We’ll also ask for details about your household income, insurance, and your healthcare provider. This is essential information needed by the pharmaceutical manufacturers that ship your medication.

Is Prescription Care a Suboxone coupon provider?

Prescription Care is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Suboxone patient assistance program. We are not a Suboxone coupon, a Suboxone discount card, or a Suboxone copay card. We don’t offer printable Suboxone manufacturer coupons, Suboxone discounts, rebates, Suboxone savings cards, trial offers, or free Suboxone samples.

Can Prescription Care help me get Suboxone if I have insurance?

We may be able to help if your insurance company won’t pay for your Suboxone medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. This also applies if you don’t have insurance.

How much is Suboxone with insurance?

The cost of Suboxone will vary depending on your healthcare plan. Remember, if you’re approved for the patient assistance program, you’ll likely save more if you get your Suboxone medication through Prescription Care.

How much is Suboxone without insurance?

Suboxone prices without insurance will vary depending on if you buy it as a tablet or a film. Other factors include how many tablets and films are in the pack and the dosage. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a general guide, you can expect to pay around $170 for a 14 pack of 8-2 mg tablets, or over $300 for a 30 pack of 8-2 mg oral films.

What is Suboxone?

Suboxone is a prescription medication used to treat opioid use disorder (OUD) in adults and adolescents over the age of 15. It can be used alongside other medical treatments as well as with psychological and social support. You usually take Suboxone as a tablet or a film you place under your tongue. The tablet or film dissolves and passes into your bloodstream.

Opioid use disorder is a condition where people become dependent on opioid drugs, like heroin, morphine, oxycodone, or fentanyl. You can experience an overwhelming desire to use the drugs and have distressing withdrawal symptoms when you don’t. OUD can significantly disrupt your life. It can make it hard to meet your obligations and can strain relationships. It can lead to illegal behaviors, like taking controlled drugs illegally, and it can damage your health.

Suboxone helps with OUD in two ways. It contains an opioid medication that can ease withdrawal symptoms and an ingredient that blocks the effects of opioids, including feelings of wellbeing. Used together, they can manage withdrawal and reduce feelings of dependence, helping you reduce and stop your opioid use.

Suboxone active ingredients

Suboxone contains two active ingredients, buprenorphine, and naloxone. 

Buprenorphine is an opioid, a medication that belongs to the same family as other drugs made from opioids, like heroin or oxycodone. When absorbed into your blood, it has a similar effect to these other opioid drugs. It attaches itself to areas in your body and brain called opioid receptors, reducing the pain signals they help to send. Because it acts like other opioid drugs, it can be used to treat opioid withdrawal symptoms. 

Naloxone is a drug that can block the effects of opioids like pain relief and feelings of wellbeing. When absorbed into your blood, it also attaches itself to your opioid receptors. Rather than acting like an opioid and blocking pain signals though, it competes for these receptors, stopping opioids from binding with them. This reduces the effects the opioids have on you.

Suboxone side effects & Suboxone drug interactions

The most common side effects Suboxone can cause include insomnia, headaches, constipation, nausea, excessive sweating, and drug withdrawal syndrome. In rarer cases, Suboxone can cause more severe side effects, including allergic reactions and liver damage.

These aren’t all the side effects Suboxone can cause. For a full list, see the leaflet that comes with your medication. 

When you take Suboxone with other medications it can change how Suboxone and the other medications work. Some side effects might become more likely. The following drugs are known or thought to interact with Suboxone:

  • Benzodiazepines, like diazepam and temazepam
  • Other opioid-containing medicines, like methadone
  • Anti-depressants
  • Sedative H1 receptor antagonists used to treat allergic reactions
  • Barbiturates
  • Tranquilizers
  • Clonidine, used to treat blood pressure
  • Anti-retrovirals used to treat HIV, like ritonavir
  • Antifungal medications, like ketoconazole and itraconazole
  • Medications used to treat epilepsy, like carbamazepine or phenytoin
  • Naltrexone and nalmefene, used to treat addictive disorders
  • Alcohol

Make sure you tell your prescribing physician about all drugs you’re taking. This includes vitamins and dietary supplements. 

Suboxone warnings & precautions

As Suboxone contains an opioid ingredient it can cause dependency. Always use Suboxone as directed by the physician that prescribed it to you.

Don’t take Suboxone if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredients buprenorphine or naloxone
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients found in Suboxone (listed in the leaflet which comes with the medication)
  • Are under 15 years of age
  • Have a serious liver problem
  • Have a serious breathing problem
  • Are intoxicated due to alcohol

Talk to your physician before taking Suboxone if you:

  • Have liver or kidney disease
  • Have asthma or other breathing problems
  • Have low blood pressure
  • Have brain disease or have suffered a head injury
  • Have thyroid problems
  • Have a urinary disorder
  • Have an adrenocortical disorder, like Addison’s disease
  • Are pregnant or trying to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding

Suboxone can cause side effects that can make driving or using machinery dangerous. Don’t drive or use machinery after taking Suboxone until you know how it affects you.

Don’t drink alcohol when you take Suboxone as it can make some side effects worse and can increase the risk of respiratory failure.

Don’t eat or drink until the tablet or film has completely dissolved.
