suboxone "film" warning/addiction medicine show details suboxone "film" warning/addiction medicine
by Take a wild guess on Feb 9th, 2015

Along with Optometry, this doctor practices addiction medicine. When she wrote the prescription for suboxone 8mg/2mg, She informed my friend that they were allowed to get the generic version and get partial fills. This is false. Dr. Nicola wrote on the prescription "suboxone 8mg/2mg film" and signed in the space provided to allow a generic prescription BUT, because she wrote the word FILM the patient is not allowed to get generic tablets. As of this date there are no generics for suboxone film! So when the patient tries to call to get this changed to be able to afford it, the patient is informed that they have to wait until the next appointment to change the wording for a generic option. BULLSH1T All it would take is a phone call to the pharmacy so that the patient can have a affordable option but TIME IS MONEY, right? Walgreens WILL NOT allow partial fillings of suboxone and are the cheapest option. CVS is the pharmacy that the doctor will suggest to get your prescription filled and they will do the partial fills. Cvs is $103 more expensive than walgreens. Please stop lying to patients on their first visit. Maybe she didn't intentionally lie but the fact that the prescription can't be changed to generic until the next visit is absurd. I would think it would be beneficial to the practice to make sure the patient could afford the 2 week follow up fee of $175 by making sure they had access to the generic option as provided by the doctor!
