CompDrug Offers Sublocade as another Medication for Opioid Use Disorder
CompDrug has added another medication choice for medically appropriate patients.
In addition to offering Methadone, Naltrexone (Vivtrol), and Suboxone, CompDrug now offers Sublocade. Suboxone and Sublocade are two different formulations of the medication buprenorphine; suboxone is a sublingual film which is placed under the tongue and contains naloxone, while Sublocade is an injectable form of buprenorphine taken once per month.
As with any medication, what is right for each patient is a decision between you and your medical provider. For more information or questions, please speak with your counselor or a CompDrug medical provider.
