Suboxone is a medication approved by the FDA to help people manage opioid use disorder (OUD). Without insurance, this medication can get expensive, making this OUD treatment inaccessible for some. Thankfully, Suboxone is also available in generic form, significantly lowering the treatment cost. Knowing what generic Suboxone strips look like can help ensure that your medication is authentic. You should also be sure only to access Suboxone treatment from a qualified provider and obtain your prescription from a licensed pharmacy. This is crucial for your safety whether you use the brand name or generic Suboxone strips.
