success. Using heroin 27 years. Allergic to suboxone, trying to find something else besides methadone.
Yes, this drug was taken off the market about 8 years ago due top the fact that there were some cases of heart problems. I was much like a methadone on steroids in layman's terms. You could dose once every couple days. From what I remember about this drug, it was very successful and it was a knee jerk reaction when it was taken off the market. You will likely see it reappear under a different name. All they do is change the molecule a bit and rename it but they have to be able to market it. It's all about money in the end... Dave
Levacetylmethadol (INN), levomethadyl acetate (USAN), Orlaam (trade name) or levo-α-acetylmethadol (LAAM) is a synthetic opioid similar in structure to methadone. It has a long duration of action due to its active metabolites. It was approved in 1993 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in the treatment of opioid dependence. In 2001, Orlaam was removed from the European market due to reports of life threatening ventricular rhythm disorders. In 2003, Roxane Laboratories, Inc. discontinued Orlaam in the US.
