The government was about to approve solo buprenorphine when it learned at the last minute that certain Asian Indians would sit in a circle to enjoy a shared experience: to inject buprenorphine. That is when naloxone was added.

Years before that, when I was a medical resident at Harlem Hospital Center in the early 1970s, it was well known that heroin addicts would also sit in a circle to inject, making sure that the person with yellow eyes was last to inject.

So many things wrong with that article, where do you start?

"Designer" drug?
Supply comes from France?
Use heroin to get off of Subutex?

Return to “Clinical Use of Buprenorphine”
