Treating Opioid Use Disorder with Buprenorphine
Even though opioid addiction is increasingly becoming a severe problem in our society, it is, in fact, treatable through a variety of modern medical methodologies. One such advanced medical process to treat opioid use disorder or OUD is through opioid substitution treatment methodology by administering Buprenorphine.
Buprenorphine is a part of Recovery Connection’s medication-assisted treatment for OUD. It is a synthetic opioid used as an alternative to actual opioids, stimulates the opioids receptors, and thus helps in reducing actual opioid dependence. The combination of Buprenorphine and naloxone is generally used to treat OUD as it prevents the euphoric feelings associated with opioid abuse.
What to expect from Buprenorphine treatment?
There are multiple ways to administer Buprenorphine as an OID treatment medication. It can be prescribed either as injections, skin patches or as implants. Placing the medication under the tongue or in the cheek until it dissolves is another common way of Buprenorphine administration. However, Buprenorphine is a prescription-based medication that may lead to critical side effects in case of misuse and hence requires certified experts for a controlled prescription. The side effects caused by an improper dosage of Buprenorphine may lead to certain complications like sedation, dizziness, headache, low blood pressure, slow breathing, constricted pupils, nausea, vertigo, sweating, and vomiting.
