Hey Just...cant say for sure but yes, someone or thing has put the idea in your drs mind that Subutex bad and suboxone is better. Better for Whom??

sorry this has happened to you. Ill loved to have the cheaper "tex" but cant find a dr who will write for it, and im glad for the med i get..
so..idk call around maybe you ll get lucky and find a doc who will write for it..I could go on about all the reasons we think drs do this but it is what it is..best of luck ...razor..

I'm positive I saw that Dr. Junig wrote that subutex is no longer available.

Subutex is no longer being manufactured by RB, but buprenorphine hcl (generic Subutex) is being made my multiple manufacturers at this point.

At my appointment in December, I mentioned to my Doc that Suboxone films were no longer covered by my insurance but Subutex is covered. He also said he could not prescribe Subutex either.

So..I asked for Zubsolv which is a little cheaper. Not as cheap as Subutex but cheaper that the films.
