When I could sit and tell one of the docs at my pain specialists' office that I used opiates partly due to Hep C and more importantly because they work very effectively for pain, and not wanting to use anything more toxic, like Bup, prefering not to risk such toxic stuff on my liver, he STILL told me "here's a brochure for Bup/Nal, and I think you should think about switching to it," I'm amazed that the propaganda against opiates is so great that even a doc who should know better didn't/doesn't. That stuff scares the heck outta me, as do those pushing it.
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.
