Buprenorphine for pain relief
I just started on Buprenorphine (opiod) for my severe neuropathy pain (feet, legs, hands, and arms). I started with a new pain management doctor who uses this drug a lot. Buprenorphine is supposed to be much less addicting and you don't build up a tolerance to it. So far it really helps take the edge off of my neuropathy pain. I also have severe neck and back pain, but it doesn't seem to help that as much. Right now I am only on a 1mg dose of the tablet (dissolve under your tongue). Has anybody else had experience with this drug? Nothing else has helped me (gabapentin, Lyrica, Elavil, etc.).
