At Banks Apothecary, we have an ongoing commitment to provide patients with the best care and service available at any specialty pharmacy. Today, we’re proud to announce we can offer a new oral medication used in the fight against opioid abuse. LUCEMYRA is indicated for mitigation of opioid withdrawal symptoms to facilitate abrupt opioid discontinuation in adults.
What Is LUCEMYRA?
LUCEMYRA is a non-opioid prescription medicine used in adults to help with the symptoms of opioid withdrawal that may happen when you stop taking an opioid suddenly. LUCEMYRA will not completely prevent the symptoms of opioid withdrawal, which may include feeling sick, stomach cramps, muscle spasms or twitching, feeling of cold, heart pounding, muscular tension, aches and pains, yawning, runny eyes and sleep problems (insomnia).
LUCEMYRA is not a treatment for opioid use disorder. If you have been diagnosed with opioid use disorder (opioid addiction), your healthcare provider may prescribe LUCEMYRA as part of a complete treatment program for your opioid use disorder (opioid addiction).
It is not known if LUCEMYRA is safe and effective in children.
