Getting started on buprenorphine: Options for the practice and the patient
Starting a patient on buprenorphine can be tricky because of some pharmacologic quirks that can precipitate opioid withdrawal if it’s not started cautiously. That can be done with a clinic visit dedicated to that step, or providing a few days’ supply and coaching the patient on starting it at home. Both ways have risks, and both can work. We will review both options, their pros and cons, and some practical guidance on how to do it in your practice.
