    Sub is indeed an opiate. It's my understanding that naloxone does not block the bupe. It just blocks any full agonists. IE Oxy/Hydro. The naloxone will not interfere with your next sub dose whatsoever. Just take a look at your pupils after the next dose. Somebody help me out with the techinical info.

    I'm no expert either but the best stuff i've seen is ratchett's post in the permanent sticky (4th down) at the top of the bup/sub forum page (entitled: Buprenorphine/Sub -Questions and Answers). In fact, there's a lot of science mixed in/through those first 4 permanent stickies.

    Naloxone (AKA Narcan) has no known effect on buprenorphine

    thank you guys! iv'e tried everywhere to find out the logic behind naloxone and it's blocking agents. i also know that once you dose over 32 mg. the naloxone will cause withdrawl-like symptoms. so dont try to get "high" on suboxone.. enjoy the feeling as it is! thanx!
