How and Where Can I Buy Suboxone Online?

Suboxone is a Schedule III drug approved for medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for people diagnosed with opioid use disorder (OUD). Until recently, you would have to visit a provider in person to obtain a Suboxone prescription. Times have changed, and you can now receive treatment for opioid use disorder online through telemedicine. This makes medication-assisted treatment more accessible than ever to those who need help. How can you get a Suboxone prescription online, and where can you purchase it? Learn how to safely get Suboxone online with the help of your physician or an online Suboxone clinic

Can I Buy Suboxone Online?

For optimal convenience, you can now order many medications online from the comfort of your home. The same is true for Suboxone. However, the method you use for ordering Suboxone online is important. Ordering Suboxone from a website that does not require a valid prescription can be risky. The only safe and legal way to get Suboxone online is by obtaining a prescription from your provider or online Suboxone doctors and either placing an order from a trusted pharmacy online or having your provider submit the script to your local pharmacy.

How to Get Suboxone Online

To experience the convenience of getting Suboxone online, follow the steps below.

1. Schedule an appointment with your provider or an online Suboxone doctor.

The only way to get a valid prescription for Suboxone is from a qualified Suboxone prescriber. Reach out to an online Suboxone doctor or your physician for a telehealth appointment.

2. Receive an assessment during your virtual appointment with your provider. 

You will meet with your provider through a convenient video chat. They will ask questions about your health history and opioid use history. From there, the provider can determine the best course of treatment for your recovery needs. 

3. Have your Suboxone subscription submitted to your local pharmacy.

If your provider decides to start you on a Suboxone regimen immediately, they may call in a prescription to your local pharmacy. Some online Suboxone doctors even partner with mail-order pharmacies to help those who need their medications delivered to their homes. Suboxone is only available at select pharmacies, and the team at your online Suboxone clinic can help direct you to local pharmacies that dispense the medication. 

Things to Consider When Buying Suboxone Online

Before buying Suboxone online, you should familiarize yourself with the uses and side effects of Suboxone. If you have any questions about your Suboxone prescription, be sure to consult with your provider. 

1. Use Suboxone as directed by your provider.

The goal of Suboxone is to minimize opioid withdrawal symptoms and reduce your cravings. Misuse of your medication can exacerbate these symptoms, so it is crucial that you follow your provider's instructions. If you find that your prescribed dosage of Suboxone isn't alleviating your cravings or your symptoms have worsened, reach out to your provider immediately for guidance. Your dosage may need to be adjusted, but you should only do this under your provider's direction.

2. Some side effects of Suboxone are similar to opioid withdrawal symptoms.

When you receive opioid medication-assisted treatment at home, it requires a little extra effort on your part to stay in touch with your provider. Since you will not be under the watchful eye of a treatment team as you would in an inpatient treatment program, you need to inform your provider about any side effects you experience while on your Suboxone regimen. Suboxone side effects may mimic opioid withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, headache, chills, insomnia, and constipation. The side effects may be mild but if they become too bothersome, be sure to consult with your provider for guidance.

3. Suboxone treatment should be used in conjunction with therapy.

Although Suboxone is a crucial component of your treatment plan to overcome opioid use disorder, it is just one part of your recovery. Medication should always be accompanied by therapy to ensure the most thorough treatment for any substance use disorder. If you enjoy the convenience of obtaining your Suboxone script online, you may also prefer to try virtual therapy. Teletherapy allows you to speak with a professional counselor via video chat. When you combine online Suboxone treatment with teletherapy, you can begin to address opioid use disorder at its root while minimizing withdrawal discomfort.

Frequently Asked Questions When Buying Suboxone Online

How much is a script of Suboxone without insurance?

As per the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA), many health insurance plans are now required to provide coverage for addiction treatment medications similar to what they would provide for other health conditions.

But what if you don't have insurance? When paying out-of-pocket, the cost of Suboxone will depend on several factors, including whether your prescription is for brand name or generic Suboxone, the strength of your prescription, whether you are using strips or tablets, and which pharmacy you use.

Without prescription drug coverage, you can use coupons or discounts to reduce the cost of your Suboxone prescription. The price ranges below are based on generic Suboxone with savings from GoodRx to help keep your medication affordable.

Suboxone Film (30 films)

These are the current price ranges for generic Suboxone films or strips: 

  • 2mg/0.5mg - $41-$69

  • 4mg/1mg - $67-$129

  • 8mg/2mg - $67-$80

  • 12mg/3mg - $134-$243

Suboxone Tablets (28-30 tablets)

These are the current price ranges for generic Suboxone tablets:

  • 2mg/0.5mg - $29-$50

  • 8mg/2mg - $30-$84

Remember that prices are subject to change and may vary based on location.

Can a teledoc prescribe Suboxone?

Yes, a teledoc or online Suboxone doctor can write you a prescription for your medication. If a provider offering telemedicine is a qualified Suboxone provider, they can meet with you online for an assessment and prescribe Suboxone if applicable. 

Which is cheaper: Suboxone tablet or Suboxone film?

If you have health insurance, your plan will likely cover some or all of the cost of your Suboxone medication. Depending on your coverage, you may still be left paying a portion of the bill. When you're on a budget, you will want to know which form of Suboxone is more affordable. While Suboxone prices will vary based on the factors mentioned above, Suboxone tablets tend to cost less than the films. 

Who can prescribe Suboxone?

Guidelines released by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services in 2021 removed barriers to Suboxone care by exempting providers from time-intensive certification requirements to become qualified buprenorphine prescribers. State-licensed practitioners with a valid DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) registration can now prescribe medications containing buprenorphine to people diagnosed with opioid use disorder. Ask your provider if they qualify to prescribe Suboxone or look for reputable online Suboxone doctors to help connect you with Suboxone care.
