My bf says that subutex isn't the generic, that it doesn't have the blocker in it, and it something different.

Subutex is the NAME BRAND of the buprenorphine product that comes without the naloxone ingredient. There IS a generic version of subutex available, but no generic version of suboxone on the market. Hope that explains it.

There SHOULD be a generic Suboxone tablets, as RB's Suboxone tablet patent expired back in 2009. And there likely would generic Suboxone if RB didn't wage their effective campaign of disinformation to persuade doctors that the tablets are now a liability, and that their new film is the only safe option.

As a result, many doctors are now as apprehensive to prescribe the tablets as they are Subutex. Any companies that planned to manufacture generic Suboxone tablets (Roxane / Tiva?) no longer have the market to make it worthwhile. Otherwise they woulda been all over it.

As morally bankrupt as the whole thing is, you gotta admire the genius.
