Hello all, thanks again for all the helpful and supportive replies in my other thread about taking Suboxone long term.

I have an issue right now, and I apoligice if this has been covered because I'M SURE it has (but I didn't see it lately in this topic). There are a lot of topics so sorry again if this is the wrong spot. This does include side effects to an extent tough... I was just given a new brand of Generic Subutex for the first time ever in 2-3 years!

OK... so I was just recently got my meds and I see it's switched from Roxanne Labs to TEVA. I remember TEVA from the Oxy/Hydro days and I always thought it was a crappy brand personally. I find the taste is a lil more bitter, and the compound of the pill seems lighter weight on these TEVA brand Subutex. It always is harder to break apart despite being lighter and dissolving quicker. I also have the weird feeling I'm kind of "high". I don't like it because I found myself itching a lot and it reminded me of that crazy side effect of pain pills where you itch nonstop! I think it might just be in my head but I didn't like the taste, to me it tasted a lil more like the time I tried Methadone and it had this NASTY artificial taste!! I kind of tasted something similar in these TEVAS. I'm just probably worrying too much due to my anxiety AND THE FACT I've gotten generic Roxanne Subutex for the last 2 years straight!!! I just switched to Walgreens from CVS because I saw the price was 15 bucks cheaper ($127 at Walgreens & $144 at CVS). I've been going to CVS for the last 3 years and I got really used to Roxanne. I like how the pill is a circle because I make #30 8mg tablets last me 3-4 months! I only take 2-4 maximum mgs a day so its become routine to break them into 4's. Then I usually take the 4 pieces and break them into 2 doses for the day. I've been doing this for years and don't like change. Now I see these TEVAS are oval shaped just like the BRAND NAME Subutex but now I don't like the oval. Its now changed my routine how I split the dosages and like I said, they don't break apart as evenly as the Roxanne. Maybe this is all in my head??? I haven't done any web searching yet because I'll probably convince myself they are no good...lol.


I'll check back here soon & this is only day 2 on the new brand so I'm still wondering if it's in my head or if it's true. Like I said I'm sure this issue has been covered and I apologize if I'm beating a dead horse, just would appreciate some input! Thanks! Hope everyone had a good Monday :)

hi! i am glad you started this thread, i tried but had problems, i use my phone for internet. i have had both, didnt see much difference with roxane to teva, but saw a huge difference in the new hitech pharma brand. they are tiny{so we cant make an 8 go far} so i thought it was in my head that they wouldnt work well. for the 2 months on them, i was having nausea, sweats, chills, anger, sadness, depression and always looking forward to my dose. just recently when i refilled, they had roxane. i took my morning dose and didnt take more the rest of the day, i felt so overmedicated! so that proved it is not in my head. my pharmacist is only ordering roxane brand for me now.

While I've only ever taken RB variety of Subutex/Suboxone, I have noticed differences in generic and brand name medications in the past. I really get the feeling there's a lack of testing done by the authorities with some of these medications.
