OxyContin maker gets patent for drug to take care of opioid dependancy

The Sacklers - whose name graces wings of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim - opened the second firm just four months after Purdue plead guilty to misleading doctors over how easily patients can get hooked on OxyContin in 2007, former employees told the paper.

"Thus, if opioids are taken by healthy human issues with a drug-seeking behaviour they'll lead to psychological moreover to physical dependence."Purdue Pharma is the subject of many proceedings for allegedly fueling the opioid epidemic". In addition, Colorado's attorney general is now suing Purdue Pharma for its apparent role in boosting the opioid crisis, sources say.

In 2016, there were more than 63,000 drug overdose deaths in the United States, and more than 66 percent of them were attributed to opioids, according to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

A member of the family that owns Purdue Pharma - which is being sued by more than 1,000 jurisdictions for its alleged role in seeding the opioid crisis with its pain medication OxyContin - has been awarded a patent for a treatment for opioid use disorder. Then earlier this year, the Wall Street Journal reported that Purdue planned to stop promoting the drug. The Washington Post highlights a statement by Luke Nasta, director of NY addiction treatment center Camelot. "While our opioid medicines account for less than 2% of total prescriptions, we will continue to work collaboratively with the state toward bringing meaningful solutions to address this public health challenge". He adds that Sackler's family "shouldn't be allowed to peddle any more synthetic opiates-and that includes opioid substitutes". The drug is an altered form of buprenorphine, better known as Suboxone, which is a mild form of an opiate drug that helps curb cravings and can be offered as a temporary substitute for people addicted to heroin or other opioid drugs.
