Abstract
Introduction: In 2012, it was found that 5.2% of the world population in the age group of 15-64 years had used an illicit drug once in the previous year. The annual prevalence of opiate abuse in Asia is estimated to be at 0.35%. The majority of heroin consumption in Asia occurs in China, Pakistan, Iran and India. Objective: The purpose of this review to provide evidence based clinical practice guidelines to prescribers and other health practitioners involved in the care of opioid dependent patients with a special reference to Naltrexone. Materials & Methods: Relevant literature was identified through a PubMed literature search for publications and a review was developed. Results: Buprenorphine was the earliest drug to be used successfully in India for the treatment of opiate dependence. Its use began as early as in 1993. The regimen of buprenorphine-naloxone treatment has been made available in drug treatment centers since last few years. Methadone has been launched recently as a multi site study as a pilot project in India. However, there have been no studies on Naltrexone in the SEAR region yet. Several clinical trials from different countries hold evidence that use of Naltrexone has higher efficacy, minimal toxicity and minimal safety concerns. Data also suggest superior efficacy of long acting injectable Naltrexone compared to oral Naltrexone. Conclusion: The use of opioid antagonists for long term treatment of patients with opioid addiction is one of the newer emerging modalities of treatment. It is recommended that trials on both oral and injectable Naltrexone should be started to see the efficacy in the SEAR region.
