Search for a safe and effective analgesic is long and elusive. Buprenorphine was marketed as a potent and non-addictive narcotic drug. In recent years there have been various case reports highlighting its abuse potential. As the drug will be used more widely and particularly with its use in the detoxification of heroin dependence there is an eminent possibility of its abuse at larger scale in future. Physicians should be careful in its prescription and cases of its abuse should be actively sought tor. A case report along with literature review is presented here.
