What is the rationale of bulpurphine in management of opiod dependence? N its combination with naloxone

What is the rationale of bulpurphine in management of opiod dependence? N its combination with naloxone

For Opiate Addiction: Suboxone contains Buprenorphine plus a short acting opiate blocker called naloxone. Buprenorphine is a semi-synthetic partial opiate agonist. That means, it has very unique properties compared with other opiates like hydrocodone and oxycodone. Suboxone can take away the cravings for opiates so the addict can work on figuring out why he or she takes opiates in the first place. Suboxone saves lives. ...Read more

How long after a dose, is naloxone detectable in a urine screen?

How long after a dose, is naloxone detectable in a urine screen?

Not predictable: Whether naloxone is detected on a drug screen depends on each individual's body, on how much was taken, on when it was taken, on the quality of the test, on the type of chemicals the test looks for, on the diluteness of the urine, on pure luck, etc... If the person is taking the naloxone appropriately, no worries. Otherwise, stop using the stuff, and then no worries. ...Read more

Any good reasons a dr wouldn't want to trial naloxone/narcan off label for a few doses? (for depersonalization)

Any good reasons a dr wouldn't want to trial naloxone/narcan off label for a few doses? (for depersonalization)

Lack of familiarity: Most physicians who do not want to prescribe a medication off label don't prescribe because of a lack of familiarity or lack of comfort in using a particular medication.

If being tested SPECIFICALLY for naloxone, meaning only naloxone and nothing else, how long would it or its metabolites be detectable on a lab test?

Half life: Thank you for clarifying. To indirectly answer your question, half life of naloxone is about 1.6 hours. Metabolism is in the liver. 75% of all original product and metabolites will be cleared by 3days and over 90% in a week. The reported sensitivity of the serum test is to less than 1%, so extrapolating about 10 days would be required. ...Read more
