Been on 12-8mg dilaudid for decades, tapering down to 120mg so far. Pain dr added 2mg SL Buprenorphine twice a day. Been using for 8 weeks. No problems at all. No withdrawal whatsoever. The added buprenorphine in combination with dilaudid works incredibly well for nerve pain. Am going to continue to taper dilaudid to a lower amount slowly. May or may not be on both for a long time. Will increase SL buprenorphine as I decrease dilaudid. Who knows, I may end up taking no dilaudid, but only if the nerve pain does not build up with a vengeance. Anyone else having the same benefit I have had taking both?

Buprenorphine tends to block the effect of other opiates in most people that take it, so I don't think you will find many people that have had as good of an experience as you.

However, since the Buprenorphine is an opioid, it does help some people with pain.

The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, constipation, and headache.

How are you doing, now? Has there been any change?

Re: VerFree (# 1)

I am doing better than I thought on both. Bumped up the SL Buprenorphine to 2-1/2-2mg SL Buprenorphine tablets daily and reduced hydromorphone by 4mg. Zero withdrawals, rather the SLB seems to fill spaces in the receptors that are available after the hydrpmorphone is taken. It has also allowed me to increase the time frame between taking the hydromorphone from 4 hours to 6 or 7.hours. I am sleep better and I have better control of nerve pain. I consider myself quite fortunate.
