It's my understanding that buprenorphine is a partial opiate agonist. It therefore works like any other opiate up to a certain dosage but after that it starts working as an opiate antagonist. It's therefore self limiting which is why it is used to treat opiate addicts. Someone with a better handle on the pharmacology, please post and corect any errors.
