Generic Subutex has not been discontinued

Friday, July 16th, 2010

It has been brought to my attention that there have been rumors circulating that generic Subutex, manufacturered by Roxane Laboratories, had been discontinued.  We have been able to confirm that these rumors are not true.  Roxane Laboratories still produces generic buprenorphine in eight and two milligram dosages, and will continue to manufacture them.

Teva Pharmaceuticals will also start manufacturing (if they haven’t already) generic Subutex.  The drug information can be viewed here:  generic buprenorphine (Subutex) drug information.

On October 8th, 2009, Roxane Laboratories announced the approval of an AB-rated generic medication for the popular opioid replacement therapy drug, Subutex®. The active ingredient in Subutex® is buprenorphine HCl. The more popular Suboxone, a similar medication by Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals, still has no generic equivalent.

2 mg Buprenorphine HCl
8 mg Buprenorphine HCl
