addiction to meds

Buprenorphine also can be addictive, as, I suppose, can any mu agonist. How do you think the two drugs compare to each other in this regard? Or to, say, Xanax? (A lot of people with panic disorder complain that their doctors refuse to prescribe Xanax on the grounds of "addiction" potential. Even people who don't have any history of substance abuse.)

Ultram's advantages over buprenorphine are: available in pill form in U.S.; easier to find (it's commonly used so pharmacies are likely to have it in stock); more is known about it since it's used more; mild 5-HT and NE reuptake inhibition as well as opiate receptor binding.

By the way, I don't seem to get "high" from opioids (codeine etc. as well as buprenorphine). The only drug that I'd say makes me euphoric is Ambien, but I don't think I've ever abused or been dependent on that.
