Buprenorphine is an opioid having both agonist and antagonist actions. The 
manufacturer is Reckitt Benckiser and its use in the treatment of opioid 
dependence disorders was the result of a collaborative research and development 
agreement (CRDA) between NIDA and Reckitt Benckiser.   A principal advantage of 
buprenorphine over methadone is that it can be dispensed by a doctor writing a 
prescription rather than having to be dispensed out of a designated clinic as is 
methadone for the treatment of chemical dependence.   Both drugs can be Rxd 
for pain. A key issue of NIDA not choosing to develop ibogaine was their 
concurrent CRDA for buprenorphine development.

You might want to take a look at www.ibogaine.org/nycibogaforum.ppt which is 
a powerpoint slide presentation titled,  Patient Medication Acceptability and 
Treatment Options:
Ibogaine. Methadone. Buprenorphine.
