Are you sure? I didn't think it was available for generic for quite a few years. Please let us know some more details, like what the generic is called.Will there be a generic Suboxone? Thank you so much, Patti

On October 9th the exclusive marketing rights afforded by Suboxone’s and Subutex’s orphan drug status expired. This opened the door to generic competition. One generic version of Subutex has been FDA approved, but as of 10/25/09 no generic versions of Suboxone have been approved. There is no word on pricing yet.
Note: Buprenex® (injectable buprenorphine), and the 3 generic equivalents remain unapproved for the treatment of opioid addiction. It remains illegal for doctors to prescribe or administer injectable buprenorphine for the treatment of opioid addiction.
This is why I am not going to get on sub after the methadone . The subs are too expensive first of all and second,I don't want to ever have to go through another detox ever again after i'm finally done with the methadone.
