Bupe seemed like a mixture between a mild opiate and a mild-moderate antidepressant (but not of the SSRI type). It definitely decreased ruminative thoughts and worrying in general. If you've responded well to painkillers in the past (Percocet, codeine, etc.), you'll probably like the Buprenorphine, unless you are a recent addict, in which case you might find it ineffective or unpleasant, or so I've heard. Another difference between Buprenorphine and codeine is that it doesn't seem to cause as much dysphoria.

For social phobia, the jury's still out. I only used it for 4 days due to severe stomach cramps and diarrhea issues. This may have been a result of mixing the bupe with Proglumide, which is a gastric receptor antagonist.

Anyway, like I posted before, I am going to take only the Proglumide for the next 7-12 days to isolate the physical and psychological effects of that drug. Then I will do the same with buprenorphine. Once I am satisfied about what each particular drug is doing, I will post a more informative follow-up.
