Quick review: Since the Oxycontin generic is all gone (some pharmacies may still have a few dwindling pills), I need to switch in a couple of weeks to something else or pay for the brand name version which is over $400 more!
My doctor is excited about Subutex. He told me that if he were me, he's take it instead of Oxycontin.
Have any of you taken it? Does anyone know anything good or bad about it? I guess it is a form of Suboxone, but with out the nauseau causing ingredients that keep addicts from abusing it.
He wants me to take Subutex as a daily pain medication unlike Suboxone which I guess is mostly used to help people rapidly get off opiates.
Otherwise, I can take MS Contin again which didn't work very well, but this time at a higher dose or try a patch of some kind. Should I try Subutex? I know you guys aren't doctors, just share your experience please.
Thanks in advance for the input!
