Tapering from buprenorphine or methadone for pregnant women in opioid maintenance treatment (OMT) - project description


Norwegian Institute of Public Health has been commissioned by the Norwegian Directorate of Health to carry out a systematic review of effects of methadone or buprenorphine tapering during pregnancy.


Norwegian experts disagree in the question of whether women who become pregnant during opioid maintenance treatment (OMT), should have their OMT drug (methadone or buprenorphine) tapered, or whether they should continue maintenance treatment. We will systematically summarise research of effects for mother and child of tapering compared to continued maintenance treatment during pregnancy.
