Treating Opioid Use Disorder with Sublocade
About five million people suffer from opioid addiction in the USA alone. Responsible for nearly 17,000 deaths annually, opioid abuse has emerged as a pervasive health problem in our society. But thankfully, recovery from opioid use disorder, or OUD, is possible through modern medical treatments. One such advanced treatment methodology for OUD is the medication-assisted treatment using Sublocade.
Sublocade is a prescription-based, extended-release Buprenorphine injection shot used to treat mild to severe OUD levels in adults. The medication is known to prevent opioid cravings and fight withdrawal symptoms that may result from suddenly stopping opioid intake. Sublocade is considered by the medical community as one of the most effective treatment procedures to treat individuals suffering from opioid dependence.
Since Sublocade is a schedule III controlled substance, it can be extremely dangerous in case of misuse or overuse. Hence, the drug generally comes with specific rules of prescribing and dispensing it, thus demanding specially trained & certified experts for reliable treatment. Additionally, Sublocade shots cannot be administered by the patients themselves as the medication is provided to OUD patients at approved Sublocade centers only.
What to expect from Sublocade treatment?
As a prescription-based medication, Sublocade injections are given to patients only once a month by a certified Sublocade doctor. Before switching to the Sublocade shot, you need to take a form of buprenorphine for a minimum of seven days. This administration of buprenorphine controls your withdrawals, thus prepares you physically and mentally for the Sublocade treatment. In case of allergies, the medication is stopped.
Sublocade treatment may exhibit some initial side effects, like a little drowsiness, lethargy, slow reactions, etc. However, in case of allergic reactions to Sublocade, the drug can cause a little more complicated symptoms, like hives, itching, dizziness, wheezing, swelling of the face, lips, tongue and throat.
