Hey MLC, glad you posted! Damn, I hear you about the energy...lethargy is a tough one to power through.
Maybe if you go up or down on your sub dose like Subblind said, you would get a better headspace from it. For me, taking small amounts every few hours worked so much better than mega doses once a day...I know people say it is 'addict behavior' to take it more than once, but that is bull shit,at least at small doses. My prescribing doctor didn't agree with it when I first started seeing her, but after awhile she totally reversed position. I really think it has to do with the different opioid receptors that bupe hits and there are so many weird variables, not to mention drastically varying brain chemistry between people.
I did read once that bupe at higher doses is better for depression, and lower doses is better for anxiety. It would be tricky to figure all this out if you have just come off H though, because it might depend on levels of norbupe, which build up over time.
I forget if you get bupe from a doctor or not, but is there any way you could try it without naloxone, or try something besides the type you are on? I just feel bad knowing it isn't keeping you from H, and since no doctor can prescribe you a sao for maintenance, you are stuck between street drugs and something that just ain't cutting it... and that sucks
All you have is your fire
And the place you need to reach
Don't you ever tame your demons
But always keep them on a leash
