However, there are factors that can affect the cost of illegally purchased Zubsolv.
What Affects The Cost Of Zubsolv On The Street?
Zubsolv is not as expensive as other buprenorphine medications because Zubsolv also contains naloxone.
Abusing this drug by snorting or injecting Zubsolv will activate the naloxone, reversing the desired effects of the opioid.
According to research, Zubsolv costs almost 20 percent less than pure buprenorphine, such as Suboxone, sold on the street.
Other factors that affect the cost of Zubsolv on the street may include:
- geographic location
- socioeconomic status of area
- demographics within the area
- access to healthcare
- time/season of year
- buying in bulk
- drug availability vs. demand
Buying Zubsolv To Treat Opioid Withdrawal Vs. Other Uses
One common factor that affects the cost of Zubsolv is what the person is using it for.
If a person is abusing Zubsolv to keep them from going into opioid withdrawal, they may be willing to pay more for the medication.
However, a person who is purchasing Zubsolv illegally to attempt to stop abusing other opioids may purchase more tablets, lowering the overall cost.
