Hi Guys,

I read a few posts yesterday mentioning the Suboxone patient-doctor contracts. I had never heard of this. My doctor never had me sign anything like this. Are all Suboxone doctors supposed to have their patients sign this agreement, or is it at the doctor's discretion?
I'd like to know if anybody else here has NOT signed this agreement

Thanks,
Susie

It is highly recommended, both in the Suboxone waiver training and in the FDA training for any long acting opioid. Another tool so both provider and patient are on 'the same page.' It is not a requirement but I wonder what would happen in an audit if there wasn't some sort of mechanism for showing that all that information has been reviewed and understood. PAX

My Suboxone doctor never had me sign any agreements. Come to think of it, she never explained what a failed UA would result in. The only thing she really talked to me about was keeping appointments every 30 days. A missed appointment meant being dropped from her "active" patient list.

In Texas the law is quite clear. Doctors here are under the gun and a lot of Pain doctors - DECENT ones have left the state.

You must sign contracts to both your doctor and the state.
