Over the course of more than 20 yr of clinical studies with buprenorphine, the tendency is for increasingly higher doses to be used. However, referring to such doses as “high” or “low” is a matter of relative comparison. A final point regarding the use of the term high-dose buprenorphine should be noted. Referring to a dose as low or high can suggest that the dose is ineffective (low) or excessive (high). In this respect, referring to high and low doses should be avoided. In the treatment of opioid dependence, what is necessary is the effective dose—the dose that produces the best outcomes for the patient, with minimal adverse effects.
