What is Lucemyra?
Lucemyra is an FDA (Food and drug administration) approved medication manufactured by US WorldMeds, LLC for patients above 18 years of age, used to help in the mitigation of opioid withdrawal symptoms that may happen when patients stop taking an opioid suddenly (abrupt opioid discontinuation). Lucemyra will not completely prevent the symptoms of opioid withdrawal and is not a treatment for opioid use disorder (OUD).
Lucemyra is a central alpha-2 adrenergic agonist. Its mechanism of action is to decrease the release of norepinephrine by binding to receptors on adrenergic neurons. This reduces the neurochemical surge that produces withdrawal symptoms.
Symptoms of opioid withdrawal include:
- Aches and pains
- Stomach cramps
- Feeling sick
- Muscle spasms/twitching
- Insomnia/problems sleeping
- A feeling of coldness/chills
- Muscular tension
- Heart pounding
- Runny eyes
What doses of Lucemyra are available?
Lucemyra is available in 0.18mg oral tablet form.
The usual Lucemyra dosage is three 0.18 mg tablets (0.54mg) taken orally 4 times daily at 5- to 6-hour intervals. Lucemyra treatment may be continued for up to 14 days with dosing guided by symptoms.
Lucemyra use is discontinued by gradual dose reduction over 2 to 4 days.
Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
