Buprenorphine Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder (OUD)
Opioid addiction has emerged as somewhat of a global epidemic, claiming individuals regardless of their age, gender, or background. However, thanks to modern medicine, even opioid addiction or Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) is treatable.
One such effective way to treat OUD is with the help of Buprenorphine. It is a synthetic opioid administered to patients under strict guidelines to treat mild to severe cases of OUD. Buprenorphine basically acts as an alternative to opioid that prevents the actual opioid dependence by stimulating the opioid receptors in addicts.
At Recovery Connection, we provide Buprenorphine as a part of our advanced medication-assisted treatment programs and is related to the opioid substitution treatment methodology.
How Buprenorphine treatment works?
Buprenorphine needs to be ingested in patients under strict guidelines & prescriptions. However, it is usually prescribed either as injections, skin patches, or as implants. Another common way of Buprenorphine ingestion is placing it under the tongue, or in the cheek, and keeping it there until it dissolves. Only certified Buprenorphine experts are allowed to control the prescription of the drug to ensure zero possibilities 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.
