sublingual buprenorphine tabs (Subutex, Temgesic)

Posted by Elizabeth on December 15, 2001, at 9:51:25

Hey, I know a couple people out there have taken buprenorphine by the sublingual route. I wanted to ask a few questions, because lately I've been thinking it might be easier to get it this way (by ordering from Europe -- gotta look into the red tape that would be required, tho') than having to get the injectable solution in the US (using this intranasally is a real PITA, plus pharmacies always have to special-order it).

So my questions are:
1. How long does it take for the effect of the SL tabs to kick in after you take them? (It takes almost exactly one hour after I take it IN.)
2. How long do the effects last when it's taken SL?
3. How do you compute the approximate SL dose from the injected (IM) dose? (I'm going on the assumption that the IN route requires about the same dose as IM injection. This seems consistent, since the recommended IM doses are about the same as what I use.)

Thanks very much to anybody who can answer this one!
