Buprenorphine - Tablet or film form?
I am currently on daily Methadone maintenance of 45ml per day. Over the next three weeks I am dropping 5ml per week until I am on 30ml at which stage they can begin to titrate me on to Subutex.
Could anybody recommend whether I should go onto the tablet or the film form? From internet research and watching videos, I tend to think I'd prefer the films.
If anybody has any experience in this I would love to hear any opinions. I am very new to Buprenorphine and have next to no experience with it. I barely knew what it was until a few weeks ago when my drug worker explained and recommended it to me.
I currently have depression, extreme social phobia and a lack of motivation, so my drug worker believes Buprenorphine will be the better option for me. I have had a very hard time coming off Methadone with suicidal thoughts with deep depression and apparently Buprenorphne is alot easier to come off, with a "clearer" head and more motivation. I despise Methadone and want to be opiate free asap.
Any and all advice would be appreciated :)
