Buprenorphine Cuts Length of Stay Nearly in Half for Infants Withdrawing from Opioids

Babies born to women who have used opioids during pregnancy are at risk of suffering withdrawal symptoms, collectively called neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS).

To reduce the severity of these symptoms, infants are treated with opioids and then slowly weaned off, requiring a prolonged hospital stay. In a new study, lead author, Walter K.

Adeniyi-Jones, a neonatologist who treats newborns with NAS) demonstrates that a more effective treatment can safely cut the duration of therapy.
