Because I have Medicare starting next month and Buprenorhine is covered under my supplemental formulary with a five dollar copay. I was wondering if it was the same medication essentially just without the Naloxone? Would I feel the same taking it? Would it do the same thing to control my cravings for opiates (which I am not having any at present). This would make a huge difference in our pocket book by being able to drop my husbands healthcare for me to the tune of $400.00 If you know could you please share your experiences with this? Thanks.

Same thing. The naloxone doesn't do anything in terms of how you feel. Save some money.

Maybe people will chime in on what generic they had etc. and how it it was. I was never on anything besides brand name suboxone tabs and then films.

HI, I was on generic bup only the first week. I noticed absolutely no difference whatsoever when I was switched to Suboxone. Actually I got headaches from the naloxone, but you are going the other way. So, go save yourself $400 bucks! No difference at all for me.

I've been on both. My doctor perscribed it to me, in the begining when I was paying out of pocket for the entire
script. the generic was about 200 a month, versus 550 for suboxone.

for SOME reason though, some doctors are hesitant on writing for the generic, its thier belief it's easier "abused"
And when I asked my doctor about possibly getting it again, He was hesistant, to say the least. LOL So, I'll be paying 500 a month again, in a month.

heres a thread about some people's experiences. BUT, if your doctor has already "ok'd" it, then GO FOR IT

I didnt notice any difference, except TASTE, lol
