Buprenorphine Manufacturer Savings Plans – Through 2015!

Save $75″ & “Suboxone Copay Cards” – Status Through 2015

The Suboxone prescription savings cards and coupons are not as easy to find late in 2014. I regularly scour the internet for the latest and greatest manufacturer savings plans. At first I had no luck in finding a Suboxone deal, but before finishing the article I found one – scroll on down if that is what you want.

I do have another sweet idea though that you may want to read about first.

Prescription Copay Cards – Non-Existent in October of 2014

But do not despair there ARE options for you to save money on the expensive wonder drug! There are variants similar to Suboxone that DO offer very good Pharmacy Cards, and Free Prescriptions.

Suboxone Copay Cards Hard To Find In 2014?

I believe that the recent approval of Suboxone generic is forcing companies to tighten margins due to new competition for Suboxone, Buprenorphine, Subutex and Butrans. With generic available the pharmaceuticals are going to make less money because they will likely need to reduce prices.

How To Save Money on drugs like Suboxone!
Save $200 on Copay vs Suboxone

Alternative to Suboxone with better savings at Butrans.com

 

There are medications that are very much like Suboxone.

Suboxone has an active ingredient of Buprenorphine and Naloxone. The Buprenorphine is what kills your withdrawal symptoms, the Naloxone is to keep you from abusing opiates it takes the “high” away.

I’ll tell you about the drugs I know of — that contain Buprenorphine and whether they might be a “fair” replacement option for Suboxone.

I’ll list them in order of best savings first.

#1 Suboxone Substitute - $0 Copay Two Months – $200 Savings

B E S T  S A V I N G S  P R O G R A M  for Buprenorphine based drugs.

I personally have experience with Butrans Transdermal System. Butrans is a patch that you wear for an entire week, which is really convenient. The patch releases Buprenorphine into your blood-stream via contact slowly and consistently for a full week. Pretty cool, huh?

In my opinion the patch started wearing off before a week, but it wasn’t too bad. Also sometimes they don’t like to stick on after you take a shower, but overall it works and there are ways to get the patch to re-stick.

Why is the Butrans Patient Assistance Deal Better than any of the Suboxone Copay Cards?

  • The Pharmacy Card card covers the entire cost of the medication.
  • The Card can be used for two script fills, or two months.
  • The Copay Card is worth a total of $200, or $100 each month.

The possible negative…

Butrans Transdermal System doesn’t have Naloxone in it.

The Naloxone is used to keep people from abusing the Buprenorphine or other opiates. So your doctor may not approve the switch, unless you let them know that the cost is a serious burden and you could not afford medication otherwise.

Many doctors prefer patch delivery because daily dose medications are more abused, and the process of taking a pill every day can contribute to psychological dependence. There is something to be said for waking up and feeling good, not having to take a pill or strip.

Some technical info and legal info from the manufacturer website…

Manufacturer Legal & Technical Info

Butrans® (buprenorphine) Transdermal System is indicated for the management of pain severe enough to require daily, around-the-clock, long-term opioid treatment and for which alternative treatment options are inadequate.

WARNING: ADDICTION, ABUSE and MISUSE; LIFE-THREATENING RESPIRATORY DEPRESSION; ACCIDENTAL EXPOSURE; and NEONATAL OPIOID WITHDRAWAL SYNDROME

The patch is the BEST deal out there though if your doc can get over the Naloxone not being there it will save you a bundle of money!

 

Guess What? – The Suboxone Copay Card IS Still Available!

I did not see it earlier today, but I checked again and it is there! It is only $50 but better than nothing.

Save on SUBOXONE Film

Save every month on SUBOXONE Film

The instructions are pretty much the same. Get a script from your doctor and print your savings card. This deal is good until the end of 2014 so you have three months left. There is a limit of one prescription per month, so it pays $50 monthly which is pretty sweet (for people with insurance).

Buying Suboxone, Naloxone, Buprenorphine – Best Places To Buy Cheap

I have learned the hard way that CVS and Walgreens is not the way to go for saving money AND lately they have had the most POOR customer service I have seen in my life.

 

Walgreens Treats Customers Like Criminals or Drug Dealers

If you have had to get a controlled substance filled by Walgreens you know the racket. They scan your script, take your license, run you through a criminal database, and then five minutes later they tell you they are out!  This makes me so angry I yell at the pharmacist every time I leave and I will NEVER EVER go to Walgreens again.

I wrote a letter to Wagreens corporate, and they never bothered to contact me. I have been a long (many year) customer with lots of prescriptions.

I will turn as many people from Nazi Walgreens as possible.

CVS Sucks – The Website – HaHa CVS I hope you go bankrupt.

The Place To Buy Buprenorphine or Suboxone Without Being Treated Like A Criminal & Saving Money!

You should use online pharmacies, they will put the Nazi pharmacies out of business. Both CVS and Walgreens are having financial difficulties and their stocks are getting hammered. Why? Because everyone hates them, at least everyone in Florida does.

Online Pharmacies With Buprenorphine for good prices

Savings Tips

  • Where’s the Generic?: Looking for Suboxone sublingual tablets? The brand-name version has been discontinued, but generic buprenorphine/naloxone is still available. Learn more
  • Insurance Coverage: Many major insurance plans no longer cover brand-name Suboxone film as of 2014. Learn more
  • Manufacturer Coupon: Save up to $50 per month on Suboxone film. Learn more
  • Coupon Notice: This drug is a controlled substance. Please be aware that some pharmacies may not honor coupons for controlled substances.

Florida CVS & Florida Walgreens Are The LEAST Customer Focused Businesses Around

They deserve to go out of business. Avoid them like the plague, they do not deserve you. Their pharmacists are arrogant and think they know more than your doctor. They will LIE to you saying they are OUT when they don’t feel like filling your script and I have proof of this and have looked at taking legal action against them but every lawyer I talk to says it would be a waste to fight unless I have a seizure due to not getting the Klonopin– which COULD happen. I will have seizures without Klonopin to control them and will SUE both Red Pharmacies butts off for millions if I get the chance.

Quitting Suboxone or Buprenorphine on your own – Why is it so hard?

Why is Quitting Buprenorphine, Suboxone or other opiates so hard?

Voluntary control – Decision to take medicine

The initial decision to take a medicine or drug is considered voluntary control.

Once you start taking an addictive or dependent drug for a period of time and your body gets used to being under that influence, you are non longer under voluntary control. Your control is seriously compromised because you suffer major pain or uncomfortable feelings when you don’t take the Buprenorphine.

 

It can become very expensive to be addicted to Buprenorphine

Eventually the decision to take Suboxone was voluntary, but it becomes more and more important to the point that much of your day can go into planning on how to obtain the medications. So you need to find ways to save money on the purchases.

brain_thought

Brain Changes After Addiction – Long Term or Longer

Opiate addiction can impair the mechanism by which information from certain areas of the brain—handle judgment or caution. The brain will satisfy the need for opiates like it does for the need when hungry or thirsty.

Brain imaging studies of addicts show physical changes in parts of the brain related to judgment, decision making and even learning or memory. So the dependence can be very destructive.

 

If You Still Feel You Need for Buprenorphine, You can find many ways to save money on the purchase here. See the side bar.

Buprenex, Buprenorphine Started As Schedule V Narcotic in USA, 1985

Buprenorphine Drug Scheduling Timeline

Buprenorphine was first marketed in America in 1985, it was then scheduled by the FDA as a Schedule V narcotic. The only available product in the United States at that time was a very low-dose formulation intended for injection.

It was sold under the brand name Buprenex®. The FDA said that diversion, abuse & trafficking was occurring in Europe and other parts of the world. Considering the strength of Buprenorphine, it doesn’t surprise me that it was misused and/or trafficked.

Anyone who has attempted to stop taking Buprenorphine (aka Suboxone) knows how difficult it can be, sometimes more difficult than quitting other addictive opiates. If you are trying to taper from an addictive opiate or suboxone, you can check out the suboxone taper calculator on this site, or check out the new one on http://warm-turkey.com/HalfLife

DEA Scheduling of Buprenophine

 

Subutex and Suboxone were approved by the FDA in 2002 as schedule III Narcotic

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved two buprenorphine products (Suboxone® and Subutex®) for the treatment of opioid addiction.

 

Both products are high dose (2 mg and 8 mg) sublingual (under the
tongue) tablets:

  • Subutex® is a single entity buprenorphine product
  • Suboxone® is a combination product with buprenorphine and naloxone in a 4:1 ratio, respectively.

 

DEA Places Burprenorphine Products In Schedule III in 2002

The DEA placed buprenorphine and all products containing buprenorphine into schedule III in 2002. Since 2003, diversion, trafficking and abuse of buprenorphine have become more common in the United States.

 

FDA Approves Extended Release Buprenorphine Product - Butrans® in 2010

In June 2010, FDA approved an extended release transdermal film containing buprenorphine (Butrans®) for the management of moderate to severe chronic pain in patients requiring a continuous, around-the-clock opioid analgesic for an extended period of time.

Zubsolv Takes On Suboxone In Two Phase 3 Clinical Trials, And The Winner Is . . .

Zubsolv Phase 3 Clinical Trials – Positive Top-line Results Released

Uppsala, Sweden – June 23, 2014 Orexo AB (publ) announces the results of two clinical trials assessing Zubsolv for induction of Buprenorphine maintenance therapy in patients with opioid dependence.

Nikolaj Sorensen, Chief Executive Officer of Orexo, noted “We know a main barrier for DATA2000 certified physicians to start treating opioid dependent patients, is perceived difficulties in the initiation phase of treatment. With an expanded label Orexo can take an active role to encourage and educate the certified, but not active, prescribers in initiation of treatment and improve access to treatment for patients suffering from opioid dependence”

A total of 1,068 opioid dependent patients, showed that over 90% of patients treated with Zubsolv were retained in treatment at Day 3 using a 30% . (emphasis added by author, this is impressive)

The full press-release for the clinical trials are here.

Zubsolv & Suboxone are chemically similar containing buprenorphine & naloxone

 

Zubsolv 5.7 mg Sublingual Tablet

Zubsolv 5.7mg

suboxone241

Suboxone 8mg

Zubsolv is the newest drug available for treatment of Opioid Dependence. The current leader-on-the-block for treatment of Opioid Dependence is Suboxone. Suboxone has been around for several years and is chemically similar to Zubsolv in that both medications consist of two drugs Buprenorphine and Naloxone.

 

What is Buprenorphine?

Buprenorphine is a narcotic analgesic, and it decreases pain by working in the brain and nervous system. Put simply, it is a habit-forming narcotic pain-killer in the same ballpark as other narcotic pain-killers such as Oxycodone or Hydrocodone. All narcotic pain-killers are capable of causing addiction problems and are likely to cause dependence problems with extended use.

What is Naloxone?

Naloxone prevents or reverses the effects of opioids including respiratory depression, sedation and hypotension. Naloxone is an essentially pure opioid antagonist, i.e., it does not possess the “agonistic” or morphine-like properties characteristic of other opioid antagonists. When administered in usual doses and in the absence of opioids or agonistic effects of other opioid antagonists, it exhibits essentially no pharmacologic activity.

Why do Zubsolv & Suboxone contain Buprenorphine & Naloxone?

The combination of buprenorphine and naloxone is what makes Zubsolv & Suboxone effective at treating opioid dependence. The buprenorphine alone would be like taking any other narcotic pain-medicine, however when mixed with Naloxone it makes abuse of the drug difficult if not impossible. The Naloxone displaces opiates so it prevents a dependent user from abusing the drug and getting intoxicated in a way that would lead to addiction. The Naloxone also makes using the drug in IV form not desirable. So the buprenorphine helps to remove the effects of withdrawal while the naloxone keeps the user honest and removes the ability to abuse the drug or use it in a way to get high.

I am generalizing here, but in my understanding this is the basic concept.

My Personal Experience With Zubsolv Compared To Suboxone

The results of the studies surprised me because I had an opportunity to try Zubsolv and it was my opinion that the Zubsolv 5.7mg was much less effective than the Suboxone 8mg strips. After making my opinion about Zubsolv I decided to share it via a Twitter post. I didn’t hold anything back when sharing my opinion, as you can see in the Tweet below.

First Tweet About Zubsolv:

 

I received a very polite response from Chris, he believed that my experience was likely due to the placebo effect and I pretty much discounted that theory immediately because my experience seemed real. When the same Twitter user replied again five days later, he informed me of a clinical study that was completed and was about to be released.

I am aware that placebo-effect is very real, and in light of the study I was willing to entertain the theory that my “mind mighthave been playing tricks on me”, but I was still pretty sure that I was right.

Responses from Twitter user @Christipojk

 

Bigger is always better, right?

After reading the full press release and results of the studies, it is my belief that placebo-effect really did cause me to believe Zubsolv was less effective than Suboxone and I suspect this will be common among other Suboxone loyalists. It is easy to fall for this belief considering that Zubsolv is a smaller dose, and in most peoples’ mind a smaller dose will not be as good as a larger one.

I am used to making one Suboxone 8mg strip last about a week by slicing it into eight equal parts, but when Suboxone wasn’t available and I had the opportunity to try Zubsolv I burned through 5.7mg tablets at the rate of one every three to four days– which was depressing as the medication is relatively expensive.

Micro-Doses of Zubsolv Are Challenging Considering The Small Tablet Size

Zubsolv 5.7 mg Sublingual Tablet

Zubsolv 5.7mg

 

Part of the problem with micro-doses of Zubsolv may be the difficulty in cutting the small Zubsolv tablets into small doses. Cutting a 5.7mg Zubsolv tablet (very small in size) into seven equal parts is close to impossible as the tablets are tiny and they crumble easily when you try to cut them. This alone may make Suboxone strips a better choice for some people. 

 

Suboxone 8mg strips on the other-hand are very easily cut into eight, or even sixteen even parts using a razor blade or sharp scissors.

About Zubsolv®Zubsolv (buprenorphine and naloxone) sublingual tablet (CIII) is indicated for the maintenance treatment of opioid dependence and should be used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan, which includes counseling and psychosocial support. Treatment should be initiated under the direction of physicians who are certified under the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000, and who have been assigned a unique identification number (“X” number).
Zubsolv sublingual tablets can be abused in a manner similar to other opioids, legal or illicit. Clinical monitoring appropriate to the patient’s level of stability is essential. Liver function tests should be monitored before and during treatment. Children who take Zubsolv sublingual tablets can have severe, possibly fatal, respiratory depression. Emergency medical care is critical. Keep Zubsolv sublingual tablets out of the sight and reach of children.

Zubsolv, A New Suboxone Alternative for Opiate Addiction Treatment

Zubsolv, A New Formulation of Buprenorphine and Naloxone

Zubsolv is a new drug formulation of Buprenorphine and Naloxone. Zubsolv is similar to Suboxone and has been approved by the FDA for the same use, opiate addiction.

  • ZUBSOLV is available in 2 doses for Opioid Dependence, 5.7 mg and 1.4 mg.
  • ZUBSOLV is Individually sealed in the highest level of child-resistant unit-dose blister packs (F1 child-resistant)

Zubsolv v.s. Suboxone for Opiate Dependence

Zubsolv comes in two dose sizes that compete directly with Suboxone’s 8mg/2mg and 4mg/1mg strips and sublingual tablets. Orexo, the maker of Zubsolv claims that the dose formulations are comparable to Suboxone even though they contain lower amounts of Buprenorphine and Naloxone. The lower dose sizes are equivalent because the new drug formulation has a higher bio-availability, meaning that a higher percentage of the dose is available to the human body in this new formulation.

The jury is still out on whether Zubsolv works as well as Suboxone. It is the authors’ opinion that Suboxone and Zubsolv should be compared by their dose size and not the claimed bio-availability of the drug. If I had the choice of Suboxone 8mg/2mg v.s. Zubsolv 5.7mg dose I would take Suboxone as it contains more of the medication.

Dosing Comparison For Treatment of Opiate Addiction

Zubsolv 5.7 mg Sublingual Tablet

Zubsolv 5.7 mg Sublingual Tablet

Zubsolv’s 5.7 mg Burprenorphine with 1.4 mg Naloxone comes in a round Menthol flavored sublingual tablet, and is said to have a higher bio-availability than Suboxone strips making it equally as effective as Suboxone in the 8mg/2mg size.

 

 

 

 

Zubsolv 1.4 mg Sublingual Tablet

Zubsolv 1.4 mg Sublingual Tablet

Zubsolv’s 1.4 mg Burprenorphine with .36 mg Naloxone comes in a triangular Menthol flavored sublingual tablet, and is said to have a higher bio-availability than Suboxone strips making it equally as effective as Suboxone in the 2mg/.5mg size.

 

 

 

 

How to take Zubsolv for Opiate Addiction

Taking Zubsolv is similar to taking Suboxone sublingual film, or sublingual tablets. Simply open the package and place the dose under your tongue allowing it to dissolve naturally. Like Suboxone, movement, talking, or drinking while dissolving the tablet is not recommended. Full instructions for taking Zubsolv can be found on Orexo’s Zubsolv website.
