The pharmacist eyes you suspiciously, and suddenly you wished you had shaved earlier this morning... your second-grade teacher is in line behind you, talking to your girlfriends mother... as the pharmacist yells for all to hear, 'I'm sick of YOU PEOPLE-- and I'm not filling this for you anymore!' Or your doctor, after increasing your pain meds for years, suddenly treats you like a criminal...

 Post subject: Observed urine
PostPosted: Thu Apr 12, 2018 1:13 pm 
So my psychiatrist (& Suboxone prescriber) moved from private practice to a clinic, and I went with her. For those of you who don’t know me I was on Suboxone maintenance for 3 years, going off in 2013. I recently went back on a very low dose basically for relapse prevention.

So for the first time EVER I was asked to give an observed urine. I didn’t have to go so it turned into a ...

 Post subject: doctor is taking advantage of me
PostPosted: Wed Apr 11, 2018 3:31 am 
So i recently started the suboxone program and I believe I might be getting ripped off. So when I first started going to this new clinic that opened I was charged 300 dollars for my first visit (even though I have health insurance. Then Ive been forced to go there twice a week for urine tests, and after one month I get a bill for 700 dollars that my insurance doesnt cover. I ask why ...

 Post subject: How many days early can you fill your RX?
PostPosted: Fri Apr 06, 2018 3:16 pm 
I need to fill my Suboxone RX 5-6 days early due to dosage change issues.

My doctor gave me 2 strips a day for months when I only took 1.5 and now I am down to 1 1/4 strips a day so to use up my extras my doctor wrote an RX for 30 strips at my last visit 5 weeks ago. Issue is, my last script was written on 2/28, however due to my ...

 Post subject: Partial fill
PostPosted: Sat Dec 16, 2017 11:58 am 
I feel like I’ve posted more under this topic than anybody, but I’ve had bad luck with pharmacies. I saw my doc Thurs and after what just happened to Rule I asked her to write me 2 2mg films per day, even though I only take one. She agreed that I should have some extras since I have had insurance issues in the past. So the pharmacy texts me that the script was ready, even ...

 Post subject: Too much water = no sub metabolites in urine?
PostPosted: Wed Nov 08, 2017 10:16 pm 
I just got back from my appointment and I was told that two previous urine tests were very diluted and showed no suboxone or it's metabolite in my urine. I asked if it had to do with me drinking a lot of water, which I tend to do ever since I replaced too much soda with watser, and they said that would explain the Suboxone not showing up but the metabolites should still be there. ...

 Post subject: Increased $ For Roxa Brand Subutex
PostPosted: Mon Sep 25, 2017 1:10 pm 
Has anyone on the Roxa brand Subutex experienced a significant increase in price lately for their medication?

I'm a cash patient (it's simply too expensive for our family to purchase coverage through my husbands employer and we don't qualify for Medicade), so every dollar counts.

A couple months ago, my pharmacy tried charging me double the price when I picked up my prescription. It's normally about $100 for 60 8mg tabs.....they charged me over $200. ...

PostPosted: Wed Aug 30, 2017 7:41 pm 
Hey there,

So I am a pharmacist and I'm not the devil lol. I try to treat ALL patients with kindness, respect, and professionalism. I apologize for those in the field who have not always been to suboxone patients... BUT my question to this forum-

Why do I have so many picky patients who want a certain color/brand/certain word on their suboxone generic tablets? I have patients who only want DARK orange, they refuse the ...
