Clarification: Are you asking if Narcan (naloxone) reverses cp? No, it doesn't. Sometimes Botox is used for flexion contractures in hypertonic CP (increased muscle tone, decreased strength.) sometimes surgery is used for tight heel cords, either spinal or at the heel cords themselves.

So other narcotics will not work as long as the buprenorphine is in your system ...Read more
