Addicts prescribed opiate replacement drugs can ask about generics rather than relying on proprietary Subutex/Suboxone marketed by Reckitt Benckiser.  Suboxone is buprenorphine with added naloxone to block opioid receptors and helping to avoid abuse.  Subutex is just  buprenorphine.  It is sold generically, since Reckitt Benckiser’s patent expired.   BupPractice.com focuses on proper use.  Recovery Helpdesk is also good website.  Generics are available for $3.00 per 8mg pill or less.  View therapeutic drug replacement for heroin addiction.  Buprenorphine, used in replacement drug therapy and is still addictive but the best option for some.  Treatment professionals call  this replacement drug therapy,  harm reduction.  It stabilizes addicts and gets them off illegal street opiates.  Buprenorphine is safe  for those who can  follow medical directions.   The downside is that tapering  off the drug  is not easy, but the next step.  The blog: suboxone talk zone is a “in the trenches” source of information.
