Probuphine Implants Continue to be Successful

MedNOW Clinics has placed over ten probuphine implants to patients. Probuphine implants are used to treat opiate use disorder in patients who have been stabilized on 8 mg or less of buprenorphine for at least three months. The probuphine implant has the advantage over oral buprenorphine in that it is always at a consistent level in the body, does not require daily dosing and lasts for at least six months. According to Dr. Moore, "Our patients with the implant are doing extremely well with no side effects. The implant is very easy to insert here in the clinic. Patients tolerate the procedure well and really love the implant."
