Just a word of caution. If you are currently taking the Oxy or any other pure agonist drug (morphine, fentanyl, hydromorphone, hydrocodone, oxymorphone, or methadone) and you put one of those buprenorphine patches on, you WILL GO INTO WD
Buprenorphine is a partial agonist/partial antagnoist. So, that would be very bad. Just go back and look at Steve's thread about his very horrible detox experience with the buprenorphine. I had a similar experience (also in that thread) with Nubain. Nubain and Stadol also fall into that drug category that will send anybody dependent on opioids into immediate w/d's. Just be careful, ok??
If you are thinking about doing this, you need to talk with your current doc first and see what he says. I'm just trying to look out for you. You DO NOT
want to experience that hell that Steve and I both landed in. Take care and bye for now.
