Hi erict84,
Buprenorphine is not known to cause liver damage when taken in typical doses. However for those who already have a compromised liver buprenorphine and all other medications should be taken cautiously and liver should be checked periodically. In general, buprenorphine is safer than the opioids people become addicted to, particularly prescription opioids with Tylenol in it. Here's a page about the most common side effects of bupe: http://www.naabt.org/buprenorphine-side-effects.cfm

welcome to Addiction Survivors!
Tim
