Suboxone Cost?
 
Hey if y'all don't mind I would appreciate a couple of folks chiming in here with how much you pay for suboxone and maybe even which pharmacy you use [If it's a chain or on line].

I just read a post from fisherpard - you said you pay $80 for 30 8mg pills? Well I pay DOUBLE that, and let me tell you $6 a pill is not cool. If I read you right, please let me know as I would LOVE to cut my suboxone costs in half.

Thank you!

koffree,

It cost me anywhere between $3-4 per pill no matter what mg it was. So I would get the 8mgs and use a pill cutter. I have heard of people having to pay the price you suggested also. I would do some pharmacy shopping and see if you can't find a place that will sell it cheaper.

Thank you I will do that. $3-4 is a significant savings from what I'm paying now. I just assumed I could not find them anywhere else.

Imagine me...on my first day with the subs...
I visit the doctor at around 9AM, already HEAVILY in wd, anticipating getting on the suboxone. I barely make it through my appointment, he gives me my first script for the subs, and I'm off to the nearest pharmacy to fill it.

By 4PM, after several more hours in wd, having driven almost a hundred miles to about 8 different pharmacies, I finally found one that could scrounge up a handful of pills for me. Literally like 5 pills.

I'm glad this seems funny to me now, but that day was h e l l!

Get with one of your local mom and pop drug stores and get them to order it for you. They usually can have it the next day and if you talk price, I just bet they will save you money.

best wishes,
