After tons of calling swim finally has an appointment to get subutex from a doctor. Now when swim was in detox he received pure buprenorphine
IM injections which seemed pretty pleasant but only in small doses. So swim was wondering if there was a difference in the medications that users of Suboxone and Subutex have actually felt... And what is all this hype about people IVing pure bupe in europe?? Is it actually any good if you have the pure buprenorphine as opposed to the bupe/nalaxone combo?
The Naloxone in Suboxone has nothing to do with any of the negative effects you mentioned. Switching over to Subutex instead of Suboxone wouldn't make any difference.
Also, I don't know what you're talking about with what's the hype about people IV'ing pure Bupe in Europe, cause I've never even heared of it, so I'm shure it isn't a hype in Europe. Maybe it is in some country, but a European country is a European country, it doesn't represent the whole continent of Europe. I know that in Slovakia, if I'm not mistaken(might be a neighbouring country), recreational use of Subutex/Suboxone, is very popular among youth or even general population, but only snorting
/sublingual administration is reported, no IV use. Do you have any good proof or statements to confirm this? Cause I'm curious about it.
