Abstract

Previous results from our team have shown that opiate dependent women who received substitution during pregnancy and early post partum period had rather similar results on birth, neonatal withdrawal syndrome (NWS) and perinatal patterns of the infant, whether they received oral methadone or sublingual buprenorphine treatment. Despite few differences concerning NWS age of maximum and late premature newborn, both the methadone and buprenorphine regimen had a group of severe cases grouping several harmful factors with poor or very poor results.
