... (sacramento, ca) that has it in stock. They tell me it is on back order until Feb. 2010. Is anyone else having the same problem?
Buprenorphine - I have been prescribed burenorphine and cannot find a pharmacy in my area?
Added 10 Dec 2009:
I should include that Buprenorphine is for generic subutex. I was able to fill one prescription of 30 tablets the middle of november. When I tried to refill it today I could not find a pharmacy that had any of the generic in stock. They are all sold out. The generic saved me close to $300.00 from paying for the brand name. Is anyone having the same problem?
Unfortunately, I have some bad news. The original manufactuer of Suboxone/Subutex, Rickett&Benckiser has bought back the patent for another year. They are telling people that it's on backorder but it will not be available until another year. This is devatating for me b/c not only am I on the medication but I also work at a Suboxone Treatment Center. I care about my patients, and being on the medication myself, I know how hard it is to come up with that kind of money. I'm pretty sure that they will continue to say it is on backorder, as to not call it a "recall" b/c that would put a stigma on the generic no matter what it was recalled for. People will assume something was wrong with it when, in fact, it is all just b/c R&B are another greedy American Drug Co. that wanted money in thier pockets instead of working sober Americans. I could go on and on, but I won't. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it affects me, also: (
