Important Update: Buprenorphine Base 0.5mg/ml, 1.0 mg/mL, 3.0 mg/mL-Currently unavailable from Wedgewood Pharmacy

An email was sent out on June 4th, 2024 to all Washington State University users of extended-release buprenorphine compounded from Wedgewood pharmacy indicating that all formulations are currently unavailable until mid-to-late July & October 2024. This includes compounded Bup ER 0.5 mg/ml, 1.0 mg/ml and 3.0 mg/ml which is not available until October.

Please see this Controlled Substances News post on the OCV website for another available option, Ethiqa XR for use in rats and mice. You need to have a DEA Controlled Substance registration to purchase this product, and your ASAF would need to be amended since the dosage is different. More information about obtaining a DEA registration can be accessed here (also linked on the IACUC Resources page). Ethiqa XR is available from several veterinary distributers.

Please contact the Office of the Campus Veterinarian with any questions.
