I received a customer survey from the NAABT site for the patient / physician matching (useless for me by the way). The following was on the survey.

Which buprenorphine medication did you start?

Subutex or generic equivalent (buprenorphine)
Suboxone or generic equivalent (buprenorphine/naloxone)
Other: Explain

So the generic must exist right? Either that or they put this in here because they know it WILL exist. If I didn't have to work today I would research this again. Anyone have any updates on this yet?

I haven't heard anything lately about suboxone going generic. I think it's reasonable to conclude that they added that for the generic that will be available at some future date. I'll do some research and let you know if I find out anything different.

This is what I found:

Roxane Labs Generic Suboxone Hits the Market

January 22, 2010 in ANNOUNCEMENTS, SUBOXONE & OPIOIDS

Were talking about the therapeutic replacement drug for opiate based drug addicts. Yes it is an addictive drug too; but the benefits are immense for those who can manage it. The first round of generics comes in at half the cost as Reckitt Benckiser’s patent expired in October. This will help addicts. The blog: suboxone talk zone is the most in the trenches source of information on this. Read the article here. This link leads to Dr. J's blog.

I read on a blog/forum that it should go generic in 2010, but nothing concrete.

Based on what I didn't find, I would say there are no specific plans to go generic right away.

We can only hope!
