NY Times article: “Addiction Treatment With a Dark Side”

On Nov 17th 2013, an article was published in the New York Times by Deborah Sontag titled “Addiction Treatment With a Dark Side”. This in-depth article sheds light on the mu opioid agonist buprenorphine, most commonly sold under the name Suboxone. The article describes both the positive impact buprenorphine has had battling opioid addiction and also, the potential abuse; typical side effects of mu opioid receptor agonists. Suboxone is formulated combining buprenorphine (long acting, mu opioid receptor partial agonist) and naloxone (mu opioid receptor antagonist) to lower abuse potential. Unfortunately, recreational drug users have been abusing suboxone for years even though the “high” felt is minimal in comparison to other commonly abused mu opioid agonists. Suboxone generated $1.55 billion in U.S. sales last year (surpassing Viagra and Adderall). The inconvenience of methodone clinics and the limited choices for doctors trying to treat opioid addiction, suboxone prescriptions and sales have exploded over the last 10 years. Unfortunately some doctors have carelessly over prescribed suboxone in an effort to generate revenue for their clinics, which has increased abuse of the drug. This article breaks down the arguments from skeptics and believers of the blockbuster drug suboxone and other buprenorphine formulations, providing a sound debate on the controversial drug. This article was followed up a day later as a two part series. The second article was titled “At Clinics, Troubled Lives and Turbulent Care”. Part 1 is worth a read and if you are intrigued, part 2 sheds light on the clinics prescribing these pain medications. Enjoy!
