|Subject: Reckitt Benckiser no longer manufacturing Subutex Wed 26 Oct 2011, 6:16 pm|| |
I was recently informed by via email from one of our members, the makers of Suboxone and Subutex; Reckitt Benckiser has plans to discontinue making Subutex;
Statement from Reckitt Benckiser
“Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals Inc. is discontinuing distribution and sale of Subutex® tablets as we believe that mono product (product containing buprenorphine alone with no naloxone) creates a greater risk of misuse, abuse and diversion, and while other mono product may be available on the market, we are concentrating our efforts around less abusable products in order to protect patients, communities and access to treatment.”
For those of you who wish to view the statement online please visit the SAMHSA website for more information and read the letter that is being sent out to providers.
