Hello to all! I have just created a sticky thread for those wishing to post questions or experiences regarding buprenrophine (and only buprenorphine). However, I have a question which is only tangentially related to that. Does anyone have stories of their lab rat having experience with both methadone AND buprenorphine (Subutex/Suboxone) for maintenance or detoxification from opiates/opioids? Obviously this would not be concurrent administration of both drugs, I would just like to create a thread where people could compare the pros and cons of each drug when deciding what route to take when they want to get off opiates. I am wondering about... 1. The whole of the experience. Which drug seemed to help more with controlling withdrawal symptoms and cravings? Which drug was easier to remain using regularly without slipping up? 2. What are some pros and cons of each drug? Was You using the drug for maintenance or detoxification, in each case? 3. How long had You been using opiate prior to treatment? How long did treatment take, in each case? Any anecdotes, opinions, etc. on the matter would help too, I want to make this thread a resource for people who want to either get on maintenance or taper off of opiates and make the decision that would be right for them.
