Drug Mode of Action ::
Buprenorphine exerts its analgesic effect by binding to the mu-opioid receptors in the CNS. It has a longer duration of analgesic action than morphine. Its partial agonist activity gives it a low level of physical dependence. Buprenorphine and morphine show similar dose-related resp depressant effect.
Drug Interactions ::
Plasma-buprenorphine concentrations may be affected when co-administered with drugs that induce or inhibit cytochrome P450 isoenzyme CYP3A4. Enhanced depressant effects with other CNS depressants e.g. alcohol, anaesthetics, anxiolytics, hypnotics, TCAs and antipsychotics. Potentially Fatal: Diazepam may produce resp and cardiac collapse.
