I haven't heard of it, but it sounds very intriguing. I wonder how effective it will be at preventing abuse. I'm glad to hear they are starting to develop ways to deter addicts from crushing up meds. My idiot neighbors did that a few weeks ago. The police & ambulance came. I never heard from them again. I think the one woman is in an in-patient SA program. I'm not sure whatever happened to the other woman. I hope she survived. Of course, then that all just ends up affecting the rest of us. The women had somebody else's prescription bottle (not sure whether it was with or without that person's knowledge) and of course the police's view on it was that people should just never be prescribed that medication. What a mess.

I sure hope that this both helps CPers & keeps addicts disinterested in the drug. Unfortunately, I don't qualify for it since I have thyroid problems, but otherwise I'd be willing to give it a try. Good luck with it!

Actually I heard about this long time ago, they're making one with oxycodone too. My Suboxone has Naloxone in it, but it takes absoutly no effect when I use it right. I'm thinking the same thing is going on with this med. I think it's so awesome how they're getting tricky with these new pain meds, not to only stop abuse but to help stop tolerence. And hopefully doctors will be more opened to prescribing pain meds to people if they knew the pain meds they where prescribing cant be abused. But then again abusers will always find a way around these things.

I was excited to find they where making Suboxone in these under skin pellets that works for 6 months. I thought that would be wonderful that I wouldnt have to take any pain meds daily, and just get them replaced every 6 months (getting these kind of things wouldnt bother me). And they can put as many as they want under the skin til it's effective for the patient. but of course they company ran out of money so right now it's on hold..grrrrr.....

Actually alot of these compaines are running short on money, so all these cool new meds I hear aobut are being put on hold for the time being, probably for many years...

I'm glad to hear this is finally on the market. There are hopes of those with chronic pain who truly need narcotic medication but, as said above, the ones who abuse it are messing things up for the rest of us. I just hope the insurance companies get on board with this. My guess is that it will be expensive. But for those who need pain relief and have a history of abuse, they may be allowed to get this medication. Time will tell...

Glad this thread was started!

This one has Morphine in it as well as the Nalaxone pellets...thats so you can't crush it up...if you crush the pellets then it blocks the morphine...I'm not a big fan of Morphine, but I am a fan of anything that will help CPer's...


It was just approved last month by the FDA....
