I know this forum is for Methadone patients and that we usually don't post about Suboxone. But some of you may have some family members or friends who are taking it, so I thought it would be a good idea for me to post.

In doing some reasearch for our Suboxone Forum, I came across an announcement on the SAMHSA website yesterday.

The makers of Suboxone and Subutex; Reckitt Benckiser are to discontinue making Subutex; (Suboxone without the naloxone)


Statement from Reckitt Benckiser
“Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals Inc. is discontinuing distribution and sale of Subutex® tablets as we believe that mono product (product containing buprenorphine alone with no naloxone) creates a greater risk of misuse, abuse and diversion, and while other mono product may be available on the market, we are concentrating our efforts around less abusable products in order to protect patients, communities and access to treatment.”


For those of you who wish to view the statement online please visit the SAMHSA website for more information and read the letter that is being sent out to providers.

Am I using this forum right? Seems like no one is ever on it and I can't find any new posts

Good morning ptrsnake,
it is good to have you with us. I apologize for not welcoming you to the forum sooner. I have been a bit lax in that department lately.

There are a few ways to use the forum. One is to view the posts by using the forum "portal" button on the top left of the screen to view the most recent posts. To read or comment on one of those posts click on the link for that particular post.

You can also go to the Home page of the forum and if you scroll down to the bottom of the Chat box, you will see links for three options.

1. View posts since your last visit
2. View your posts
3. View unanswered posts

The forum hasn't really been that active lately. There are times when it gets busy and others where it seems that no one is posting at all.
If you have a topic that you would like to talk about or get a discussion going, you are more than welcome to post.

RuthAnn is the moderator of the forum and while I am here most days monitoring the forum I do spend most of my posting time on our Suboxone forum as I am currently a Suboxone patient.

If you would like to it would be great if you could go over to the introductions area of the forum and tell us a little bit about yourself.
Again, welcome it is good to have you with us.
Dee
