Could you tell me what exactly your doctor writes that he is prescribing the bupe troches for? Of course I know docs can write for things off-label, but my doctor said that the *illegal* part of this is that you can't write a prescription for bupenorphrine in California for anything other than drug detoxification. I'm curious if your doctor dealt with that at all, and what he says the drug is indicated for in your case. Mine is a long story I don't want to get into detail about, and my diagnosis includes chronic pain. He wants to stay away from the Naloxone. Also yes, of course I can find a compounding pharmacy --my doctor told me about them--only, and this is the frustrating part, to be advised later not to go through with it. It's how it's prescribed that seems to be the hitch with him, not that prescribing it at all is illegal.
