Buprenorphine Treatment for OUD
Opioid addiction can affect anyone, irrespective of age, gender, or background. But thankfully, opioid use disorder (OUD) is treatable. In fact, the use of Buprenorphine is considered to be one of the best ways of OUD treatment.
Buprenorphine is a synthetic opioid used to treat opioid addiction, acute pain as well as chronic pain. It acts as an alternative to opioids, stimulates the opioids receptors, and prevents actual abuse. The combination of Buprenorphine and naloxone is used to treat opioid use disorder, which considerably reduces dependence on opioids, preventing the euphoric feelings associated with opioid abuse.
Buprenorphine is a part of Recovery Connection's medication-assisted treatment process and falls under the opioid substitution treatment methodology.
What can I expect from Buprenorphine treatment?
Buprenorphine can be prescribed in multiple ways, including injections, skin patches, or implants. A more common way of using Buprenorphine is placing it under the tongue or in the cheek and keeping it there until it dissolves. However, Buprenorphine requires controlled prescription under certified experts to prevent the possibility of side effects. Improper dosage of the medication may cause sedation, dizziness, headache, low blood pressure, slow breathing, constricted pupils, nausea, vertigo, sweating, and vomiting.
