Pretty excited.. Doc switched me over to subutex tonight. Excited because now my monthly cost just went from a little over $300 a month to about $90 since I don't have insurance. Talk about relieving some of my anxiety due to money issues!!

Hey positivetj,

Subutex also contains NO Naloxone, one less med to detox off of when the time comes! The $210 per month is a major bonus too!!

"Subutex also contains NO Naloxone, one less med to detox off of when the time comes!"

I'm curious what you meant by this Romeo - or I'm confused. Naloxone is not something that would ever need to be "detoxed" off of. It is not habit forming or does not cause any withdrawal symptoms when stopped. More over, when taken in Suboxone, it is not absorbed into the body so even if there was some level of "detox" that would be needed from Naloxone, since it is not getting into the system and having any effect, there would be nothing to have to detox from. So this is sort of a double negative.

However, I may be missing something here. Hopefully you can clear up what you meant by having to detox off of Naloxone within Suboxone. Thanks.

Hey Marie....I havent started...will start tomorrow morning...hoping if anything is different it will be positive. Ive heard from some people that the generic pills are a lot harder to dissolve..not sure if thats true...guess I will find out tomorrow.

Good for you! Honestly, I think it's a better choice to be on the Subutex. It makes no sense, unless you are at risk of shooting up your meds, to be on Suboxone. In my opinion, it's better to be safe and not sorry. If my doctor would okay it, I'd switch to Subutex too.
