> Hi, I have a question regarding Buprenorphine. I've researched it a bit, and I am almost positive that it will help with my depression and/or anxiety. I've also found that even if it doesn't work, the drug doesn't pose much risk.
> I am currently awaiting a repeat test result to confirm that I have low testosterone, after which my primary doctor will prescribe TRT, though not for another three weeks.
> I would like to call and ask both my current doctor and previous psychiatrist to consider prescribing Buprenorphine as soon as possible. I never mentioned pain being an issue to either, so the reason would be depression and anxiety.
> Pseudoname, you said that you showed your doctor some literature, and received the drug. How should I go about persuading them to prescribe this? I plan to call both today and simply ask, but if they say no, what type of evidence or literature should I show them to convince them?
> I plan to provide proof that he is in fact allowed to prescribe it, since it seems some doctors believe they are not allowed. I will bring the study of ten people with depression. I will find some reputable sites that show that bupe is fairly safe with a low potential for abuse. I'll let him know that I am on Klonopin, and have never allowed myself to form an addiction to it or any other drug.
> Anyone have any other ideas? Thanks!

Sadly, pseudoname is no longer with us, and so he will not be able to answer your questions.
