I posted this in annoucmentgs but thought it should be here as well so as many see it as possible
Not sure if many have seen but finally suboxone generics are at the pharemacies. They got FDa final approval in aboutt Febuary and have been on shelfs since march. 3 companys making them and prices dropping.

First up is ZUBSOVL:
Quote:
http://www.zubsolv.com/
Marketing it as more rapid absorbtion and therefore less dosage needed based formulation that is menthol flavor. Savings card of $75 for 6 fills on site.

Median dissolve time for ZUBSOLV 5.7-mg/1.4-mg tablet was 5 minutes vs
12.5 minutes for Suboxone 8-mg/2-mg tablet
- In a separate study, the median dissolve time was similar for both
ZUBSOLV 5.7-mg/1.4-mg tablet and Suboxone 8-mg/2-mg film


Second up is: AMNEAL PHARMACEUTICALS
Quote:
http://www.amneal.com/

No special "rebranding" or claims of a new formulation it is striaght generic 8mg and 2mg pills that are orange, however they are a bit smaller than suboxne was. here is a link to the pdf of the annoucment.

Third: ACTAVIS ELIZABETH
Quote:
Same as amneal, straight up generic subs. However thy are the worlds 3rd largest pharma company, maybe they will becomoe the cheapest...

Great informative post hpchris!

It will take time for any pricing on these because they are so new. Competition almost always brings down prices. As soon as anyone knows the $ difference, please post it for all to read.

chris, I removed your other post only because it was posted in the "General Comments from the Suboxone Dr." That section is for Dr. Junig to post in primarily. We don't need more than one post on the subject, but if you really want to have more than one, post it in a different section.

Thanks for the post, hpchris. I had heard about the Zubsolv and the generic from Amneal, but not the Actavis generic.

Here are the tablet descriptions for anyone who is curious:

Zubsolv (Orexo Pharmaceuticals)
buprenorphine/naloxone 1.4 mg/0.36 mg – white, triangular tablet, imprint "1.4" / blank
buprenorphine/naloxone 5.7 mg/1.4 mg – white, round tablet, imprint "5.7" / blank

Amneal generics
buprenorphine/naloxone 2 mg/0.5 mg – orange, round, biconvex tablet, debossed “A” on one side and “14” on the other side
buprenorphine/naloxone 8 mg/2 mg – orange, round, biconvex tablet, debossed “AN 415” on one side and plain on the other side

Actavis generics
buprenorphine/naloxone 2 mg/0.5 mg – white to off-white, round tablet, debossed with crescent moon on one side and "154" on the other side
buprenorphine/naloxone 8 mg/2 mg - white to off-white, round tablet debossed with crescent moon on one side and "155" on the other side

Interesting dosages for the Zubsolv. They claim that Zubsolv tablets are absorbed better/more rapidly than Suboxone so you get more active buprenorphine with a lower dose.
