How To Use
  • Place Subutex under your tongue and let it dissolve completely, usually once daily for two days, or as directed.
  • Then your doctor usually will switch you to the buprenorphine/naloxone medication, which works the same way as Subutex.
  • Subutex comes with a patient information leaflet.
  • Read it carefully.
  • Ask your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist any questions that you may have about Subutex.
  • Do not swallow Subutex, as it will not be as effective if it is swallowed.
  • If you are prescribed more than one tablet each day, you may place all of the tablets under your tongue at once.
  • If this is not possible, then you may place two tablets at a time under your tongue, until they all have dissolved.
  • Use Subutex exactly as prescribed.
  • Do not increase your dose, take it more frequently or use it for a longer period of time than prescribed.
  • Also, if used for an extended period of time, do not suddenly stop using Subutex without your doctor s approval, or withdrawal symptoms may occur.
  • Use Subutex regularly in order to get the most benefit from it.
  • To help you remember, use it at the same time each day.
  • Do not inject ( shoot up ) buprenorphine.
  • Injecting it is dangerous and you may have severe withdrawal symptoms (see Side Effects section).
  • Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.
  • Buprenorphine can cause withdrawal symptoms if you use it soon after using narcotics such as heroin, morphine, or methadone.
  • Follow your doctor s instructions for your treatment plan.

Side Effects
  • Drowsiness, dizziness, weakness, constipation, headache, nausea, or vomiting may occur.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist immediately.
  • Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: slow, shallow breathing, mental/mood changes (e.g., depression), stomach/abdominal pain.
  • Tell your doctor immediately if any of these highly unlikely but very serious side effects occur: dark urine, yellowing eyes and skin, vision changes.
  • An allergic reaction to Subutex is unlikely, but seek immediate medical attention if it occurs.
  • Symptoms of an allergic reaction include: rash, itching, swelling, severe dizziness, trouble breathing.
  • Narcotic withdrawal symptoms include diarrhea, severe mental/mood changes (such as anxiety, irritability, trouble sleeping), muscle stiffness or shakiness.
  • If such symptoms occur, notify your doctor or pharmacist immediately.
  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Precautions
  • Before using Subutex, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of: lung disease, liver disease, serious head injury or brain diseases (lesions), low thyroid problems (hypothyroidism), adrenal problems (Addison s disease), psychiatric problems (toxic psychosis), difficulty urinating (enlarged prostate or urethral narrowing), acute alcoholism (with or without delirium tremens), spinal problems (kyphoscoliosis), gallbladder (biliary tract) disease and other abdominal conditions, any allergies.
  • Subutex may make you dizzy or drowsy; use caution engaging in activities requiring alertness such as driving or using machinery.
  • Avoid alcoholic beverages.
  • To minimize dizziness and lightheadedness, get up slowly when rising from a seated or lying position.
  • Caution is advised when using Subutex in the elderly because they may be more sensitive to the effects of Subutex, especially the possible decreased breathing and drowsiness effects.
  • Subutex should be used only when clearly needed during pregnancy.
  • Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.
  • Subutex passes into breast milk.
  • Due to the potential risk to the infant, breast-feeding while using Subutex is not recommended.

Missed Dose
  • If you miss a dose, use it as soon as you remember.
  • If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule.
  • Do not double the dose to catch up.

Drug Interactions
  • Before using Subutex, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription products you may use, especially of: MAO inhibitors (e.g., furazolidone, linezolid, moclobemide, phenelzine procarbazine, selegiline, isocarboxazid, tranylcypromine), drugs which decrease liver metabolism (inhibitors of cytochrome 3A4 enzymes such as itraconazole, ketoconazole, erythromycin, clarithromycin, ritonavir, indinavir, saquinavir), local anesthetics (e.g., bupivacaine), sedative drugs (benzodiazepines such as diazepam, lorazepam).
  • Deaths have occurred when buprenorphine has been misused by injecting it ( shooting up ), especially when used in combination with benzodiazepines (e.g., diazepam) or other depressants such as alcohol or additional narcotics.
  • Also report the use of other drugs that cause drowsiness such as: medicine for sleep (e.g., sedatives), tranquilizers, anti-anxiety drugs (e.g., temazepam), narcotic pain relievers (e.g., codeine), psychiatric medicines (e.g., phenothiazines such as chlorpromazine, or tricyclics such as amitriptyline), anti-seizure drugs (e.g., carbamazepine), muscle relaxants, antihistamines that cause drowsiness (e.g., diphenhydramine).
  • Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.

Been on Suboxone for about 6 mnths and recently switched to Subutex, Found it VERY VERY hard trying to get off the suboxone, weaned myself down to 1MG and then stopped..... experienced THE WORST withdrawal symptoms EVER!!! So i'm worried i'm going to have to go through a nightmare if I don't want to be on these buprenorphine for the rest of my life...... was easier going cold turkey off Heroin lol!!

Reason: To get off heroin Date: 22 January 2010
Side Effects
It is incredibly good at relieving withdrawl symptoms. There is very little euphoria, even less than methadone. Also, one dose lasts up to 2 days (even though it is dosed daily). However, getting off of it is the biggest nightmare ever! MUCH worse than methadone. Hardcore withdrawl symptoms for 1 month, significant withdrawl symptoms for a second month. Almost no sleep for 3 whole months! (Seriously!) Absolutely terrible! the worst poison I have ever put in my body (just because of the insane withdrawls!) I think the most unbelievable part of it all is that the worst withdrawl symptoms do not start until about 10-12 days after cesation! The only way to get off of it is to change back to a short half-life opiate (like heroin) for two months or more and then go cold turkey.

Additional Thoughts
This medication would be great for life long maintanance therapy. That is the only way I can recomend it. Also, I should say that it is very easy to go down in dose, from say 8mgs per day to even 1mg. It is going from 1mg to zero that is absolutely impossible. None of the people below mentioned anything about trying to get off Subutex. Please beware of this drug. It is the devil in disguise.
