    This is just an odd question that swim was wondering if it were even possible. Does swiy by any chance know if there is a way to get the naloxone out of the suboxone in order to make it injectable?

    Its still injectable as it is, swim knows of no way to extract it.
    Naloxone wont effect the overall effect of buprenorphine.

    Erm YES IT WILL, if you already have opioids in your system, the naloxone will knock ALL of them off the opiate receptors and you will face a massive W/D.
    btw, does anyone know how to extract naloxone from Targinact?

    Well that's a no brainer. If you have no opioids in your system it wont effect anything.

    I specifically said it wont effect the bupe, which it doesn't!

    SWIM doesn't think that anyone has found a manageable way to remove the naxalone. If SWIY does a Google search for "shooting suboxone," SWIY can see that there is debate on whether the naxalone really acts as a deterrant to injecting

    AW: Re: Extracting naloxone from suboxone...

    SWIM would not try to extract anything from a pill...SWIM thinks that naloxone AND buprnorphine are both too strong µ-receptor agonists for s.o. on Smack or an other opioid..
    It happened to SWIM erratically to take buprenorphine cause he was so fucked up on diazepam he thought he had had the last dose of his methadone 4 days ago, SWIM tells you he got W/D so fine that he couldn't tell if it was arsehole or breakfast time..
