Retrospective Analysis of a Buprenorphine and Ketamine Dual Prescription Patient Cohort

Researchers: Hailey Briseno; Lucinda Grande, MD

Research focus: There exists significant overlap among mental health conditions (MH), opioid use disorder (OUD), and chronic pain in primary care patients, which presents a significant challenge in managing these conditions while mitigating risk of problematic behaviors, hyperalgesia, and overdose. This study characterizes the use of buprenorphine and ketamine dual prescription in a primary care patient cohort with co-occurring disorders and assesses the observed changes in prescription opioid use and associated risk.
