Do any of you have experience with switching from the strips to the tablets? My wife is telling me that it can put you into precipitated withdrawal, but the tablets are all I have. I've been taking strictly strips for almost a year now...I haven't had a tablet since then. Please advise!

Hello, I have never heard of that happening before,I've only been on subs 3 months so I'm not an expert. I have been on both with no problem at all. They are the same medicine and should not hurt you at all. I know a few people that trade when they run short and I've never heard of any problems.
Good Luck
Mel :wink:

Soyburglar,

There shouldn't be any problem switching over. You went from the tabs to the film, right? From what I've heard is that the film may give you more absorption. If you feel like the dose isn't quite the same, take a wee bit more until you get more films.

Good Luck!

You will not get Prec withdrawl from switching between the film and tabs. They are the exact same medication, just in different form. Like Rule said some people report getting better absorbtion from the strips. I switched from the strips to generic subutex tabs and didn't notice any difference.

Like the others have said, you will not get precipitated withdrawals from going from the tablet to the strip or vice versa. They are the same thing, just a different form. So go ahead and switch over - you'll be fine!

Just to ease your mind i will help. I waz on suboxone for four years so when i first started it was the tabletts and i had a huge stock pile of extras the most i had at one point was 230 8mg pills. Than the films came out and i was switched to them so that left me with a couple hundread pills. The moral of the story is i would take both films and pills in the same day with no problems what so ever.

Should not be an issue. I have some leftover pills myself. I am actually saving one 8 milligram for a liquid taper if needed.
