Buprenorphine, methadone, and testerone

A member at the buprenorphine forum wrote about his own health issues including hormonal imbalances, prompting me to do a literature search on buprenorphine and testosterone.    I found a couple interesting studies and invite people to visit the forum and read about them, and comment if you wish.  To find the comment thread, just go to the bottom of the first page and the ‘index’ will list the new topics.
Oh– and please consider signing up while you are there.  Feel free to use an alias to maintain confidentiality.  Our numbers are growing, and the forum is open for anyone– including friends and family members of opiate addicts, or even people who only have an interest in the topic of opiate dependence.  We ask only one thing– that those who are looking to debate whether or not buprenorphine maintenance is ‘good’ or ‘bad’ take it outside.  Addicts have enough shame to digest already, and this is one place where the need for chronic treatment is a given.

A quick addendum– a reader had trouble finding the articles– they are at this link.
