It appears that higer doses than about 4 mg of buprenorphine yield little additional benefit, except for more effective blockade of the actions of other opioids such as heroin - this is one of the reasons why it is used as substitution therapy for addicts. For depression and pain, in all cases I've seen described, there seems to be little reason to exceed 4 mg.
