if your doctor allow you too and you shouldnt have any problems switching. I know its expensive but isnt the subutex just as expensive. I never looked at the price of it. let me know. Also i believe their is a generic coming out real soon and you may want to look at that.One other thing is what is your dose. some people and i say some have been able to stretch their dose by taking it every other day because of the half life. I am not telling you to do this but people do take it every other day because of the long half life for same reasons its just so expensive. if i didnt have insurance it would cost alot. another option and many people dont know this the cost say of 30 2mg of subs is $90 That same script for 8mg 30 pills and just about $10 higher,ask your pharmacist i have seen this numerous times its the quantity not the dosage alot of times that makes the difference. I have had doctors(not for suboxone) write me higher doses because they know i can get a 3 month supply out of one script if they writer a higher dosage and the pills can be cut. look into that but subs might be harder because its a narc and docs dont like doing that with those. Good luck
