So my insurance covers a generic bupe with nalaxone pill. Which brands work the best? I know it's fairly subjective but I'd love to hear your experiences

My 2 cents.... I hear discussion about the different types of generic buprenorphine, but I haven't heard much comment about the different types of bupe/naloxone. The other day a patient who gets the generic combination tablet complained that it comes in a big box that has a sheet with embedded push-out tablets. He said that it takes up a big space when he travels, and he wondered if the tabs would be OK if he pushed a bunch out and put them in a pill container.

He mentioned that he used to get orange-colored tabs, and now they are white... but that's all I've heard. In my area most insurers cover either one of the name brands, or generic buprenorphine-- not as much the combination generic tabs.

Ok thanks for the reply. I'm wondering about how well they work because I was down to 2 mg's a day on the suboxone film strips but after I got switched to the generic bupe I was in withdrawal and had to go up to 24 mg's a day.

I'm trying to get back to where I was before but it seems all the generics are poop.

Quick question. Is zubsolve a generic or is it its own brand name?
