Hello folks,

I'm new to this forum and so far I have been really encouraged by the genuine compassion and considered advice I've experienced.

I'm currently in day 4 of my attempt to switch to Subutex from Methadone. You can read a bit more about it here other-option-than-this-t9184.html?uid=12997

Anyway, prior to me trying this switch I had considered going for Ibogaine treatment. It's currently legal in the UK and there are a number of seemingly good practitioners to choose from. My discussions with the Ibogaine people determined that I would have to reduce my dose of Methadone before I undertook the 3 day treatment.

My question is, has anyone ever tried Ibogaine whilst on Bupe and if so, how successful was the treatment?

I am currently in two minds whether to continue with my Methadone abstinence and planned Sub switch or go back to a lower Meth dose in the hope of trying to switch after my house move and once I'm settled into my new job. Again, you'll get a better picture of my situation on my other thread.

Either way, I intend to undertake the Ibogaine treatment as I am very interested in it's therapeutic benefits, both physically and psychologically.

I'm interested to hear your experiences or thoughts...

Steven :-)

Hey Steven,

It's my understanding that Suboxone to Ibogaine is not a straight line. Most providers will have you switch over to a short acting opiate for up to 3 weeks to clear the Suboxone from your system.

For a time, I was interested in Ibogaine treatment, too. I had already quit Suboxone and had been off it for a short while when I started to hear more and more about Ibogaine. In the end, I decided against Ibogaine because of the tremendously powerful "trip" it puts you on.....and this is coming from a guy who loved tripping on acid while younger.

Research Ibogaine well before you commit to it. There are a few threads somewhere on this forum from folks who did Ibogaine (positive results from what I remember), use the search function to try and find the threads. If you can't find the threads, let me know and I'll search for them.

Be kind to yourself. Our character defects do NOT define who we are!
