Hi gang! So I've been delighted to have this generic, but for the last two months my pharmacy tried to order it and all they are told is that it's out stock. Anyone else ever have this issue?

Yes. Exactly the same issue that I'm facing. Either I have to pick brand name RB/Indivior, or I am stuck with the dr reddy's which presented some very unique things out of my 12 years in maintenance doses. I've explained what the dr reddy's did some, but to keep it short, lets just say that crap dont work for me. I was actually finding myself craving the taste of that medicine. Like..it was a feeling of being thirsty, except thirsting for the taste of the medicine (only with dr reddy's). I couldn't take enough...
Now that I've been back on the brand name for about 3 weeks...it's been SO much better.
My problem is how I have to get the brand because of insurance. Either it's paying $245 for a month's fill...or, I have to get 22 days worth with insurance and RB discount card, then back for 5 days worth on just insurance alone, then get another 22 days with insurance and RB discount. Rinse, repeat.

It saves me a good bit of money to do it this way..but it increases my trips to the pharmacy...

And if they could get the Sandoz, I could go back to getting a full 28 days at once...but it's always out of stock.

Hey Johnathan how ya been? Same here, been having to buy brand at two something like you said, but I have no choice. Dr reddy did nothing for me, or alvogen. I stopped at the pharmacy today to drop off my new prescription, the pharmacist said he would call again, I haven't heard anything back from him so maybe it's good news. Im tired of spending 3 times the amount.

I had the same luck with Dr Reddy's...The Alvogen was all i could get this month...because of the pharmacy's screw-up...

The Alvogen does seem to be a bit better than Dr. Reddy's. But, I think I'll go back to the brand unless Sandoz is available.

So the pharmacist had no luck, had to buy brand. I just paid off my car, but with this med price every month, i'm spending that money anyways. I was able to find an email address for indivior, which is also the maker of sandoz, so I contacted them about this and asked if they could give me any information. Of course I got no reply. How is alvogen doing for you? Is that the one in the yellow box?

Yes, it's in a yellow packaging too. They seem to work...I don't have the cravings like I did with Reddy's. But I would still prefer the Sandoz or just stick to RB. It just seems like nobody else has the formulation and the fillers the way Indivior does for RB brand and Sandoz brand.

I used the original films for 3 years, then generic tablets for 2 years and then got stuck with generic films. I've used Dr. Reddy's, Alvogen, Mylan and Sandoz. The Sandoz brand are the best. Come to find out, they are made by Indivior UK, who make Suboxone, so that's why they're good.
If you are having issues with generic films, there's a site I found that has lots of people complaining about the generics. People hate these things and are having serious issues with Dr. Reddy's and Alvogen. I didn't mind Dr. Reddy's, but the Alvogen were complete crap. Other people seem to agree - take a look: https://www.suboxnashville.com/generic- ... ys-santoz/

Sorry for late reply. I just read that indivior contacted their partner sandoz, to cease production. That's just great. I finally found a generic that is equal and it stops within a year. I've also read the complaints on alvogen and dr Reddy, anyone try Mylan?
