A New Addiction Treatment Product That Changes Everything
About one month ago, as of the writing of this post, Mylan has released a generic version of the Suboxone Sublingual Film. It is so new that GoodRx.com does not even have a discount price listed for it. However, I have heard reports back that prices are very low. The affordable Mylan generic Suboxone strips make it possible for anyone struggling with opiate addiction to get treatment.
What about generic sublingual tablets?
For some time now, generic Suboxone tablets have been available. While tablets work well for some patients, others complain that they are not as good. In order for patients to buy the Suboxone film, they had to either have good insurance or pay exorbitant prices. As of about a month ago, this is no longer a problem.
Mylan Generic Suboxone strips are basically the same as Suboxone films.
I have had the opportunity to speak to several patients who have tried the Mylan generic Suboxone strips. They tell me that there is little, if any, difference. The brand and generic strips are about the same. Therefore, there is no reason to not get the generic.
Will there be other generic Suboxone film brands coming out soon?
In fact, there may already be other brands. It seems that the Mylan generic Suboxone strips are the brand that local pharmacies in my area are carrying. It seems likely that we will be seeing other generic buprenorphine/naloxone strips soon.
Will the price come down any further?
While the price of the Mylan buprenorphine and naloxone strip is very affordable compared to the Indivior brand, it is still not as cheap as many generic medications. It is possible to get generic meds for other chronic conditions, such as high blood pressure, for just a few dollars a month. I look forward to the day that this life-saving medication can be purchased at any pharmacy at a price that anyone can afford.
