and is now being excepted in the USA for pain management and a 5,10,20, mgc/ patch that will last for 7 days. It has been perscribed in Europe for some time now. but the fact that it can now be used for pain management is the good news. now that subutex can be marketed hopefully will take some of the stigma off of it. IM hoping that the price will come down so people can finally afford it. and insurance companies will cover it for P/M
