Actually, buprenorphine is a partial mu-opioid agonist. Furthermore, research on kappa-antagonism shows its potential for treating depression, so this component of buprenorphine may well play a role. Lastly, buprenorphine's metabolite norbuprenorphine is a delta-agonist, which may as well contribute to buprenorphine's antidepressant potential.
