Buprenorphine Injection Dosage

General Information on Receiving Buprenorphine Injections

Some considerations to keep in mind include the following:
 
  • The brand-name form of this medication comes in ampules. Ampules are small glass containers that are opened by snapping (breaking) the glass at the neck. In the unlikely event that you will be using this medication at home, make sure that you (or your caregiver) know how to safely open an ampule. Generic versions of the buprenorphine injection come in vials, rather than ampules.
 
  • This medication is a controlled substance because it can be abused. Proper storage and disposal are important to prevent theft. Keep the medication in a safe place.
 
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be given as prescribed.
 
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage of the buprenorphine injection, please talk with your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
