I am in a unique position to write about my experiences with pregnancy and medication-assisted treatment, like methadone and buprenorphine, for opioid addiction because I have used both of the mainstream MAT options during two separate pregnancies.
Subutex, Suboxone, and buprenorphine, oh my! We recently answered some questions about Suboxone. But we left one off the list. What is Subutex? How is it different that Suboxone? And why aren’t we hearing about it anymore?
There's actually quite a lot of confusion surrounding the role of naloxone in buprenorphine among opioid addicted populations. Today, I'm here to clear up some of the confusion around the role of naloxone in buprenorphine treatment.
