> I've been off the bupe for 10 days, and the breathing problem has continued. However, the depression has NOT returned! Not once. That is stunning. I seem to have flipped from being depressed to being anxious. I think the anxiety was always there, just neatly suppressed by depression.
Are you going to stop using buprenorphine completly now? And also have you felt any symptoms of withdrawal? I guess not since it's been 10 days and you say you aren't feeling depressed. The WD's from bupe are usually mild but can last pretty long compared to shorter acting opioids. Most people say it's over within 2 weeks. For me the wd's feel like a slight depression and mild fatigue but it is very easy to handle.
