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.

Rapid detoxification of heroin dependence by buprenorphine. (1/597)

AIM: To evaluate the clinical efficacy of buprenorphine (Bup) in treatment of acute heroin withdrawal. METHODS: Bup was given sublingually daily to 60 cases of heroin addicts in 3 groups: low, medium, and high doses. Withdrawal signs and symptoms of heroin were rated by Clinical Institute Narcotic Assessment. Craving for heroin during detoxification was assessed by Visual Analogue Scale. The side effects of Bup was assessed by Treatment Emergent Symptom Scale. RESULTS: The mean daily consumption of Bup in low, medium, and high group was 2.0, 2.9, and 3.6 mg, respectively. Bup not only suppressed objective signs and withdrawal symptoms for heroin withdrawal, but also reduced the duration for heroin detoxification over 7-8 d. CONCLUSION: Bup is an effective and rapid detoxification agent with fewer side effects for treatment of acute heroin withdrawal.  (+info)

Nonselective coupling of the human mu-opioid receptor to multiple inhibitory G-protein isoforms. (2/597)

The human mu-opioid receptor was expressed in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Binding of [3H]diprenorphine to yeast spheroplasts was specific and saturable (Kd = 1 nm, Bmax = 0.2-1 pmol x mg-1 of membrane proteins). Inhibition of [3H]diprenorphine binding by antagonists and agonists with varying opioid selectivities (mu, delta and kappa) occurred with the same order of potency as in mammalian tissues. Affinities of antagonists were the same with yeast spheroplasts as in reference tissues whereas those of agonists, except etorphine and buprenorphine, were 10-fold to 100-fold lower. Addition of heterotrimeric Gi,o-proteins purified from bovine brain shifted the mu-opioid receptor into a high-affinity state for agonists. Using individually purified Galpha-subunits re-associated with betagamma-dimers, we showed that alphao1, alphao2, alphai1, alphai2 and alphai3 reconstituted high-affinity agonist binding with equal efficiency. This suggests that the structural determinants of the mu-opioid receptor responsible for G-protein coupling are not able to confer a high degree of specificity towards any member of the Gi,o family. The selective effects of opioid observed in specialized tissues upon opioid stimulation may be a result of regulation of G-protein activity by cell-specific factors which should conveniently be analysed using the reconstitution assay described here.  (+info)

Assessment of opioid partial agonist activity with a three-choice hydromorphone dose-discrimination procedure. (3/597)

The discriminative stimulus and subjective effects of opioid mixed agonist-antagonists were assessed in volunteer nondependent heroin users trained in a three-choice drug discrimination procedure to discriminate among the effects of i.m. administration of 2 ml of saline, 1 mg of hydromorphone, and 4 mg of hydromorphone (a morphine-like mu agonist). Other subjective, behavioral, and physiological measures were concurrently collected. The discrimination was readily learned by six of the eight subjects. After training, generalization curves were determined for the following i.m. drug conditions: hydromorphone (0.375-4.0 mg), pentazocine (7.5-60 mg), butorphanol (0.75-6 mg), nalbuphine (3-24 mg), and buprenorphine (0.075-0.6 mg). All five of the test drugs were discriminated significantly or showed trends toward being discriminated as hydromorphone 1 mg-like at one or more dose levels. Hydromorphone showed an inverted U-shaped dose-effect function on the hydromorphone 1 mg-like discrimination. Subjective effect measures produced clearer differentiation among the test drugs than did drug discrimination performance. The present results differ from those of a previous study that observed a close relationship between the results of the discrimination measure and subjective effect measures. The previous study used similar methods and test drugs but different training drugs (e.g., 3 mg of hydromorphone versus 6 mg of butorphanol versus saline). It appears that both the sensitivity of drug discrimination performance to between-drug differences and the relationship between discriminative and subjective effects depends upon the specific discrimination that is trained (e.g., two-choice or three-choice). The present high dose-low dose-saline discrimination procedure appears useful for assessing partial agonist activity. The present data are consistent with partial agonist activity for pentazocine, butorphanol, nalbuphine, and buprenorphine.  (+info)

Agonistic effect of buprenorphine in a nociceptin/OFQ receptor-triggered reporter gene assay. (4/597)

The role of the opioid-like receptor 1 (ORL1) and its endogenous ligand, nociceptin/orphanin FQ (N/OFQ), in nociception, anxiety, and learning remains to be defined. To allow the rapid identification of agonists and antagonists, a reporter gene assay has been established in which the ORL1 receptor is functionally linked to the cyclic AMP-dependent expression of luciferase. N/OFQ and N/OFQ(1-13)NH(2) inhibited the forskolin-induced luciferase gene expression with IC(50) values of 0.81 +/- 0.5 and 0.87 +/- 0.16 nM, respectively. Buprenorphine was identified as a full agonist at the ORL1 receptor with an IC(50) value of 8.4 +/- 2.8 nM. Fentanyl and 7-benzylidenenaltrexone displayed a weak agonistic activity. The ORL1 antagonist [Phe(1)Psi(CH(2)-NH)Gly(2)]N/OFQ((1-13))NH(2) clearly behaved as an agonist in this assay with an IC(50) value of 85 +/- 47 nM. Thus, there is still a need for antagonistic tool compounds that might help to elucidate the neurophysiological role of N/OFQ.  (+info)

Determination of buprenorphine and norbuprenorphine in urine and hair by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. (5/597)

Buprenorphine, which is used in France as a substitution drug for opioid addiction, is widely abused, and several fatal cases have been reported. In order to confirm a recent intoxication or to establish retrospectively chronic abuse, a simple and reliable gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric method was developed and validated for quantitation of buprenorphine and its active metabolite norbuprenorphine in urine and hair. Two milliliters of urine or 50 mg of pulverized hair was submitted to a pretreatment (enzymatic hydrolysis for urine and decontamination with dichloromethane followed by incubation in 0.1 M HCI for hair). Buprenorphine-d4 was chosen as the internal standard. Selective solid-phase extraction with Bond Elut Certify columns provided recoveries higher than 85% for urine and 43% for hair. By using a mixture of MSTFA/TMSIM/TMCS (100:2:5), buprenorphine and norbuprenorphine produced stable silylated derivatives. The detection was carried out with a quadrupole mass detector working in El selected ion monitoring mode. Ions at m/z 450 and 468 were chosen for the quantitation of buprenorphine and norbuprenorphine, respectively (m/z 454 was used for the internal standard). Limits of quantitation were 0.25 and 0.20 ng/mL, respectively, for buprenorphine and norbuprenorphine in urine and 0.005 ng/mg for the two compounds in hair. Calibration curves were linear from 0 to 50 ng/mL in urine and from 0 to 0.4 ng/mg in hair. Between-day and within-day precisions were less than 8.4% in hair and 6.1% in urine for both molecules in all cases. This method was applied to urine and hair samples collected from patients in a withdrawal treatment program and demonstrated its good applicability in routine analysis and its benefit for clinicians. This technique, which requires instruments already available to many toxicology laboratories, offers an attractive alternative to more sophisticated techniques.  (+info)

A retrospective study of buprenorphine and norbuprenorphine in human hair after multiple doses. (6/597)

The analysis of hair has been proposed as a tool for monitoring drug-treatment compliance. This study was performed to determine if buprenorphine (BPR) and norbuprenorphine (NBPR) could be detected in human hair after controlled administration of drug and to determine if segmental analysis of hair was an accurate record of the dosing history. Subjects with dark hair (six males, six females) received 8 mg sublingual BPR for a maximum of 180 days. Single hair collections were made once after BPR treatment and stored at -20 degrees C until analysis. Hair was aligned scalp-end to tip and then segmented in 3-cm sections. For this study, it was assumed that the mean hair growth rate was 1.0 cm/month. Deuterated internal standard was added to hair segments (2-20 mg of hair) and digested overnight at room temperature with 1 N NaOH. Specimens were extracted with a liquid-liquid procedure and analyzed by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. The limits of quantitation for BPR and NBPR were 3 pg/mg and 5 pg/mg, respectively, for 20 mg of hair. BPR and NBPR concentrations were highest for all subjects in hair segments estimated to correspond to the subject's period of drug treatment. With one exception, NBPR was present in higher concentrations in hair than was the parent compound. BPR concentrations in hair segments ranged from 3.1 pg/mg to 123.8 pg/mg. NBPR concentrations ranged from 4.8 pg/mg to 1517.8 pg/mg. In one subject, BPR and NBPR were not detected in any hair segment. In some subjects, BPR and NBPR were detected in hair segments that did not correspond to the period of drug treatment, suggesting that drug movement may have occurred by diffusion in sweat and other mechanisms. The data from this study also indicate that there is a high degree of intersubject variability in measured concentration of BPR and NBPR in hair segments, even when subjects receive the same dose for an equivalent number of treatment days. Future prospective studies involving controlled drug administration will be necessary to evaluate whether hair can serve as an accurate historical record of variations in the pattern of drug use.  (+info)

Ring-constrained orvinols as analogs of buprenorphine: differences in opioid activity related to configuration of C(20) hydroxyl group. (7/597)

The relative positions of the C(20) substituents in buprenorphine, particularly the hydroxyl group, have been implicated in its actions as a partial mu-agonist and a kappa-antagonist. This hypothesis has been examined by the synthesis and pharmacological characterization of five orvinols in which the C(20) carbon atom of buprenorphine is constrained in a five-membered ring, fixing the hydroxyl group above (beta) or below (alpha) the plane of the ring. All five compounds were nonselective in binding assays with similar, low nanomolar affinities. The compounds acted as delta-agonists in the mouse vas deferens and kappa-agonists in the myenteric plexus-longitudinal muscle of the guinea pig ileum and in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells expressing the human kappa-opioid receptor (CHO-hkor). All were lower efficacy mu-agonists than buprenorphine as measured by the [(35)S]guanosine-5'-O-(3-thio)triphosphate assay in SH-SY5Y cells. The major difference between the isomers was an 11- to 12-fold higher potency of the beta-OH isomer (BU46) compared with the alpha-OH isomer (BU47) at the kappa-receptor in the guinea pig ileum and CHO-hkor cells and a somewhat higher efficacy of BU46 in CHO-hkor cells. BU46 and BU47 were evaluated in vivo. BU46 was a full agonist in the mouse writhing assay and antinociception was prevented by norbinaltorphimine, showing a kappa-mechanism of action. In contrast, BU47 acted as an antagonist of mu-, delta-, and kappa-mediated antinociception in the writhing assay. The results show that the configuration of the hydroxyl group is not important in binding affinity at mu-, delta-, or kappa-receptors but does influence kappa-potency and kappa-efficacy, particularly in vivo.  (+info)

Opiate drugs and delta-receptor-mediated myocardial protection. (8/597)

BACKGROUND: Hypothermic myocardial arrest is necessary to complete most cardiac surgery, which limits the success of such operations. Similarly, cold, inhospitable environments limit the survival of warm-blooded animals. Animals have successfully adapted to this challenge through hibernation. Hibernation is an energy-conserving state, now known to be governed by cyclical variation in endogenous opiate compounds. It may also be induced in nonhibernators via hibernating animal serum factors or delta-opiate peptides. Furthermore, hibernation-induction triggers extend organ preservation in many models. This study examined whether opiate drugs with an affinity for the delta-opiate receptor confer similar protection. METHODS AND RESULTS: Isolated hearts harvested from New Zealand White rabbits were treated with either cardioplegia alone or delta-opiate drugs (fentanyl, morphine, buprenorphine, pentazocine) followed by 2 hours of 34 degrees C ischemia. Hearts were then reperfused, and functional and metabolic indices of treated groups were compared with untreated controls. Isovolumic developed pressure, coronary flow, and oxygen consumption were compared as a percent of preischemia versus 45 minutes after reflow. Developed pressure and oxygen consumption were better preserved in the morphine, buprenorphine, and pentazocine groups when compared with cardioplegia alone. CONCLUSIONS: Drugs with delta-opiate activity confer myocardial protection, which is additive to cardioplegia. Use of delta-opiate drugs in this context may have important clinical implications.  (+info)

Similar to findings from our previous study (Comer et al., 2002), the present results demonstrate that intravenously administered buprenorphine served as a reinforcer in nondependent, nontreatment-seeking heroin abusers. However, the break point values for 2 and 8 mg of buprenorphine (1200 ± 156 and 1233 ± 125, respectively) in the present study were lower than in our previous study (2267 ± 246 and 2067 ± 217, respectively). This discrepancy may be due to potential long-lasting antagonist effects of buprenorphine (Walker et al., 1995; Schuh et al., 1999; Kishioka et al., 2000). Although our previous study showed that 2 and 8 mg of i.v. buprenorphine did not seem to antagonize heroins subjective and physiological effects when heroin was administered 3 and 5 days after buprenorphine (Comer et al., 2002), the ability of buprenorphine to antagonize heroins reinforcing effects was not examined. Therefore, it is possible that buprenorphines antagonist effects may have contributed to the lower ...
Buprenorphine maintenance is an effective treatment for opioid dependence, yet diffusion has been limited. Physician concern about induction is a reported barrier, primarily as buprenorphine may precipitate withdrawal due to its partial opioid agonist activity and high receptor binding affinity. To minimize risk, guidelines recommend in-office assessment and monitoring during induction. As this may not be feasible (e.g., time limitations), many patients are instructed to self-induct at home. While this may facilitate treatment entry, data on at-home induction are limited. The study will assess the effectiveness of at-home vs. in-office induction for patients entering buprenorphine maintenance at Associates in Internal Medicine (AIM) primary care clinic. Currently, patients receive buprenorphine maintenance at AIM as part of standard clinical practice and through an observational study (IRB 5258). Most patients are insured through Medicaid, which covers visit, medication (obtained through ...
INTRODUCTION Opioid dependence is a chronic relapsing disorder that shows excess mortality and comorbidity with somatic and psychiatric disorders. Methadone and buprenorphine/naloxone are widely accepted and are used as first-line maintenance treatments for opioid dependence. Fatal intoxications with these agents, risk of diversion, and accidental intoxications, especially in children, are apparent risks and are of increasing public concern. Buprenorphine/naloxone sublingual tablet is an established treatment for opioid dependence. A novel buprenorphine/naloxone film has been developed with improved pharmacokinetics and a hopefully lower risk of diversion and accidental intoxications. AREAS COVERED This review evaluates the available preclinical and clinical data on the novel buprenorphine/naloxone film for the treatment of opioid dependence. Literature was identified though a comprehensive PubMed search and data sources included official FDA information. EXPERT OPINION This is an interesting new
Buprenorphine is principally metabolized from the cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 enzyme. 16% (468.3 to 55.1 for buprenorphine, 414.3 to 340.2 for norbuprenorphine, and 472.3 to 59.2 and 417.3 to 83.2 for the inner standards, respectively. The reduced limit of quantification (LLQ) for plasma buprenorphine was 0.02?ng/mL, as well as for VPREB1 norbuprenorphine 0.10?ng/mL. For urine buprenorphine and norbuprenorphine, the LLQ was 0.5?ng/mL. The interday coefficients of variant (CV%) had been for plasma buprenorphine 8.0% at 5.3?ng/mL, 8.7% at 0.5?ng/mL, and 6.1% at 0.05?ng/mL, as well as for norbuprenorphine 3.7% at 4.8?ng/mL and 8.7% at 0.48?ng/mL.

Drug and Alcohol Findings Effectiveness Bank analysis titled: Home- versus office-based buprenorphine inductions for opioid-dependent patients
Buprenorphine is an important alternative to methadone in the maintenance treatment of heroin addiction. Transfer from methadone to buprenorphine requires a reduction of daily methadone dosage below 30 mg to avoid withdrawal after the first buprenorphine intake. The study hypothesis states that the transfer from a daily methadone dosage between 60 mg and 100 mg to buprenorphine can be carried out without withdrawal using buprenorphine patches (35 micro grams per hour) within 12 to 48 hours after last methadone intake ...
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Group medical visits to intensify buprenorphine treatment in primary care Opioid addiction and opioid overdose deaths have increased rapidly in the United States. Access to opioid addiction treatment has improved through successful implementation of buprenorphine maintenance treatment (BMT) in primary care; however, treatment outcomes, including abstinence from opioids, have yet to be optimized. Our overarching goal is to reduce the consequences of opioid addiction, including HIV transmission, by improving BMT outcomes in primary care. The objective of this study is to develop a manualized theory-guided behavioral intervention based on the model of group medical visits, which will be used in primary care to intensify BMT for patients with ongoing opioid abuse. This proposal aims to: 1.) determine key components of a group-based BMT intervention (G-BMT) that will enhance buprenorphine treatment outcomes within primary care; 2.) develop the G-BMT intervention; ...
Risk Summary There are no adequate and well-controlled studies of buprenorphine sublingual tablets or buprenorphine in pregnant women. Limited published data on use of buprenorphine, the active ingredient in buprenorphine sublingual tablets, in pregnancy, have not shown an increased risk of major malformations. Reproductive and developmental studies in rats and rabbits identified adverse events at clinically relevant and higher doses. Embryofetal death was observed in both rats and rabbits administered buprenorphine during the period of organogenesis at doses approximately 6 and 0.3 times, respectively, the human sublingual dose of 16 mg/day of buprenorphine. Pre-and postnatal development studies in rats demonstrated increased neonatal deaths at 0.3 times and above and dystocia at approximately 3 times the human sublingual dose of 16 mg/day of buprenorphine. No clear teratogenic effects were seen when buprenorphine was administered during organogenesis with a range of doses equivalent to or ...
Risk Summary The data on use of buprenorphine, the active ingredient in Buprenorphine Sublingual Tablets, in pregnancy, are limited; however, these data do not indicate an increased risk of major malformations specifically due to buprenorphine exposure. There are limited data from randomized clinical trials in women maintained on buprenorphine that were not designed appropriately to assess the risk of major malformations [see Data]. Observational studies have reported on congenital malformations among buprenorphine-exposed pregnancies, but were also not designed appropriately to assess the risk of congenital malformations specifically due to buprenorphine exposure [see Data]. Reproductive and developmental studies in rats and rabbits identified adverse events at clinically relevant and higher doses. Embryofetal death was observed in both rats and rabbits administered buprenorphine during the period of organogenesis at doses approximately 6 and 0.3 times, respectively, the human sublingual dose ...

Buprenorphine/naltrexone is an experimental combination drug formulation of buprenorphine, a μ-opioid receptor (MOR) weak partial agonist and κ-opioid receptor (KOR) antagonist, and naltrexone, a MOR and KOR silent antagonist, which is under investigation for the potential treatment of psychiatric disorders. The combination of the two drugs is thought to result in a selective blockade of the KOR and hence fewer MOR activation-related concerns such as euphoria and opioid dependence. It has been found to produce antidepressant-like effects in mice (similarly to the case of buprenorphine alone or in combination with samidorphan) and (at a buprenorphine dosage of 16 mg/day but not 4 mg/day) has recently been found to be effective in the treatment of cocaine dependence in a large (n = 302) human clinical trial.

In October 2002, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved buprenorphine monotherapy product, Subutex®, and a buprenorphine/naloxone combination product, Suboxone®, for use in opioid addiction treatment. The combination product is designed to decrease the potential for abuse by injection. Subutex® and Suboxone® are currently the only Schedule III, IV, or V medications to have received FDA approval for this indication. Note that aside from Subutex® and Suboxone®, other forms of buprenorphine (e.g., Buprenex®) are not approved for treatment of opioid addiction.. *The FDA approval of these buprenorphine formulations does not affect the status of other medication-assisted opioid addiction treatments, such as methadone and LAAM (levo-alpha-acetyl-methadol). As indicated in Title 42 Code of Federal Regulations Part 8 (42 CFR Part 8), these treatments can only be dispensed, and only in the context of an Opioid Treatment Program.. In the late 90s we began seeing the use of Suboxone ...
Buprenorphine is a unique pharmaceutical in the management of chronic pain and opioid use disorder (OUD). Buprenorphine is a semisynthetic partial opioid agonist at the mu opioid receptor and an antagonist of the kappa opioid. Buprenorphine Maintenance Therapy (BMT) is utilized for the long-term treatment of patients with OUD. The attraction to this methadone alternative is increased safety profile, more convenient patient access to the drug, as well as increase of ease for the provider. The particular formula used in the US, Suboxone, has properties to discourage intravenous injection to prevent abuse and prevent negative secondary effects of intravascular injections in general. Buprenorphine, a partial agonist, has an affinity higher than that of a full agonist at the mu receptor. It has lower efficacy, slow offset, as well as a ceiling effect, making surgical analgesia difficult to control for those on a maintenance therapy. In the clinical setting, many opinions and theories have been discussed in
To understand trends in buprenorphine use, King and her co-authors used IQVIA Real World Longitudinal Prescription Data, a database that records prescription information for people across the United States. This tool allowed the researchers to see which patients were getting buprenorphine, how long they stayed on the medication, and who prescribed it for them-a primary care physician, a psychiatrist or addiction specialist, or (more rarely) another type of provider, such as a medical specialist, dentist, or pharmacist.. Understanding the source of buprenorphine prescriptions is a good indicator of access, King explains. Addiction specialists and psychiatrists were once the gatekeepers of medication-assisted treatment but can no longer keep up with demand, so theres been a movement to allow primary care providers to prescribe therapies such as buprenorphine. Being able to understand whether primary care doctors are prescribing buprenorphine and whether thats a viable path towards expanded ...
Effects of Buprenorphine and Hepatitis C on Liver Enzymes in Adolescents and Young Adults.. Poster presented at the College on Problems of Drug Dependence (CPDD) annual meeting, San Juan, Puerto Rico, June 14-19, 2008.. Michael P. Bogenschutz, MD, Robert Kushner, J. Scott Tonigan (all from Center on Alcoholism, Substance Abuse, and Addictions (CASAA), University of New Mexico, SW Node), George E. Woody, MD (University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, DV Node). This study aimed to determine whether buprenorphine treatment was associated with changes in liver function among opioid dependent subjects aged 15-21. Baseline data was available for 152 subjects who participated in protocol CTN-0010 (Buprenorphine/Naloxone-Facilitated Rehabilitation for Opioid Dependent Adolescents/Young Adults), seeking treatment for opioid dependence. The subjects were then randomized to 2 weeks of detoxification with buprenorphine/naloxone (DETOX) or 12 weeks of buprenorphine/naloxone (BUP), each with weekly ...

About Suboxone®. The FDA approved Suboxone® in October of 2002 for use in the treatment of opioid addiction. Suboxone® is a registered trademark of and manufactured by Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals. Suboxone® is composed of the two active ingredients: buprenorphine and naloxone.. Naloxone is used to block the effect of opioids. Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist that stimulates opioid receptors but does not produce the same effects as an opioid. In other words it does not produce a euphoric high effect. The combination of these two actives has been shown to be efficacious in managing the treatment of opioid addiction. Suboxone® is most often taken sublingually (dissolved under the tongue). Taken properly it can reduce opioid use, help patients to be successfully managed in an addiction rehabilitation program, and depress the symptoms of opioid withdrawal. Suboxone® is the most commonly prescribed medication that is administered to patients during the maintenance phase of ...
Conclusions These results suggest that buprenorphine and buprenorphine/naloxone have similar abuse potential in non-dependent opioid abusers, and that the addition of naloxone at these doses and in this dose ratio confers no evident advantage for decreasing the abuse potential of intramuscular […]
This two-group randomized clinical trial will test the effectiveness of intensive outpatient (IOP) v. standard outpatient (OP) treatment in 272 heroin-dependent African American adults receiving buprenorphine in 3 formerly drug-free programs. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of the two treatment intensity conditions at intake and assessed at baseline, 3-months, and 6-months post-baseline to determine treatment retention, frequency and severity of heroin and cocaine use, self-reported HIV-risk, quality of life, and to determine DSM-IV criteria for Full or Partial Remission of Opioid Dependence. Furthermore, patient factors potentially critical for treatment success (e.g., attitudes towards buprenorphine and average buprenorphine dose while in treatment) will be examined to determine their importance in influencing treatment outcomes. Moreover, both patient and staff attitudes and average buprenorphine dose will be evaluated to determine their respective relationships to treatment ...
Sublingual buprenorphine may not be safe for people with certain lung diseases or a seizure disorder. This eMedTV Web page describes other important warnings and precautions with sublingual buprenorphine, including details on who should not use this drug.
Buprenorphine is a partial agonist medication that is used in the treatment of opioid withdrawal. It is also the preferred drug for medication management treatment especially when it is combined with naloxone to form Suboxone. If you take this drug, it can also keep you from abusing opioid substances like oxycodone, hydrocodone, morphine, and heroin - among many others. However, it is still important to keep in mind that it can also lead to the development of a substance use disorder or an addiction. This medication, however, has many advantages apart from its ability to manage opioid addiction and withdrawal symptoms. For instance, it is highly unlikely that you will suffer a drug overdose if you take buprenorphine properly. In the same way, it is a long acting drug. As a result, you might not have to use this medication on a daily basis for it to be effective at treating the condition that you are trying to manage. Additionally, if you have a prescription for buprenorphine, you might be able ...
Sublingual buprenorphine is approved to treat opioid dependence in adults. This eMedTV page explains how this drug works to wean someone off opioid narcotic drugs and discusses some possible off-label, or unapproved, uses for sublingual buprenorphine.
Cost barriers to more widespread use of buprenorphine in the treatment of opioid addiction have begun to ease. Other obstacles, including the longstanding limit on how many patients a prescribing physician may treat at any one time, could take substantially longer to remove, and California addiction medicine specialist Matthew A. Torrington, MD, says he is learning to be patient.. These things take a lot longer than anybody hoped they would, says Torrington, who will deliver a keynote presentation on the past, present and future of buprenorphine at next months Addiction Professional Academy on opioid addiction and pain management in Orange County, Calif. Only the old and the wise realize how long it takes. The young and inexperienced, like myself, think everything is going to happen overnight.. Maintaining the view that the glass is half full, Torrington points out that many more patients have access to medication-assisted treatment now that methadone is no longer the sole medication ...

An LC-MS method has been developed for simultaneous quantification of buprenorphine and its three metabolites, namely norbuprenorphine, buprenorphine glucuronide, and norbuprenorphine glucuronide Chromatographic separation was achieved on a C18 column with a gradient of acetonitrile and ammonium acetate buffer (25 mM, pH 6.6). The method run time was 7.5 min. Quantification was performed by selected ion monitoring of [M+H]+ ions of norbuprenorphine glucuronide (590), norbuprenorphine (414), buprenorphine glucuronide (644) and buprenorphine (468). Naloxone (328) (328ng/mL) was used as an internal standard. The samples were processed by protein precipitation and extraction recovery was ≥95% with minimal observed matrix effects (

Background: Methadone abuse is a puzzle. Objective: To uncover the achievement of a single high dose of 64 mg of buprenorphine for the remedy of methadone dependency. Results: 64 mg of buprenorphine as a single administration can be sufficient for the treatment of methadone dependent patient. Discussion: Our study indicates that buprenorphine 64 mg as a single dose only, can be sufficient for the treatment of methadone withdrawal symptoms. So, this work may be a substantial addition to the literature. Conclusions: We can conclude that a single high dose of buprenorphine may be enough for the treatment of methadone withdrawal symptoms.

Since buprenorphine is an opioid substance derived from mind-altering chemicals contained in the opium poppy, it produces the same basic effects inside the brain as commonly abused opioid drugs and medications such as heroin, oxycodone (OxyContin), hydrocodone (Vicodin) and fentanyl (Duragesic). However, while the intensity of the effects produced by these abused substances is quite extreme, buprenorphine produces effects with a significantly lower level of intensity. If a person addicted to powerful opioids switches to buprenorphine, he or she will not experience the high normally associated with opioid use. Instead, he or she will experience a weakening of the opioid-fueled brain changes that support the continuation of addiction. In drug treatment programs, doctors use buprenorphines relatively modest opioid impact to wean addicts off stronger opioid substances while still providing enough of an opioid effect to prevent or sharply diminish the presence of opioid withdrawal. This is ...

Opioid treatment programs (OTPs) must submit a plethora of information on their services to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Office-based outpatient treatment (OBOT) providers who prescribe buprenorphine must submit exactly nothing, it appears.. On May 20, we asked SAMHSA, How is office-based treatment with buprenorphine working, since the patient cap was increased from 100 to 275 in July of 2016? How many patients are getting treatment? What kind of treatment are they getting? Are doctors reporting anything?. On May 23, SAMHSA responded: The only MAT data we have would be from N-SSATS, and that doesnt include private practitioners. (N-SSATS is the National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services.). SAMHSA then provided this statement: SAMHSA promotes access to medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder through training of providers (e.g., physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants). For example, the 4,151 buprenorphine ...
Infants exposed in utero to opioids will demonstrate a withdrawal syndrome known as neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). Buprenorphine is a long-acting opioid with therapeutic use in medication-assisted treatment of opioid dependency in adults and adolescents. Emerging data from clinical trials and treatment cohorts demonstrate the efficacy and safety of sublingual buprenorphine for those infants with NAS who require pharmacologic treatment. Pharmacometric modeling will assist in defining the exposure-response relationships and facilitate dose optimization.
Buprenorphine is an important analgesic due to its possibility of being administered orally and its reduced side effects when compared to other opioids. Gingivostomatitis in cats is a frequent multifactorial condition that causes severe pain and discomfort so it requires sturdy symptomatic treatments. Because it can be absorbed orally, and because it has fewer side-effects than other opiods, buprenorphine is an important analgesic. Gingivostomatitis in cats is a painful, multifactorial condition that requires aggressive symptomatic treatment.. The authors wanted to determine if severe oral inflammation influences the effects of orally administered buprenorphine. Six cats with varying degrees of gingivostomatitis were incorporated into this prospective study.. The patients were divided into two groups, A and B. On day one, group A received oral buprenorphine while group B received a saline solution. On day two, group A was given the same saline solution and group B received buprenorphine. Cats ...
In two pilot clinical trials, buprenorphine helped participants reduce their illicit opioid use and injection drug use while awaiting admission to a methadone or buprenorphine treatment program. Researchers minimized the risks for improper use or diversion of the study medication by giving it to trial participants in a computerized, tamper-proof device that dispenses one dose each day. ...
New research may change the prevailing approach to treating neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), according to the authors of a New England Journal of Medicine article published last week. Currently, babies born to mothers who have used opioids, and who then suffer symptoms of withdrawal, are administered opioids and then tapered off over a 1-month period. The process requires a prolonged hospital stay. But the research team, at the Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University found that treatment with buprenorphine instead of morphine could reduce the therapy duration by one-half. Lead author Walter Kraft, MD, commented, We predict that buprenorphine will become the new standard of care for NAS.. The clinical trial enrolled 63 infants with symptoms of NAS, randomly divided into treatment with either morphine or buprenorphine. Group assignment was blinded to both families and clinicians. The 30 infants treated with morphine needed an average of 28 days of therapy to fully control ...
These results are consistent with the use of buprenorphine as an acceptable treatment for opioid dependence in pregnant women. (Funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse; ClinicalTrials.gov number, NCT00271219.).
Does kratom block heroin? note: suboxone does not block opiates. increased doses of buprenorphine do not increase the effects past a certain point, which limits the chances of misuse or dependency. according to the national alliance of advocates for buprenorphine treatment ( naabt), buprenorphine can stay in the system and continue does to work for up to three days. naloxone is not orally work active. it is added to suboxone to prevent opiate addicts from attempting to crush the pills and use them in a different manner than intended. if kratom works while on buprenorphine, there is no reason to believe kratom would not work on suboxone. there are many deceases that can be easily recover by using kratom. i have to share my experience with kratom. before two months ago i am suffer from back pain then i am used kratom as a medicine in the form of kratom extract. in few minutes, i feel much better. you can use kratom as in powder, capsule and extract form.. kratom dosages for opiate withdrawal. ...

We evaluated the commonly prescribed analgesic buprenorphine in a postoperative pain model in rats, assessing acute postoperative pain relief, rebound hyperalgesia, and the long-term effects of postoperative opioid treatment on subsequent opioid exposure. Rats received surgery (paw incision under isoflurane anesthesia), sham surgery (anesthesia only), or neither and were treated postoperatively with 1 of several doses of subcutaneous buprenorphine. Pain sensitivity to noxious and nonnoxious mechanical stimuli at the site of injury (primary pain) was assessed at 1, 4, 24, and 72 h after surgery. Pain sensitivity at a site distal to the injury (secondary pain) was assessed at 24 and 72 h after surgery. Rats were tested for their sensitivity to the analgesic and locomotor effects of morphine 9 to 10 d after surgery. Buprenorphine at 0.05 mg/kg SC was determined to be the most effective; this dose induced isoalgesia during the acute postoperative period and the longest period of pain relief, and it ...

The clinical efficacy of promising cocaine anti-craving medications was examined in combination with buprenorphine. Twenty-one opioid-dependent cocaine abusers were enrolled in a double-blind, 12-week trial in which they received on a daily basis buprenorphine (8 mg, s.l.) plus either desipramine (150 mg, p.o.), amantadine (300 mg, p.o.), or fluoxetine (60 mg, p.o.). Urine samples and self-reported drug use were obtained 1-3 times/week. The order of greatest patient retention across the 12 weeks was desipramine (83.3%) > amantadine (66.7%) > fluoxetine (20.0%). The desipramine and amantadine groups appeared to have greater increases in opioid- and cocaine-free urines than the fluoxetine group. These results suggest that desipramine and amantadine may facilitate greater opioid and cocaine abstinence than fluoxetine. ...
A trial of buprenorphine/naloxone (Bup/Nx) showed no evidence that the medicine was associated with liver damage. The drug gave results similar to those of methadone. The study data indicate that although most patients can be treated safely with either methadone or Bup/Nx without major concern for liver injury, clinicians are advised to continue to monitor the liver health of their patients who are on methadone or Bup/Nx therapy. ...
Background: Empirical evidence is needed to guide adequate postpartum pain relief of methadone and buprenorphine stabilized patients. Objectives: To first determine the adequacy of pain control using non-opioid and opioid medication in participants stabilized on buprenorphine or methadone before a vaginal delivery. Second, to compare the amount of non-opioid and opioid medication needed for adequate pain control for buprenorphine-and methadone-maintained patients during the immediate postpartum period.
Stakeholders were considered patients, medical providers, clinic staff, clinic administration, and pharmacy (inhouse or within the community). SPNS grantees found it was helpful to inform the community about their work. This allowed grantees to educate the community on buprenorphine and ensure this work was seen as a complement to--rather than a competition with--other available treatment alternatives, such as public and private methadone clinics, and residential detoxification and rehabilitation facilities, as well as substance-use treatment providers. Because of the cross-section of illegal opioid use and the criminal justice system, several SPNS grantees ensured outreach to their local jail services programs.69.

Presently, methadone is the recommended treatment for opioid-dependent pregnant women, but is associated with neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). NAS is characterized by opioid withdrawal symptoms in the newborn, which often requires longer hospitalization and treatment. Buprenorphine, FDA-approved in 2002 for the treatment of opioid dependence in non-pregnant individuals, hasnt been extensively studied during pregnancy. Yet, a new study in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) found that buprenorphine offers an alternative to methadone in the treatment of opioid-dependent pregnant women. The study compared buprenorphine to methadone in 131 mothers and their newborns at eight international sites ...
As proof of principle, two applications were tested: 1) The behavioural response after a single stimulus and the effect of buprenorphine on this response. 2) Habituation of locomotor activity to multiple stimuli and the involvement of the NMDA receptor. Reduced locomotor activity was observed after a single 5 V stimulus, however not with lower intensity stimuli. Pre-treatment with the analgesic buprenorphine prevented this response. Specificity of buprenorphine was confirmed using the antagonist naloxone. Habituation of locomotor activity was seen in response to multiple stimuli, depending on the inter stimulus interval. Treatment with the NMDA receptor antagonist memantine disrupted behavioural habituation.. ...
Tramadol applied via the drinking water is a commonly used analgesia in the mouse osteotomy model. Another opioid that can be used is buprenorphine. The recommendation for tramadol in the drinking water was increased 40-fold by the GV-SOLAS from 2010 to 2015. A recommendation on buprenorphine is given for injection but not for the application in the drinking water. Nevertheless, some standard operating procedures are found on buprenorphine applied via the drinking water. Model-specific recommendations on pain management in the mouse osteotomy model are not available. In the current study, three pain management protocols, two dosages of tramadol and buprenorphine applied via the drinking water in the mouse osteotomy model were tested. This refinement project was integrated into a basic research study. The aim of this project was to provide researchers with a specific recommendation on pain treatment in bone-linked mouse models. The three pain management protocols (tramadol 0.1 mg/ml, tramadol 1 ...
Description of the drug Buprenorphine Hydrochloride/Naloxone Hydrochloride. - patient information, description, dosage and directions. What is Buprenorphine Hydrochloride/Naloxone Hydrochloride!
The main features of opioid withdrawal are nausea, vomiting, diaphoresis, yawning, fatigue, aches and pain, diarrhea, mydriasis, and piloerection.35 Subjective symptoms are much greater than objective signs.36,37 Cravings begin 4 to 6 hours after the last dose of short-acting opioids, leading to active drug-seeking behaviour. This is followed by anxiety, diaphoresis, and agitation after 8 to 12 hours and the other symptoms after 12 to 24 hours. Peak withdrawal discomfort is usually experienced after 36 to 72 hours and decreases thereafter.35 All these symptoms are delayed with long-acting opioids such as methadone. Consciousness is usually unimpaired, and opioid withdrawal is not life-threatening in itself, even if untreated. In both outpatient and inpatient settings, the therapeutic goal of using a long-acting agent like buprenorphine is to eliminate illicit opioid use, control the rate of taper, reduce withdrawal symptoms, and improve retention in treatment.. The best evidence for the efficacy ...
Prescribing for Opioid Addiction is My Responsibility, a recent post in the American Academy of Family Physicians Leader Voices Blog, sounds a clarion call for more prescribers to start providing buprenorphine to patients who need it.. Opioid use -- both prescription and the illegal variety -- has skyrocketed, but the number of physicians available to help those affected has not. According to HHS, less than half of the 2.2 million Americans who need treatment for opioid addiction are getting it. The Pew Charitable Trusts has noted, for example, that almost 500 patients in Vermont are on waiting lists to receive medication for opioid dependence. For the majority, the wait will last nearly a year. The issue of supply and demand for approved prescribers isnt limited to that state, and the long wait for help proves too long for many.. My patients need help, so it has to be me. I have to take responsibility.. In the past month, three patients came to me wanting more opioid medications or refills ...
In phase 1 of the study, 4 cats received buprenorphine, 0.02 mg/kg intramuscularly (IM) and 6 cats received butorphanol, 0.4 mg/kg IM preoperatively In phase 1, 9 of the 10 subjects required rescue analgesia (methadone and meloxicam), and due to the high requirement for rescue analgesia in this group, phase 1 was discontinued for ethical reasons. In phase 2 of the study, the same experimental design was followed and 29 cats, 14 in the buprenorphine group and 15 in the butorphanol group, received the same doses of their assigned pre-operative opioid as the phase 1 cats, but these patients also received an additional dose of the same opioid at the same dosage as pre-operatively during wound closure.

There are proven treatment options that help fight opioid dependency such as psychotherapy, IOPs, naltrexone, buprenorphine, etc. Naltrexone and buprenorphine act as opioid antagonists which effectively substitutes for a full agonist opioid (such as those listed above) and stabilizes a persons brain chemistry. The antagonist stops the development of further opioid tolerance by blocking the receptors in the brain and prevents the ability to feel high. The antagonists are useful in preventing relapse and help fight opioid dependency altogether. Naltrexone and buprenorphine have other favorable pharmacologic properties and are well-tolerated by most. They are part of a harm reduction strategy and are extremely helpful adjunct to comprehensive treatment of opioid dependency.. You can overcome your opioid dependency by taking the first step and seeking help. Effective treatment options vary from person to person, so start by talking to a psychiatrist or therapist and learn what works best for you. ...

Many state-funded addiction treatment services have undergone gradual cuts during the last 15 years. With the rising opioid addiction crisis in America, better access to opioid treatment is definitely needed.. There are a number of private clinics and outpatient treatment centers opening their doors in most every state. These private clinics are meeting a need for services that are often absent in more remote areas of the country. Some new opioid treatment providers are smaller, independent methadone clinics while others are part of a larger network such as those owned by Acadia Healthcare, Behavioral Health Group (BHG), or Colonial Management Group. They all have one thing in common, and it is that they provide their patients with medication-assisted treatment (MAT). MAT is scientifically proven to be more effective than other forms of abstinence-based treatment. Medication assistance typically utilizes methadone or buprenorphine-based products to alleviate a patients chronic opioid ...

Brain Dopaminergic Signaling in Opioid Use Disorders (OUD). Goal: To assess the influence of dopamine receptor availability on brain reward and self-control networks and behavior.. Summary: This study explores whether the balance in dopamine receptors is disrupted in individuals with OUDs. Comparisons will be made between individuals receiving medication-assisted treatment and those who are not.. Caron is collaborating with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) on this study. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter, or a messenger, produced by the body to carry messages between nerve cells in the brain. In this study, researchers are looking to determine if dopamine signaling is disrupted in people with an OUD and whether decreased dopamine decreases self-control and increases impulsiveness. To do that, researchers are comparing brain scans of opioid users receiving medication-assisted treatment to those who are not ...
The combination of glecaprevir (formerly ABT-493), a nonstructural protein 3/4A (NS3/4A) protease inhibitor, and pibrentasvir (formerly ABT-530), an NS5A protein inhibitor, is being developed as treatment for HCV genotype 1 to 6 infection. The pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, safety, and tolerability of methadone or buprenorphine-naloxone when coadministered with the glecaprevir-pibrentasvir combination in HCV-negative subjects on stable opioid maintenance therapy were investigated in a phase 1, single-center, two-arm, multiple-dose, open-label sequential study. Subjects received methadone (arm 1) or buprenorphine-naloxone (arm 2) once daily (QD) per their existing individual prescriptions alone (days 1 to 9) and then in combination with glecaprevir at 300 mg QD and pibrentasvir at 120 mg QD (days 10 to 16) each morning. Dose-normalized exposures were similar with and without glecaprevir and pibrentasvir for (R)- and (S)-methadone (≤5% difference) and for buprenorphine and naloxone (≤24%
0063]The cold pressor (CP) test was used to assess antinociception of buprenorphine and buprenorphine and naloxone combinations. The compound forms were buprenorphine HCl and naloxone HCl dihydrate. The CP test utilised two plastic cylindrical containers, one of which was filled with warm water and the other with a combination of water and crushed ice to achieve a slushy consistency. The subject immersed the non-dominant forearm and hand into the warm water for exactly 2 minutes. At 1 minute 45 seconds, a blood pressure cuff on the immersed arm was inflated to a pressure 20 mmHg below the diastolic blood pressure. The blood pressure cuff minimised the role of blood flow in determining the reaction to cold. At exactly 2 minutes, the forearm was transferred from the warm water to the cold water bath. The subjects eyes were covered for the entire procedure to minimise distraction and cues for time. Upon immersion of the limb in the cold water bath, subjects were asked to indicate when they first ...

The hormone prolactin stimulates lactation (production of breast milk). Dopamine, released by the hypothalamus stops the release of prolactin from the pituitary gland. Domperidone, by acting as an anti-dopaminergic agent, results in increased prolactin secretion, and thus promotes lactation (that is, it is a galactogogue). In some nations, including Australia, domperidone is used off-label, based on uncertain and anecdotal evidence of its usefulness, as a therapy for mothers who are having difficulty breastfeeding.[24][25] In the United States, domperidone is not approved for this or any other use.[26][27] A study called the EMPOWER trial was designed to assess the effectiveness and safety of domperidone in assisting mothers of preterm babies to supply breast milk for their infants.[28] The study randomized 90 mothers of preterm babies to receive either domperidone 10 mg orally three times daily for 28 days (Group A) or placebo 10 mg orally three times daily for 14 days followed by domperidone ...

Caffeine is a stimulant compound belonging to the xanthine class of chemicals naturally found in coffee, tea, and (to a lesser degree) cocoa or chocolate. It is included in many soft drinks, as well as a larger amount in energy drinks. Caffeine is the world's most widely used psychoactive drug and by far the most common stimulant. In North America, 90% of adults consume caffeine daily.[63] A few jurisdictions restrict its sale and use. Caffeine is also included in some medications, usually for the purpose of enhancing the effect of the primary ingredient, or reducing one of its side-effects (especially drowsiness). Tablets containing standardized doses of caffeine are also widely available. Caffeine's mechanism of action differs from many stimulants, as it produces stimulant effects by inhibiting adenosine receptors.[64] Adenosine receptors are thought to be a large driver of drowsiness and sleep, and their action increases with extended wakefulness.[65] Caffeine has been found to increase ...

Leading proponents of the 1960s psychedelic art movement were San Francisco poster artists such as: Rick Griffin, Victor Moscoso, Bonnie MacLean, Stanley Mouse & Alton Kelley, and Wes Wilson. Their psychedelic rock concert posters were inspired by Art Nouveau, Victoriana, Dada, and Pop Art. The "Fillmore Posters" were among the most notable of the time. Richly saturated colors in glaring contrast, elaborately ornate lettering, strongly symmetrical composition, collage elements, rubber-like distortions, and bizarre iconography are all hallmarks of the San Francisco psychedelic poster art style. The style flourished from about 1966 to 1972. Their work was immediately influential to vinyl record album cover art, and indeed all of the aforementioned artists also created album covers. Although San Francisco remained the hub of psychedelic art into the early 1970s, the style also developed internationally: British artist Bridget Riley became famous for her op-art paintings of psychedelic patterns ...
A channel that is "inwardly-rectifying" is one that passes current (positive charge) more easily in the inward direction (into the cell) than in the outward direction (out of the cell). It is thought that this current may play an important role in regulating neuronal activity, by helping to stabilize the resting membrane potential of the cell. By convention, inward current (positive charge moving into the cell) is displayed in voltage clamp as a downward deflection, while an outward current (positive charge moving out of the cell) is shown as an upward deflection. At membrane potentials negative to potassium's reversal potential, inwardly rectifying K+ channels support the flow of positively charged K+ ions into the cell, pushing the membrane potential back to the resting potential. This can be seen in figure 1: when the membrane potential is clamped negative to the channel's resting potential (e.g. -60 mV), inward current flows (i.e. positive charge flows into the cell). However, when the ...

A common misunderstanding amongst researchers is that most national laws (including the Misuse for Drugs Act) allows the use of small amounts of a controlled substance for non-clinical / non-in vivo research without licences. A typical use case might be having a few milligrams or microlitres of a controlled substance within larger chemical collections (often 10K's of chemicals) for in vitro screening. Researchers often believe that there is some form of "research exemption" for such small amounts. This incorrect view maybe further re-enforced by R&D chemical suppliers often stating and asking scientists to confirm that anything bought is for research use only. A further misconception is that the Misuse of Drugs Act simply lists a few hundred substances (e.g. MDMA, Fentanyl, Amphetamine, etc.) and compliance can be achieved via checking a CAS number, chemical name or similar identifier. However, the reality is that in most cases all ethers, esters, salts and stereo isomers are also controlled and ...

... (marketed as Depamide by Sanofi-Aventis) is a carboxamide derivative of valproic acid used in the treatment of epilepsy and some affective disorders. It is rapidly metabolised (80%) to valproic acid (another anticonvulsant) but has anticonvulsant properties itself. It may produce more stable plasma levels than valproic acid or sodium valproate and may be more effective at preventing febrile seizures. However, it is over one hundred times more potent as an inhibitor of liver microsomal epoxide hydrolase. This makes it incompatible with carbamazepine and can affect the ability of the body to remove other toxins. Valpromide is no safer during pregnancy than valproic acid. Valpromide is formed through the reaction of valproic acid and ammonia via an intermediate acid chloride. In pure form, valpromide is a white crystalline powder and has melting point 125-126 °C. It is practically insoluble in water but soluble in hot water. It is available on the market in some European countries. ...
