Can you get high by taking more Suboxone?

Can you get high by taking more Suboxone?

I have studied Pharmacology and Biology but I am not a medical doctor and this should not be taken as medical advice, just my opinion based on my experience.

Buprenorphine, also known as Subutex and an active ingredient in Suboxone, is both an opioid agonist (Meaning it binds to and stimulates the opioid receptors) and an opioid antagonist (meaning it stops other opioids from binding to opioid receptors and stimulating them). 

It is much more the latter than the former. If you do get any sort of “High” from it it is only initially when you still have a low tolerance for the drug and even then the high is very mild and not even comparable to the kind of high you would get form a full opioid agonist like Heroin, Fantenyl or OxyCodone.

Subutex is such an effective drug for treating opioid addiction because it tricks the mind into believing it is still getting the opioid it is craving without providing any kind of intense euphoric high while at the same time blocking any other opioids you might take after taking Buprenorphine from effecting you in any way. 

Plus after you take about 32 mg in a day of Subutex your at full saturation and if you take anymore it will not provide any more effect unlike other full opioid agonists that you can just take and take and take until your…well…dead. So it is very hard if not nearly impossible to overdose on Suboxone or Subutex.
