    • Overview

      Pharmacy technicians can lead the conversation on buprenorphine, fully knowing that buprenorphine is perhaps the most highly misunderstood medication of our time. Being utilized within the indications of pain management and opioid use disorder (opioid addiction) certainly propels it to the top of any polarized discussions to say the least. Join us for a dynamic discussion on the complicated simplicities of buprenorphine pharmacology including partial mu opioid agonism, mu opioid receptor affinity, half-life related dosage selections, CYP-450 metabolism and respective interactions, maximum dosage recommendations, morphine milligram equivalent (MME) calculations, and the infamous respiratory depression relative ceiling effects. Dispelling every rumor, one pharmacological principal at a time, helping you help your patients every day.
