2mg buprenorphine is a *lot* unless you're an addict taking it for maintenance! I take 0.3mg (1 mL Buprenex) q.i.d. and I know if I took 2mg at once it would make me sick to my stomach!
Maybe it's not absorbed as well by the sublingual route? (I take it by IM injection)
As far as side effects.... It's mildly stimulating for me, not sedating, it gives me "the itchies," also causes dry mouth and constipation. No high.
With respect to pain, it works quite well (for ordinary day-to-day pain, like cramps, etc.), with no tolerance (and I've been on it for years).
