> I wonder if people would develop tolerance to such a low dose of buprenorphine, and, if so, how long it would take to develop. Since ultra-low-dose naltrexone can mitigate opioid tolerance, I wonder if the two drugs would work well together.

For opioid tolerance, memantine is another drug worth mentioning. Or ketamine?

Then again, these drugs are potent antidepressants in their own right.

As for naltrexone, I am skeptical, because buprenorphine has a long half-life and binds very tight to the opioid receptors. Seems to me they would interfere with one another.
