"Buprenorphine is an opioid, and thus can produce typical opioid effects and side effects such as euphoria and respiratory depression, its maximal effects are less than those of full agonists like heroin and methadone."

I read this on the NAABT.org site and now I'm more confused than ever. The sentence talks of Bupe's maximum effect, which I am assuming is the ceiling effect. So how can they say that Buprenorphine is so much stronger than morphine?

I'm more confused than ever....lol

And I can say I've never felt an euphoria while using Suboxone, which is primarily composed of Buprenorphine.
