Date:8/13/2009

BRISTOL, Tenn., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- King Pharmaceuticals((R)), Inc. (NYSE: KG) today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved EMBEDA(TM) (morphine sulfate and naltrexone hydrochloride) Extended Release Capsules for oral use, a long-acting Schedule II opioid analgesic for the management of moderate to severe pain when a continuous, around-the-clock opioid analgesic is needed for an extended period of time. EMBEDA(TM) is the first FDA-approved long-acting opioid that is designed to reduce drug liking and euphoria when tampered with by crushing or chewing.

"Today's approval of EMBEDA(TM) marks a milestone in pain care, and King is proud to bring this new technology to the U.S. market," said Brian A. Markison, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of King. "King is committed to providing resources and medicines to patients and healthcare professionals to achieve optimal pain control. We are focused on developing medicines that use novel technologies designed to reduce drug liking and make it more difficult to extract the active ingredient. We anticipate a September 2009 launch for EMBEDA(TM)."

Utilizing King's proprietary technology, EMBEDA(TM) contains extended-release morphine pellets, each with an inner core of naltrexone hydrochloride, an opioid receptor antagonist. If taken as directed, the morphine relieves pain while the sequestered naltrexone hydrochloride passes through the body with no intended clinical effect. If EMBEDA(TM) is crushed or chewed, the naltrexone is released and absorbed with the morphine, r
