I just started the film yesterday morning.

When I started Suboxone I was taking 32mg/day,but only take 16mg/day now.

What helped me go down was by taking 1/2 tablet 4 times/day,but I read the directions and it didn't meantion cutting or how to store cut strips for 1/2 day max.

Anyone cut thier film?

Hi, I am on the films and cut them. I put the cut half back in the wrapper and fold over the top. I have used the cut piece even 2 days later and it was fine. I just try not to touch it anymore than I need to. Hope this helps.

I cut the film and store it in an old prescription bottle in a nice dry cupboard. Dry is the operative word.

Thanks for the replies.



Was any of you switched from tablets to film?Does the film take a while to get used too?

Everyone is different. For me, the film was 100% better that the pills. Not so bad tasting, faster acting, easier to store, and it melts very fast. It seemed the tabs took so long to dissolve and I was afraid to swallow. With the film I don't think about anything. Just put it under my tongue and forget about it.

Now others may post completely different stories on their experience so you have to try it for yourself and find out. It is supposed to be an improvement all the way around.

What is your concern about the films?

After my 2nd day and cutting them in half,they are working.Cutting them in the package is a really good idea.

I cut the 8mg films into 8 pieces. They even occasionally fall on the ground , which has dirt, crumbs, bodily fluids, etc. I used to be really careful with putting them in prescription bottles to keep them as fresh as possible, but lately I don't bother. I let them sit out in my humid room in the opened foil pouch and travel with them in my wallet that I sit on. I still get that familiar shitty, joyless buzz. It doesn't make a difference.

yeah it really doesnt matter. just as the post above says, i do the same. i finger them up. leave them lay out. put them in a bottle. nothing you do will mess them up for you. and they don't expire in like 2 days after opening them. i take 1-2mg every other day, so my 8mg strip is laying around and getting cut up for days. its all good
