do opioids make anyone anxious?

I know some recreational drugs can end up making people feel more anxious. Is that true of opioids?

I was prescribed buprenorphine (Subutex) for depression and it worked! (Yea!) But after 6-8 weeks on it, I developed an anxiety problem where I felt I couldn't breathe.

My G.P. took me off the buprenorphine. About 2 weeks later, the anxiety problem had subsided. I've since taken smaller doses of the bupe because the depression returned. Now the anxiety/breathing problem has returned again.

There's NOT a strong correlation between me taking the bupe and becoming anxious, but there is a slight correlation.

Do you think bupe could cause anxiety or aggravate it? (I hope it's not that.)
