Sublocade Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder

Opioid addiction affects nearly five million people in the United States and leads to 17,000 deaths annually. In fact, it has emerged as a very common problem in our society. However, the treatment of individuals suffering from opioid addiction is possible through advanced medication-assisted treatment methodologies. One such effective medication-based treatment for opioid use disorder or OUD is Sublocade.

Considered as one of the most treatment procedures for mild to severe OUD, Sublocade is a prescription-based, extended-release Buprenorphine injection shot for adults. It prevents opioid cravings and fights withdrawal symptoms that may appear on abruptly stopping your intake of opioids.

Sublocade is a schedule III controlled substance and poses the danger of misuse or overuse; thus, there are rules for prescribing as well as dispensing it. Hence the medication is usually prescribed by special Sublocade doctors who are trained and certified to do so. Moreover, Sublocade shots are provided to OUD patients at approved Sublocade centers only.

What can you expect from Sublocade treatment?

Sublocade injections are given once a month by a certified Sublocade doctor. Before the Sublocade shot, you need to take a form of buprenorphine and keep it under your tongue or on the inside of your cheek until it dissolves. The medication is generally repeated for a minimum of seven days before allowing you to switch to Sublocade for OUD treatment.

This buprenorphine prescription controls your withdrawals and prepares you for the Sublocade treatment. However, the medication is stopped if you are proved allergic to buprenorphine.

Receiving Sublocade treatment can initially affect you a little bit. It may make you feel a bit drowsy, tired, or may also result in slow reactions at times. On the other hand, if you are allergic to Sublocade, it can cause hives, itching, dizziness, wheezing, swelling of the face, lips, tongue, and throat.

If you are suffering from mild to severe Opioid Use Disorder, then Sublocade is the most effective treatment recommendation for you. Research shows Sublocade to be a proven treatment procedure as a maintenance medication for opioid dependence. The medication is highly effective in keeping cravings and withdrawal symptoms in check for a longer period of time and significantly reduces the overall use of opioids by at least 80%.
