DOSE:
2 mg sublingual Pharms - Buprenorphine (pill / tablet)

BODY WEIGHT: 135 lb


I had been chasing heroin for about a year up until recently. I was put on a scrip to Subutex to aid me in getting off black (it really is a miracle cure).

I've been 3 months clean and had 1 pill left and decided to see if it would have any effect since my opiate tolerance had diminished. I took the pill sublingually (disolving under the tongue as recommended).

About 30 minutes to an hour later I began to feel the euphoric feeling I often get from freebasing heroin. I was calm and felt really good. About another 30 minutes later my skin began to flush, mainly in my face, and I started to get the rush I can normally get from a nice dose of opiates. I then had dinner with my family. I was kind of shakey, but not nervous. I think I just felt so good that my nerves were kind of on end. I continued to feel euphoric for another 3 or so hours. My eyes were glassy and my pupils constricted quite a bit. I felt as though I was smoking Black again.

I went to bed and had trouble falling asleep. Which I have never experienced with other opiates. I was quite surprised in my experience. I was not expecting it to be as intense as it was. I almost wish I had a few more left over.
