I was told that there were lawsuits due to some side effects to a long term user of suboxone. Has anyone heard this also?

Nope, at least I haven't heard about anything like that. People threaten to sue and that's most likely what you heard.

Are you having some side effects you're blaming on Suboxone?

BTW, Welcome to the forum!

I'd be surprised if someone didn't sue about something eventually... I am seeing commercials for suits now for testosterone, in addition to the usual ones for antidepressants....

And yes, people do tend to bite the hand the fed them, and forget where they were before they started buprenorphine. I'm old enough to remember the world without buprenorphine-- when the only treatment for opioid dependence was residential treatment, and then blaming the patient for inevitable failure...

but buprenorphine has been around for over 30 years, and it is hard to think of a medication with a better safety profile. As an example.... the talk about diversion.... in ten years, 400 people have died from overdose with some amount of buprenorphine recorded in their systems. That compares to over 400 deaths EVERY year from Tylenol, and 350,000 overdose deaths with NO buprenorphine on board. Hard to sue over that.
