  • Safety and Efficacy of Lofexidine for Medically Managed Opioid Withdrawal: A Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial. [Journal Article]
  • JAJ Addict Med 2018 Nov 29
  • Fishman M, Tirado C, … CLEEN-SLATE Team
  • CONCLUSIONS: Lofexidine 2.16 mg and 2.88 mg significantly reduced symptoms of OWS versus placebo, and increased absolute rates of completing the 7-day study by 14% and 12%, respectively (a relative increase of 85% and 71%). Data suggest that lofexidine is a generally safe and effective nonopioid treatment for opioid withdrawal. Lofexidine could serve as a withdrawal treatment option when a nonopioid agent is preferred or required, when agonist-assisted withdrawal is unavailable, when agonist discontinuation caused OWS, and during induction into maintenance treatment with opioid agonists or antagonists.
  • Dexmedetomidine Use in a Tertiary Care NICU: A Descriptive Study. [Journal Article]
  • APAnn Pharmacother 2018 Dec 03; :1060028018812089
  • Dersch-Mills DA, Banasch HL, … Howlett A
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this cohort, dexmedetomidine was often used in a postsurgical setting, with concomitant opioids, over prolonged periods. These factors appear to affect and likely confound the rates of adverse effects and withdrawal signs from dexmedetomidine. Clinicians considering the use of dexmedetomidine in a similar population can draw guidance from our data.
