The purpose of this study is to examine the interactions between buprenorphine and naltrexone, and to assess how they may directly impact the clinical issues involving: transferring patients from buprenorphine to naltrexone, developing a non-abusable form of buprenorphine, and enhancing patient acceptability of naltrexone.

Buprenorphine is a medication used to treat opioid addiction, but individuals who use this drug are at risk of abusing it. A buprenorphine and naloxone combination may reduce the likelihoo...
The purpose of this study is to assess the abuse liability and examine the reinforcing effects of intravenous buprenorphine and buprenorphine/naloxone combinations in buprenorphine-naloxon...
The purpose of this study is to compare two 3-month treatments for adolescents/young adults who are addicted to heroin: buprenorphine/naloxone combined with psychosocial therapy and treatm...
Administration of naloxone is a common treatment for opioid-dependent patients who present with respiratory depression. Although safe in opioid-naive patients, naloxone may cause severe and even life-...
Buprenorphine-naloxone treatment for opioid use disorder has rapidly expanded, yet little is known about treatment outcomes among patients in the general population.
To assess the safety of rapidly dissolving buprenorphine/naloxone sublingual tablets (BNX-RDT) in opioid-dependent patients.
We report a case series of buprenorphine-related respiratory and neurological depression in opioid-naïve elderly hospitalised patients who received buprenorphine for acute pain management at our inst...
Access to opioid agonist treatment can be associated with extensive waiting periods with significant health and financial burdens. This study aimed to determine whether patients with heroin dependence...
A pharmaceutical preparation that combines buprenorphine, an OPIOID ANALGESIC with naloxone, a NARCOTIC ANTAGONIST to reduce the potential for NARCOTIC DEPENDENCE in the treatment of pain. It may also be used for OPIATE SUBSTITUTION THERAPY.
A derivative of the opioid alkaloid THEBAINE that is a more potent and longer lasting analgesic than MORPHINE. It appears to act as a partial agonist at mu and kappa opioid receptors and as an antagonist at delta receptors. The lack of delta-agonist activity has been suggested to account for the observation that buprenorphine tolerance may not develop with chronic use.
Disorders related or resulting from abuse or mis-use of opioids.
An opioid antagonist with properties similar to those of NALOXONE; in addition it also possesses some agonist properties. It should be used cautiously; levallorphan reverses severe opioid-induced respiratory depression but may exacerbate respiratory depression such as that induced by alcohol or other non-opioid central depressants. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p683)
Medical treatment for opioid dependence using a substitute opiate such as METHADONE or BUPRENORPHINE.
Pharmacy is the science and technique of preparing as well as dispensing drugs and medicines. It is a health profession that links health sciences with chemical sciences and aims to ensure the safe and effective use of pharmaceutical drugs. The scope of...
