Currently used methods of relieving opium withdrawal syndrome (OSA) – psychopharmacotherapy, pyrroxan, clonidine, atropinomatous therapy, combinations of cholinolytic and curariform drugs, opium agonists and antagonists, hemosorption, plasmapheresis, infusion therapy have a wide range of contraindications; are associated with a high risk of complications and side effects and the risk of drug dependence.
Many methods require small surgical interventions, anesthetic and resuscitation personnel and equipment. Table 1 shows the so-called “resuscitation” scheme for managing patients with OSA – the most common in domestic drug addiction practice. One glance at this table is already enough for even a non-specialist to understand that with such a management of patients it is, if not about the appointment of anesthesia, then at least about the introduction of patients into a state of deep sedation. All this limits their use in widespread drug treatment practice.
BRT, as we have already reported, is a fairly effective alternative to traditional methods of OSA treatment, allowing in 15% of cases to stop OSA symptoms without prescribing pharmacotherapy, and in other cases, to significantly reduce the dose of pharmacological preparations. In support of the above, the medical histories of 100 opium addicts who were treated at the Medinar clinic in 1996–1998 and who received BR drugs in combination with pharmacotherapy at the stage of OSA treatment were analyzed .
Table 2 shows the average doses of pharmacological drugs prescribed to patients with OSA during the first five days of treatment in cases when the isolated administration of BR drugs was ineffective. As can be seen from Table 2, the pharmacotherapy prescribed to our patients, in terms of volume and doses, had nothing to do with the intensive therapy traditionally used to treat OSA.
The analysis showed that in none of the cases out of 100 intravenous prescriptions were required; most of the psychotropic drugs were prescribed to correct nighttime sleep and psychopathic symptoms. The therapy was easily tolerated by the patients, without the phenomena of neurolepsy, “congestion”, drowsiness, asthenia, etc .
