Buprenex Injection Information

This medicine comes in the form of an injection, and can be given in a muscle or by intravenous infusion (by IV). As an opioid narcotic, Buprenex works by binding to certain pain receptors in the body.
 
Although most people tolerate this injection well, side effects may occur and can include drowsiness, nausea, and dizziness. If reactions occur, they are typically minor and easy to treat. Buprenex also has the potential for abuse. In fact, it is classified as a controlled substance in the United States, meaning there are special rules and regulations for using it.
