New guideline for prescribing methadone and buprenorphine released

The College has released a new guideline to assist physicians who wish to prescribe Suboxone® to treat patients with opioid use disorders.

Physicians in BC should be familiar with the new Methadone and Buprenorphine: Clinical Practice Guideline for Opioid Use Disorder document should they choose to prescribe Suboxone® (sublingual buprenorphine/naloxone), or its generic versions. Further updates will be made to this guideline in the coming months.
