My Suboxone doctor ,who I really like, asked me to bring back all of my empty Suboxone wrappers next month. He mentioned tht the company wants to scan the bar code on the wrappers for quality control. He mentioned that they have had a lot of complaints about film breakage, etc.
Has anyone else been asked to do this? I really don't understand how having the wrappers is important. I have absolutely no problem doing this..it just sounded strange.

QC issues -- RB pays another company to make that film for them...and they have to have lot numbers in order to correctly place the blame with the company doing the actual cutting of sublingual films. I've been wondering when they would address this (I think it's because the film is so thin and the foil probably changes with room temperature changes).

Me too - Every month when I go to my Dr. I have to bring her all of my suboxone film wrappers and any unopened films I might have. She counts them and makes sure I am bringing back all that were prescribed. She never mentioned that she would be scanning them - so i don't know if she does. But I know one reason she does this is to make sure I'm not selling them. Ever since I've been taking suboxone (over a year), i have been required to bring back my medication (opened and unopened). Apparently this is "best practice" for sub docs.
