Hi, Phillipa.

> How does that med that is for opiod addicts work? Does it make you feel the same way the percocet did for me?

Yeah, that's the one I take: buprenorphine (Subutex) is usually given to opioid addicts in recovery. I've never taken any other opioid, so I don't know how it compares. I don't feel buzzed or high on it at all. On it, I'm just not depressed, and my usual depressive train of thoughts doesn't occur. My usual train of thoughts is like a train that runs off a cliff! Those bad thoughts don't happen for me on buprenorphine and my mood is dramatically improved without the dulling or flatness people can get on SSRIs.

Bupe does have a black-market street value, but I think it's to people who abuse other opioids. I don't know if anyone would abuse bupe alone.

It's a darn shame that doctors are so reluctant or afraid to prescribe it for depression. I guess I'm really lucky. (Finally!)
