Is generic of Subutex the same?

by Christopher

Hi
My service has been asked to replace Subutex with generic Buprenorphine to reduce cost, and rightly so.

However, a couple of patients have experienced agitation, and feel the the generic drug is not as potent.

Is there a difference between the drugs?

Subutex is brand name for Buprenorphine
by: Debbie Wicker

The short answer to your question is that Subutex is the brand name for Buprenorphine. Subutex only contains Buprenorphine and nothing else. Your patients should be receiving the exact same effect from the generic.

Suboxone does contain other ingredients, an many believe is less likely to be abused because of the the additions.

But switching from the brand name to the generic should cause no issues assuming the same amount is given.
