Hi Joaniej231, welcome. What dose are you taking? For some people also dealing with pain issues, splitting up their dose to take every 4 to 6 hours has helped. That's because the analgesic properties of buprenorphine last from 4 to 6 hours and seem to work better at lower doses (1 to 4mg). It also depends on the person and the type of pain.

That might be something to discuss with your doctor to see if it would help you.
