Rats in withdrawal love rapastinel (RATpastinel?)

A drug that scientists originally developed to treat depression may have promise for the treatment of opioid withdrawal, researchers say. A new experimental drug may help reduce opioid withdrawal symptoms. Opioid withdrawal is a challenging experience, and although there are medications already on ...

Re: FDA approves non-opioid for withdrawal

It's been used in the UK for a long time. This study claims it to be more effective and useful than clonidine, mainly because it doesn't lower blood pressure to the same extent and as such it appears to be safer to be used in outpatient / home detox situations. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11...

Re: What made methadone better than buprenorphine for you?

The only real benefit for methadone for me was the fact it's a lot easier to consume. You just swallow a mouthful of liquid and you're done, unlike Suboxone where you have to have gunk sitting in your mouth for a while. Methadone tastes yuck, but it tastes a lot better than Suboxone. Negatives of me...

Re: 30 days off after 7 years on

Anyways, I currently have 72 days off ALL drugs, and I think nearly 5 months off of suboxone. It was 72 days ago that I finished having a bit of a relapse on cocaine of all things. Was in the bar scene and just mixed with the wrong people. Thankfully I was doing NA and therapy at the time so I was ...

Re: Swallowed the tab whole!

I trialled the opposite once or twice, and left my dose sitting under my tongue for up to an hour, then spat out the remaining ..subliva... And I absorbed nowhere near as much as I would normally if I let it dissolve then swallowed. This to me is an indicator that we do still absorb a fair amount af...

Re: Internal temperature messed up

I noticed this when I switched from methadone to buprenorphine. Hot flushes and sweats that took quite a while to subside - a few months.

Re: Bye bye Suboxone

It sounds to me that the cultures and rules for methadone clinics vary a LOT from state to state, country to country. I'd be pretty certain that the politics surrounding drug-replacement in Finland and other Scandinavian countries are significantly different to those in the USA.

Re: Attn men with sex drive/ED issues.

I was on a low dose of methadone for a while last year and it didn't affect my libido. My partner and I were having sex nearly every day while I was on 30mg's. It was only when I went above 30mg's a day that it curbed my libido. Mind you I was a bit hypomanic as well, which no doubt played a role in...

Depends on how long your hair is I suppose. Once it's in your hair, it doesn't come out.

Re: Fast ways to lower tolerance

By far the quickest way to reduce your tolerance is to take a mu-opioid antagonist like naltrexone or nalmafene. I wouldn't recommend it though. Not one bit. :lol:

Re: Attn men with sex drive/ED issues.

I've noticed significantly less sexual side-effects since I've started depot injection buprenorphine. It's possible that taking bupe via depot leads to different rations of metabolites, ie less norbupe etc. Maybe that's why?

Just thought you guys should know.

Cause of death: Unknown

I just watched this documentary, and for those of us who've done the psychiatric polypharmacy thing, it's quite interesting! Definitely verges on the anti-psychiatry tip, and can be reductionist at times. But in my experience most documentaries are like that these days. https://www.cause-of-death-un...
