Keep in Mind Belbuca Rxs Don't Need a Special "X" DEA Number

The new Belbuca (bel-BYOO-kuh, buprenorphine) buccal film will join the Butrans patch as an option for treating chronic pain.

Ensure Belbuca is dispensed correctly when it's needed.

Expect patients who haven't been on an opioid to start with Belbuca 75 mcg once or twice daily...then titrate to BID dosing at higher doses as needed for pain relief.
