A 24-year-old with panic, tearing, nausea, vomiting, and repeated yawning just can’t stop moving around after trying to restart buprenorphine/naloxone after 2 weeks of heavy heroin use.
3 doses of 4 mg IN naloxone in rapid succession in a patient down from presumed heroin OD is in severe withdrawal 20 minutes after rolls into the ED.
A 42-year-old M runs out of his source for methadone (was buying 120 mg/day from a friend who “disappeared”) and decides to try buprenorphine. He takes a piece of an 8/2 mg film (1/2) about 18 hours after his last use and feels mostly restless and myalgias. He notices that his heart rate is up but he’s not having more severe symptoms. He calls his outpatient clinic provider about an hour after the onset of symptoms asking for help.
