Default Subutex or generac in Canada? Help needed

I can't seem to find out if subutex or generic subutex is available in Canada.
My life is going good on suboxone. I'm down to 4mg a day, But I just can't handle the headaches!!!
In Canada suboxone is still in the pill form and I swear they changed the chemical in them within the last few weeks. I used to get headaches maybe once a week but am now getting them everyday!
As far as I can tell subutex or gen bube is not available in Canada.
If anyone knows different, please let me know.

Hi Ken, what is the pharmacist saying about it? I would hope they would know if it's available or not. I haven't heard anything either way.

I found this for Teva:

Canadian Drug Information Inquiries
English Inquiries: 1-800-268-4127 ext. 5005
French Inquiries: 1-877-777-9117
Fax number: 1-416-335-4472
(English and French Inquiries)

Here's a contact link with a place to email Roxane:

And the link to Hi-Tech:

But it look like Teva is the only one with a Canadian contact number.

For headaches, the easiest thing to check is if you're drinking enough water. Even slight dehydration can cause headaches. Are you spitting out the saliva after the pill dissolves - that can help.

Or, some people find that headaches are a signal to reduce their dose a little. How long have you been at 4mg?

Hope that's helpful.
