More interesting than you may have realized: Kevin, in all the discussions of safety in OD it never occurred to me that one of the reasons is that someone trying to OD with bupe is not likely to dissolve 33 tabs under their tongue! (Duh) Next thing we need you to find out is, assuming naloxone was administered, how much was used. You may have read at Sermo a comment yesterday indicating very high doses of naloxone are needed, presumably because bupe is more tightly bound. Thanks!
