I haven't read the whole thread, but here's your solution: take it _four times per day_. The drug has complex pharmacodynamics. Forget about the terminal elimination half-life in this context.

And why only .5mg? The general rule is to use the least amount of drug possible, of course, and 0.3mg qid has been used in psychiatry.

Word on the street is 4mg qid is much better--and just for kicks, before you escalate the dose, get a prescription for memantine if you want the most robust effect possible.

"Suboxone, which I understand has a roughly thirty hour half-life, typically improves my mood for the first part (say, six or eight hours) of the first day, before leveling off [...]"

See? You answered your own question. I'm zonked right now, but I could explain this in more detail at another time if you're interested.
