Hard 8: Fake MUs! A Review of Atypical Opioid Medications

Atypical opioids meds can be confusing. It’s “only” a partial agonist, they say. They ask, “How can an opioid overdose medication treat pain?”. They ask, quizzically, “There are multiple parts of the typical mu opioid receptor?” It’s the best of times, and the worst of times, as Dickens said best, yet perhaps not in reference to methadone utilization. It takes 2, baby! Or even more! Mixed-action opioid medications pack a 1-2 punch, or sometimes even a Buy 1 Get 4! Join us for a discussion on these “atypical opioids,” including low dose naltrexone, levorphanol, tramadol, tapentadol, methadone, and, of course, buprenorphine.
