Buprenorphine

Buprenorphine is or has been marketed under the names of Temgesic, Buprenex, Subutex, or Suboxone.

Description
Buprenorphine, an Opioid narcotic, was first marketed in the 1980s as an analgesic for inflammation and pain relief with approximately 24-40 times the potency of morphine, and can be used for the treatment of post-operative and chronic pain due to cancer or musculoskeletal issues. It is also now widely used in the management of Opioid dependence to alleviate painful withdrawal symptoms.

Side Effects
Beside addiction, side effects of short or long term use of Buprenorphine are drowsiness, dizziness, headaches, muscle weakness, nausea or vomiting, dark urine, constipation, stomach or abdominal pain, respiratory challenges, mental or mood alteration, depression, jaundice, and vision changes. Allergic reactions can include: rash, itching, swelling, severe dizziness, and trouble breathing.

Dependence and Withdrawals
Although Buprenorphine is prescribed by some doctors as a substitute for other opiate addictions, or for treatment of pain, because it is an opiate derivative, it is also addicting. When trying to quit, withdrawal symptoms such as muscle aches, sweats, depression and emotional distress, anxiety, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, and acute pain can occur. Buprenorphine can also cause dangerous contraindications when combined with sedatives or alcohol such as extremely high blood pressure and fatal respiratory depression.

Darvocet

Description
Darvocet, a narcotic pain reliever, is a combination of propoxyphene and acetaminophen. It is used to alleviate mild to moderate pain without fever and Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS). Darvocet is highly addictive and if dependence develops can be very dangerous. Symptoms associated with withdrawals include cravings, anxiety, fatigue, nausea, diarrhea, muscle aches, restlessness, shaking, abnormal skin sensations, and restless legs syndrome.

Fentanyl

Other names:
Other brands include Actiq, Alfenta, Sufenta, Ultiva, Wildnil, Sublimaze, Durogesic, Fentora, Onsolis, Instanyl

Description
Fentanyl is a potent analgesic, approximately 100 times more potent than morphine, which is used to treat “breakthrough” chronic or acute pain that comes on suddenly for short periods of time. This type of pain is common with cancer and is pain which periodically “breaks through” consistently used pain medications for opiate tolerant individuals.

Side Effects
Side effects include severe dependency, tolerance and addiction, diarrhea, nausea, constipation, dry mouth, somnolence, confusion, weakness, sweating, abdominal pain, headache, fatigue, anorexia, weight loss, dizziness, anxiety, hallucinations, depression, flu like symptoms, and respiratory challenges.

Dependence and Withdrawal
Biological effects of Fentanyl are similar to those of heroin, with the exception that the effects last for a shorter time period. Because of this, it is even more quickly addictive than heroin. Non-medical use can be dangerous often due to overdose and can result in death. Fentanyl is sold illegally in patch form, “lollipops”, and powder, which is often mixed with heroin. Withdrawal symptoms can be mild or severe and include cravings, sweating, nausea and vomiting, runny nose, yawning, restlessness, weakness, cramps, diarrhea, fever and chills, muscle and bone aches, irritability, agitation, and muscle twitching or in more severe cases, seizures, or abnormal skin sensations.

Heroin

Description
Heroin, a highly addictive and illegal recreational drug, is a synthetic derivative of morphine, originally from the opium poppy. It is typically injected by the user, and induces what is known as “drug euphoria.” Marketed in the late 1800’s as a cough suppressant and a replacement for morphine, it was later discovered to be more quickly addicting than morphine, and in 1924, sales were banned in the U.S. Inherent in its use are a number of life threatening risks:  overdose, abscesses (from injection), and exposure to HIV and Hepatitis B and C through poor needle maintenance.

Side Effects
Besides being highly addictive, typically within a few days of first use, short term side effects include alternating drowsiness and alertness, dry mouth, hot flashes, respiratory challenges, and muscle weakness. Long term users may experience: addiction, increased tolerance, heart problems, severe respiratory problems, decreased liver functions, and abscesses.

Dependence and Withdrawal
Heroin addiction develops very quickly and overcoming the addiction without intervention is difficult. While not life threatening, symptoms can include sweats and chills, dehydration, body and muscle weakness, anxiety, depression or thoughts of suicide, abdominal cramps, insomnia, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, and fever or convulsions.

Methadone

Methadone is or has been marketed under the names Symoron, Dolophine, Amidone, Methadose, Physeptone, Heptadon, and Phy.

Description
Methadone, a synthetic Opioid agonist, was invented in Germany during World War II for pain relief. It was not used until after the war when in 1947, Eli Lilly took over the manufacturing facility and began wide scale clinical trials. Hailed as an innovative new pain reliever, it was rarely used for pain relief, but in 1968, it was discovered to be an effective treatment for heroin addiction. Now, it is most widely used as maintenance and deterrent for heroin users and pain management.

Side Effects
Methadone’s usefulness in the treatment of heroin and morphine addiction is due to its high cross tolerance levels and long effect duration. It can be used to stabilize withdrawal symptoms from heroin and morphine, and if used in larger doses, can block the euphoric effects of the drugs. As a result, dependence on heroin and Morphine can be stopped.

Dependence and Withdrawal
Methadone is a powerful narcotic and while it has been used as an effective treatment for drug addiction maintenance, long term use is not recommended as it is also addicting and has numerous side effects such as constipation, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, headache, sweating, itching, nausea, vomiting and weakness.

Withdrawal from Methadone can produce side effects such as dizziness, fever and chills, muscle aches, insomnia, high blood pressure, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, agitation and anxiety, depression, delusions, paranoia and hallucinations.

They are also used to treat some forms of depression and associated anxiety for schizophrenia. Generally, benzodiazepines act as hypnotics in high doses, anxiolytics in moderate doses, and sedatives in lower doses. Of all of the drugs marketed in the United States for treatment of central nervous systems disorders, they are the most prescribed and therefore, have the most potential for abuse and addiction.

Side Effects 
The most common side effects of benzodiazepines are obviously drowsiness, dizziness, decreased alertness and concentration. Other long term effects could be decreased libido, depression, hypotension, and nausea. Paradoxical effects could include aggression, violence, impulsivity, irritability, and thoughts of suicide, and anterograde amnesia.

Dependence and Withdrawal
Benzodiazepine addiction withdrawal can be life threatening. Tolerance develops quickly and abrupt interruption of use can produce two groups of symptoms; rebound symptoms which are the return of the symptoms for which the patient was originally being treated before, and actual withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms include irritability, sweating, insomnia, gastric problems, tremors, agitation, fearfulness and muscle spasms, depression, suicidal thoughts, and slight possibilities of psychosis, seizures, and delirium tremens.
