Buprenex

Drug Info for buprenex

Buprenorphine extended-release injection is used to treat opioid dependence (addiction to opioid drugs, including heroin and narcotic painkillers) in people who have received buccal or sublingual buprenorphine for at least 7 days. Buprenorphine extended-release injection is in a class of medications called opiate partial agonists. It works to prevent withdrawal symptoms when someone stops taking opioid drugs by producing similar effects to these drugs.

Buprenex comes in the form of an injectable solution and is used to treat moderate to severe pain. It works by binding to receptors in the brain, spinal cord and other areas of the body and reduces the transmission of pain signals to the brain. Buprenex can slow or stop your breathing, and may be habit-forming. Common side effects may include drowsiness, dizziness, nausea and vomiting.
