What Does A Zubsolv Dosage Look Like?

The sublingual – quick-dissolving Zubsolv tablets come in six different buprenorphine/naloxone dosages respectively (0.7 mg/0.18 mg – 8.6 mg 2.1 mg).

The recommended “target maintenance dose” of Zubsolv is 11.4 mg/2.9 mg as a single daily dose of buprenorphine/naloxone.

However, a safe Zubsolv maintenance dose is between 2.9 mg /0.71mg and 17.2mg/4.2mg of buprenorphine/naloxone per day. The drugmaker has not found daily dosages exceeding 17.2 mg /4.2 mg to be of any additional benefit.

After three days on Zubsolv, a medical provider may adjust dosages up or down in 2.9 mg/ 0.71 mg dosages. This drug can be taken as a long-term or short-term aide as deemed necessary.
