> i've got the 0.2mg sublingal

That's not much, but then, the sublingual formulation is almost exclusively used for addiction (addicts need much higher doses, like up to 16 mg).

Try 0.1 mg, that's all I can think of.

> i went to see the doctor today, she didn't have a clue. She said i'd might as well be taking heroin.

She's *so* wrong. If nothing else, the risk of any serious consequences of ODing on buprenorphine is very small.

Here's a link to Bodkin et al.'s article. It discusses the safety and low abuse potential of buprenorphine, among other things:

People who are truly "addicted" don't lead normal lives. Thing is, you're unlikely to get addicted to buprenorphine (although the risk is increased by using it without a doctor's supervision).

> So i asked to be refered to a specialist.

That was smart. What sort of specialist?

> I still don't think there's much chance i'll get bup on prescription.

Good luck to you, anyway. What country are you in? (I think I might have asked you this before but I don't recall the answer.)
