Methadone and buprenorphine are the only two opioids that are
indicated for the management of both pain and opioid-related drug
addiction. Both present unique challenges to the general
practitioner and pain specialist, requiring a separate analysis
from the rest of the drugs in the same family.
Handbook of Methadone Prescribing and Buprenorphine Therapy is
an invaluable guide to the safe use of these opioids. Authored by
clinical and academic leaders from a variety of settings and
backgrounds, this book includes chapters on pharmacology, adverse
effects, safe rotation from other opioids, cardiac toxicity,
prescribing, pharmacokinetics, equianalgesic dose and replacement
This comprehensive text provides clinicians, researchers,
policy-makers and academicians a resource for all the relevant
points in methadone prescribing and buprenorphine therapy.
