Buprenorphine is an analgesic with low abuse potential. It is a painkiller that has been around for decades. It is scheduled, in the near future, to be approved by the FDA for another use, which will be as an opiate reversal drug for heroin use. The name for Buprenorphine, as an opiate reversal drug, will be Buprenex.
Buprenex will be used to cure the withdrawal symptoms of heroin withdrawal. The time needed to cure heroin withdrawal symptoms is usually measured in hours when using Buprenex. Depending on how fast you detox the drug poisons out of your system, that will determine how long you need to continue Buprenex to avoid heroin withdrawal symptoms. There are several articles on this web site describing ways to detox from the use of heroin. Buprenex stops heroin withdrawal symptoms, but it is not a detox.
The idea of using methadone, to stop heroin withdrawal symptoms, is to substitute a lesser narcotic for a stronger narcotic. Methadone is still an opiate that poisons the body, but it is not as powerful as heroin. The idea is to use methadone to eventually wean yourself off opiates. However, methadone still is an opiate and you will get withdrawal symptoms. Buprenex stops withdrawal symptoms.
The RUWC web site would like to focus on pregnant heroin addicts. Buprenex is a substance that can possibly prevent newborn drug dependency. Buprenex prevents heroin or methadone withdrawal symptoms. A pregnant heroin addict can use Buprenex to stop her withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms from heroin or methadone are usually too dangerous for a fetus and so drug babies must stay drug babies until after birth. Using Buprenex, you can stop withdrawal symptoms and this may give the pregnant heroin addict the ability to stop heroin and let their baby be born drug free.
Presently Buprenex, under different trade names, is being used in England and France, where it has already been used thousands of times. We would like to refer to Dr. Marquet's Pub Med article entitled, "Buprenorphine Withdrawal Syndrome in a Newborn." This article describes a pregnant woman that was addicted to heroin and rapidly withdrew from illicit drug use, after starting Buprenorphine treatment. Twenty hours after birth, no illicit drugs were detected in the newborn's blood, urine, or merconium. The child still had a weak withdrawal syndrome on the second day of life, but recovered rapidly. The Buprenorphine treatment helped prevent withdrawal symptoms in the newborn. We suggest you check out the Pub Med web site and the different articles linked to Dr. Marquet's article and learn more about Buprenorphine and its ability to block opiates in the body.
The understanding of Buprenorphine is that it an analgesic of low abuse potential, used for decades as a painkiller, and it will soon have a new approved FDA use as an opiate reversal drug. Buprenex will be a way for pregnant heroin addicts to avoid heroin withdrawal symptoms, thus providing a way for drug babies to be born without drug dependency.
Buprenorphine has been in the testing stage as an alternative to methadone since the early eighties. The answer to the question, "why as it taken so long to approve Buprenorphine for the use of blocking opiates," is not known by RUWC web site. The only reason at the present, that it will eventually get approval is because an English company named Reckitt and Colman Products has established Buprenorphine's safety and effectiveness as
an opiate reversal drug in England and France. Therefore the FDA does not require expensive and long term testing of Buprenorphine as an opiate reversal drug.
RUWC therefore offers thanks to Reckitt & Colman, for their efforts to spread the use of Burenorphine as an opiate blocker and give all heroin addicts the opportunity to choose stopping heroin without withdrawal symptoms. We at RUWC believe this is a heavenly gift, especially if many drug users stop using because of an alternative method to stop drug use without the withdrawal symptoms. Pregnant heroin addicts can choose to use Buprenex and stop withdrawal symptoms. Drug addiction is not a babies choice. There are many perils to being born into the world. Using Buprenex, pregnant heroin addicts can eliminate at least one peril, newborn baby drug addiction.
Buprenex is still not FDA approved. However, if you are a heroin addict that wants to use Buprenex, it is legal to use in the United States with a doctor's prescription. The reason is a drug can be used for other than its approved use when there is sufficient proof and medical literature for the other uses. Furthermore, we will provide a link later in this article that features a doctor run pain center that uses Buprenex right now for heroin addicts. RUWC believes there are still obstacles to acquiring Buprenex, but it is your determination that will decide if you can get it. You need a doctor who will read about its use or already knows of its use as an opiate reversal drug and then he can prescribe it.
Furthermore, Buprenex is not expensive. Each oral tablet is usually only several dollars and depending on how strong your heroin habit, sometimes 5-10 tablets a day may be enough at the start of using Buprenex. As you become healthier the dose usually decreases. For a long time, perhaps because of cost, length of FDA trial times, or perhaps other reasons, Buprenorphine has not been made available as a cure for heroin withdrawal symptoms. It is finally available and everyone should spread the news.
Spread the news of Buprenex. If even one baby is born drug free due to your effort, then your effort is greater than can be counted in heaven. A baby being born into the world does not deserve drug addiction.
We at RUWC would like pregnant woman who cannot afford Buprenex to e-mail us at, firstname.lastname@example.org, so we may assist you in getting Buprenex. Anyone interested in Buprenex needs to ask a doctor or try calling the U.S. office of Reckitt and Colman, at 804-379-1090 or 800-444-7599.
In conclusion, Buprenorphine has been around for decades and has been safely used as a painkiller post operatively. It is even used for pregnant women (not yet for pregnant heroin addicts, but we hope this will happen soon). It is of low abuse potential and may have minor withdrawal symptoms or none at all. It is an opiate blocker that can stop heroin withdrawal symptoms without leaving you addicted to Buprenorphine. Finally, England and France have been using Buprenorphine safely and effectively thousands of times as an opiate reversal drug. Buprenex is expected to be approved soon by the FDA, according to Reckitt & Colman. FDA approval is not an easy task to achieve and this highlights the fact that the U.S. government believes Buprenorphine, as an opiate reversal drug, is safe and effective. Using Buprenex is truly giving a gift to heroin addicts and a heavenly gift to any drug baby born drug free.
Many people have contacted the web site about where to get Buprenex. We mentioned doctors can prescribe it right now, even before FDA approval. We also offer the following link to the, "Center for Pain Relief & Detoxification Therapy," at the address www.cprflorida com. This facility uses Buprenex right now! Women who are pregnant heroin addicts can contact them to stop withdrawal symptoms. This would be a great gift to your unborn child. Good luck to all and thanks for coming to the web site.
