Why not just give buprenorphine on an outpatient basis for OCD? I wish most psychiatrists would get it through their skulls that the opioid system is intimiately involved in many forms of mental illness. If we wish to treat mental illnesses properly, as a society we MUST get over our "opioiphobia". Not to mention that if you ask anyone who's kicked an opioid and kicked an SSRI which withdrawal syndrome was worse, I'd bet $20 they'd pick the SSRI. Opioids may produce a more intense reaction, but even the worst opioid withdrawal does not last as long as SSRI withdrawal does. when I miss a dose of Parnate, I feel way more uncomfortable than if I miss a whole day's worth of buprenorphine. Granted, bupe's halflife is longer, but I'm writing this as a reaction to all of the people who think that opioids are "addictive and habit forming" and that ADs are not.
