> Are you going to stop using buprenorphine completly now?
Well, depression started to come back on the last two days, so I took 1 mg of buprenorphine right as those familiar foul thoughts started. Within about 90 minutes, bupe had removed those thoughts competely. So I guess I'll keep it on stand-by, at the very least. I haven't really talked to my pdoc about using both bupe AND Metadate.
> And also have you felt any symptoms of withdrawal?
Nothing! I was only on 3 mg/day, and I've only been taking bupe for 9 weeks altogether, so maybe I haven't had enough yet to get physiologically dependent?
> When i feel i have built a tolerance for [Concerta] i switch to Modafinil for a week then i go back to Concerta. They aren't causing any cross tolerance
Thanks for reminding me of that strategy. I will mention it at my next pdoc appointment.
I just took my first 10-mg dose of Metadate-CD. Pdoc prescribed 30 mg, but I don't want to start that high.

Interesting & appreciated, reefer!
