The taste of Subutex is terrible, but you get use to it, atleast I did. I heard that some people use a strong mint on top of their tongues (like an Altoid) while the pill is dissolving, but I have never tried this.
My insurance (WA's medicaid) wont cover even the generic subutex, which is way cheaper then the brand. They cover Suboxone for a year, and thats it, their's no Ands, Ifs, or Buts about it...I hate how insurance decide what you need or don't need. They just don't wanna cover it cause of what's it's FDA approved for, and even though I take it off label for pain, you would think the goverment would be more willing to pay for things that help addiction, and then they wonder why so many people relapse and stay addicted, it's sad....but for pain control, I think it's worth paying the money out of pocket every month, eventhough SSI only gives me so much to live with... But thanks for the information.
