Discussions that mention suboxone

Pain Management board


Because of the "work issue" I quit taking my Kadian and am now taking Suboxone. Which works rather well. Honestly I feel as though it is more effective for my pain then the Kadian. Specificely the nerve pain. Go figure, maybe its just a placebo effect because I was realy hoping that it would work. But hey, I'll take what I can get. I am scared because my insurance will run out at the end of the month and the Suboxone is very expensive. It's aprox. $300 every two weeks! I do see my pain doctor before the end of the month and maybe he can write me for alot of pills and I can fill them while I have insurance, the pharmicist I go to actually recomended that. Hopfully I will get a new job soon that has decent coverage! I'm going to work on that now. Faby, that would be great if you have any suggestions for the meantime, I would really apreciate. For now I'm making as many doctor, dentist, eye visits, etc for my wife and I before the months end.

Thanks again,

Reckitt Benckiser makes Subutex and Suboxone -- they have a patient assistance program: [url]http://www.rxassist.org/pap-info/company_detail.cfm?CmpId=173[/url]

Suboxone is schedule III -- up to 5 refills are allowed -- not sure if this is the same in all states. Due to its status as an "addiction treatment med" many doctors will not give out more than 1 refill, if any.
