What is Sublocade?
Sublocade is a prescription medication that is used to treat opioid addiction. Doctors will prescribe it to patients who are experiencing intense withdrawal symptoms and cravings. To be able to use Sublocade, a patient must first be undergoing treatment with Buprenorphine.
A partial agonist, Buprenorphine, works by affecting different brain receptors, which will cause less euphoria and physical dependence. It also decreases the effects of withdrawal symptoms and prevents cravings that are common during and after detox. Sublocade is used to provide Buprenorphine over a one month period at a controlled dose regularly. It also sustains the same level of Buprenorphine in the bloodstream, and it will last throughout the month.
While Buprenorphine can be used to help with chronic pain, Sublocade is used only to treat opioid addiction.
Sublocade (Buprenorphine) Injection
Sublocade is given by a medical professional as an injection in the stomach just under the skin. It can only be provided in a licensed health care facility and be prescribed by a doctor. The dose of Sublocade given will last for approximately 26 days and prevents symptoms of withdrawal from opioids.
While taking Sublocade, the patient must also be part of a complete treatment plan that includes therapy. Participating in an inpatient program is not required for taking Sublocade. However, anyone going through addiction treatment must have a community or some other kind of support system.
Is Sublocade the Same as Suboxone?
Both Suboxone and Sublocade are used in treating Opioid Use Disorder. However, Suboxone uses both Buprenorphine and Naloxone, while Sublocade only uses Buprenorphine. Suboxone is more popular in some cases because it uses both prescription medications.
Naloxone is a full opioid antagonist. It is able to reverse the effects of opioids and even block them entirely. Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist and can prevent or control withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
Side Effects of Sublocade
The following is a list of possible side effects that could occur while taking Sublocade. Please speak to a doctor or one of our medical professionals at our San Diego Suboxone clinic before participating in a Sublocade treatment plan.
- Injection Site Pain
- Redness at the Injection Site
It is important to seek medical assistance if any of these effects begin or worsen after a time.
It is possible for the body to become physically dependent on Sublocade. Because of this, mild withdrawal symptoms could occur once a patient stops receiving Sublocade. These symptoms could include:
- Muscle Aches
- Feeling Hot or Cold
Speak to a doctor if experiencing any of these symptoms. Other medications may be able to help ease the withdrawal.
