Buprenex (Buprenorphine) Treatment
What is Buprenex?
The addiction recovery drug, Buprenex is an injectable drug that is given to recovering opiate addicts once a day to ease the withdrawal symptoms of opioids such as oxycodone, Percocet or heroin. Buprenex is also frequently used in veterinary clinics are an injectable painkiller for pets.
How does Buprenex work?
Buprenex works similarly to other opioid-based painkillers or heroin, in that it attaches to the receptors in the central nervous system responsible for distributing the “rush that opiate addicts are accustomed to and regulating the delivery so that addicts do not suffer from withdrawal symptoms, but are able to make it through the day fully functional.
How can Buprenex be abused?
It is fairly difficult for this prescription medication to be abused since it is injected straight into the system and there is no faster method for delivery. This drug is heavily regulated so that no user can receive more than one dose a day and the injection is given at a clinic or doctor’s office and then the needles are then thrown away.
Opiate addicts may abuse Buprenex by using it to curb withdrawal symptoms in between stronger fixes of drugs purchased on the street. In this case, the drug serves its purpose, but it is not completely aiding in drug cessation.
What are the side effects of Buprenex?
Side effects for Buprenex are similar to those experienced by opioid abusers and can include symptoms ranging from moderate to severe. On the mild spectrum, headache, stomach pain and vomiting; on the severe end, slowed breathing, unusual bleeding, itching and skin rash.
What are the withdrawal symptoms of Buprenex?
The point of using Buprenex is so that recovering addicts will not fully have to suffer the withdrawal symptoms of being addicted to an opiate. However, if a user quits using Buprenex, the symptoms are similar to that of opioids and include restlessness, vomiting, diarrhea, leg spasms, irregular heartbeat, cold flashes and muscle and bone pain.
