Buprenorphine can be either schedule 3 or schedule 5 depending on what it is being used for - treating opiate dependence or treating pain.

Before the thumbs down, did anybody even bother to click on the link and see that subutex has multiple classes? Unless is misinformed, no reason not to double check the info first...

Buprenorphine (suboxone) and all products containing buprenorphine are controlled in Schedule III of the Controlled Substances Act.

Wrong answer. Buprenorphine as the nasal spray called Stadol or as a injectable solutuion called Buprenex is SCHEDULE 5... I cant believe how many people dont know this . Here is a fun fact Buprenorphine has been around since 1978.. That is why it is a schedule 5. Because it was a 5 all the way until 2002 when the FDA approved it for use as Suboxone or Subutex...

suboxone and subutex are class 3 ... Buprenex and Stadol are class 5 . Buprenorphine is scheduled twice . Bupe used for opiate dependence is a 3. When used for pain as Stadol nasal spray or injectable solution Buprenex irt is a 5... Check the facts

Recently the schedules have changed and Stadol is now a 4as is Buprenex. Suboxone and subutex remain a 3. Stadol and buprenex contain Buprenorphine has been around since the late 1970's.

I have heard from many counselors that is is actually a schedule 3. However I have heard of people who have been caught and was written as a schedule
1or 2 I think it depends on how it's used if its yours or if its intended to sell which in my opinion
Shouldn't change what it is its still the same drug

Many mistaken answers here. All forms of buprenorphine are Schedule III under Federal law, no exceptions.

Stadol contains butorphenol, not buprenorphine, and is therefore Schedule IV under Federal law. free discount card
