Moonshine,

Hey its not a problem I had a chance to get on this trial and like I said I have got tons of info from this site so I feel I need to share what I know.

I'm like alot of others on here Oxy works the best for me .

I will keep updating everyone of any changes in dose and other info.

If anyone has any questions I will answer as best I can.

cgm,

 

BuTrans is approved for use in the US. It was approved in July for distribution by Purdue.

medic008,

OUTSTANDING!!  Went to the website, great information.

I called Purdue and spoke with one of their pharmacists.  I was told that in the US, BuTrans (CIII) is authorized for use in pain management and DOES NOT require the special "X"  DEA number.  However, the "X"  number is still required for all other forms of buprenorphine.

BuTrans is the only preparation of buprenorphine allowed for use in the treatment of pain.  All others (Suboxone, Subutex, generic buprenorphine, etc) still can only be used for the treatment of opioid dependence.

Hopefully, with more patients using the BuTrans, the FDA/DEA will relax their view on the other buprenorphine preparations.  But, I have given up long ago trying to figure them out.

Again, thanks for the information.

cgm

No problem, always trying to

No problem, always trying to help out a fellow pharmer!

 

And I agree, the tight regulation on Suboxone/Subutex/bupe is a little over the top. There should be a lot more access to that "life saving" medication.

Trial Study

Thanks for your post it helped me alot, I start the same thing next week, was on Butrans patch which were excellent, but lost my insurence and the patches are very expensive. I am also getting free meds for 12 months. I must have my pain controlled and this seems like a blessing an oppruntunity to help release and varify good medications that can't be abused by crushing and [censored]. So the Neltrexone just goes unused? Have you had any adverse effects from the nelrextone? Thats the only thing I am concerned about. Well thanks again. Lets keep in touch about whats going on if you want.

Peace

Thanks

I certainly appreciate all of you sharing, I was searching for info as I start the oxy-neltex study next week. Was a bit concerned about the neltextone seems like this will really help abuse. I was on Butrans 10mcp but lost my insurence, so my nice Doctor got me in this study. Works for them and me and hopefully will deter those who have potential to abuse. This will allow some doctors some relief in prescribing these meds also.

Thanks again everyone!

Butrans

Butrans Patch works great not for the full 7 days, and very expensive. Thats way I had to switch, but if you can swing it do it!

Antisocial,yep was on Butrans

Antisocial,

yep was on Butrans for two months 10mcp it works great for around the clock pain control, However, it is expensive and does not last 7days. You may have trouble w/to soon refils due to the patch not lasting and doctors and Pharms are really funny about filling narcotics early.

hope this helped!

Guineapiggy,

Yes I am in the same boat no ins. so I have to pay out of pocket for meds. I have been on this since Feb and it is working really well. I have had no side effects at all. As of matter of fact I feel great because I dont take any APAP anymore. It is working very well and I now take a 30mg AM and 30mg PM dose.

You should see the tiny beads in your stool this is normal and means the pills are working fine. So no side effects and yes the Naltrexone is unused thats why you will see the bead in the stool its the beads left over with the Naltrexone in it.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

unit20,

Thanks for your help and putting me at ease. Had my blood test done yesterday it has been about 3 months since I have had bloodwork so it was due. I do have HepC and I am hopeN my enzemes are not sky high if so I have more trouble than my pain, but I do have lots of pain in my joints due to my hep c .....I am greatful for a medication that deters abuse, because I have fell into that once before and it nearly runied my life. I have been back on tract for over a year, so I feel super safe and happy I can take something that I can't even abuse. People with pain more than not fall into heavy addiction for various reason(tolerence, fear...etc, I am sure you can relate.

Peace-and Thank You again!
