TUESDAY, Nov. 4 (HealthDay News) — Teens treated for addiction to heroin or prescription painkillers are less likely to continue using these drugs if they receive extended treatment with a combination of detoxification medications, rather than short-term drug therapy, a new study found.

Both buprenorphine and naloxone have been shown to be effective in treating opioid addiction, but only limited use of these drugs has been recommended for younger patients. Buprenorphine works by relieving withdrawal symptoms and naloxone prevents or reverses the effects of injected opioids.

“If you keep these young kids, average one-and-a-half years of addiction, on buprenorphine-naloxone they did a lot better,” said lead study author Dr. George Woody, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Department of Psychiatry. “When you took them off the buprenorphine-naloxone, their opioid use went up.”

Here is some practical advise from a former V addict. Start to take less and less each day. Slowly wean yourself off of the drug. It is hard but the way I finally stopped was I went on a vacation and purposefully did not take any pills – and knew that I would not be able to get any. It worked!

Or if you are legal age – try to have a drink instead of taking vicodin. Studies have shown that excessive vicodin usage can lead to stomach ulcers and destroy your liver. I have found that a double vodka and coke will relax me just like a 750mg pill of vicodin. Take the drink on an empty stomach. It feels comparable.
