I'd like to add my two cents. I've been on Subutex for a year with very good help and no tolerance at all. I use 4 to 6 mg daily, sublingual in divided doses. The original study by Bodkin used very tiny doses more along the line of those used for pain as opposed to those used for addiction maintance (eg, about 1-2 mg max.)I didn't find enough help at these low doses and I didn't have a history of chronic opiate use. So the jury is still out on the optimum dose for depression, and it may be that some people need doses of 8 mg or more. If lower doses are not helping, I think you should talk to your doc about gradually escalating the dose. Don't give up on it prematurely! I do think, however, it is not quite as strong a pain killer as MS or oxy, for chronic treatment. I also use the Sub in conjunction with Zoloft and Wellbutrin which I think significantly augment it's antidepressant effect.
