Buprenorphine
Bits & Pieces
by Erowid

The "Bits & Pieces" section is intended for random snippets of information which don't fit
easily elsewhere and/or which have been newly added, but not yet carefully categorized.


  • Keeps Some People Awake
    Some people who take buprenorphine report that it can cause insomnia and sleeplessness if it is taken directly before bed. Because Buprenorphine is long acting, the mild stimulating effects can persist for many hours. [1-mu]

  • Dosage Notes
    600g is considered equivalent to 10 mg morphine for pain relief.

  • Taste
    We received reports in the early 2000s that sublingual tablets on the market tasted bad, but as of the late 2000s, Suboxone tablets are said to taste similar to chewable vitamins with a mediciney flavor.
