Buprenorphine (Suboxone, Zubsolv, generics) is a medication that is used to treat opioid dependency. Approved by the FDA in 2002, buprenorphine became the first drug to treat opioid dependence in an office setting and represents the latest advance in medication-assisted treatment.
By taking the place of opioids used by the patient, buprenorphine reduces cravings and reduces the intensity of withdrawal symptoms.
Vivitrol (depo-naltrexone) is a monthly injectable medication that is useful for the treatment of opioid addiction and alcohol addiction. Vivitrol has been clinically proven to reduce the probability of relapse. For those suffering from an opioid addiction, Vivitrol may be initiated only after opioid detoxification. Vivitrol may also be used by patients who have completely tapered off of buprenorphine (Suboxone, Zubsolv, generics) to prevent relapse.
This medication binds to receptors in the brain and prevents patients from feeling any pleasant effects of opioids or alcohol.
Many patients with opioid addiction struggle with returning to the use of opioids and then relapse.
