  • Your child will be monitored for signs of withdrawal or Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) based on nursing assessment, your history or a positive screen of their urine or stool. (crozerkeystone.org)
  • Additionally, infant neurobehavioral assessments and measurements of infant vagal tone will be collected to see how methadone and buprenorphine differentially affect the neonatal abstinence syndrome, or 'withdrawal' in exposed neonates. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Some research has shown that buprenorphine lessens the neonatal abstinence syndrome when compared to methadone. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The differential effects of methadone and buprenorphine on the neonatal abstinence syndrome will also be explored. (clinicaltrials.gov)
