Optimizing treatment for opioid-exposed infants

The rise in opioid use has left many newborns the unfortunate and unintended victims of substance use disorder in the form of neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome (NOWS). While the traditional method of treatment has involved the administration of medication on a fixed tapering schedule, researchers out of Boston Medical Center have explored a new approach that initiates treatment with nonpharmacologic intervention followed by symptom-triggered medication dosing. Based on the research findings, fixed tapering dosing may no longer be the standard treatment method for NOWS cases, but more of a last resort.
