Chairman_MAO,

But is it easier to kick than oxy? I experienced the withdrawal symptoms, accidently when I used more than prescribed and ran out and my pain doc was unavailable and ended up going to urgent care where they gave me just enough until my pain doc returned. I was out only a day and already had the DT's. I was both freezing and burning up at the same time, sweating, unable to sleep as my body could not keep still and I felt the need to jump right out of my body if I could. I hope buprenorphine is no where close to oxy's withdrawals. Any additional info will be appreciated. Thanks.

> It's the most effective there is unless you'd require above 40mg/day methadone, in which case buprenorphine hits its "ceiling effect" and you'd need to use methadone. Actually, methadone is probably just as hard to kick as oxycodone, so ask your doctor what to do.
