Probuphine – A New Buprenorphine Implant

Probuphine® was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2016 and prior to approval had several studies conducted that aided in approving its treatment for opioid use disorder (OUD). The test made significant progress in showing participants who continued their previous scheduled regimen for opioid detox with the addition of a probuphine implant. After thorough observation from the participant study those that implemented probuphine to their treatments showed significant positive change in energy, sleep, and overall quality of life.

What makes this treatment unique, is that it provides a continual, low-level dose for up to six months for those who are already stable on low-to-moderate doses of other forms of buprenorphine. Additionally, it is the only type of treatment that is in the form of an implant, whereas other opioid medications are typically found in forms of pills or films. This alone provides patients with a convenient means of not needing to resort to taking a pill daily.
