Consumers Desperate For Measures To Curb Prescription Drug Abuse
Date:8/21/2014

abuse deterrent technologies (ADFs) are being developed to make it more difficult to tamper with or otherwise abuse prescription opioids. Examples of ADFs include gelling, hardness, bittering agents, anti-crush mechanisms and extended release. 

Recently, two powerful painkillers have been approved by the FDA.  Targiniq ER was approved with an ADF that blocks the drug's effect when crushed, and Zohydro, which is ten times stronger than Vicodin, was approved without an abuse deterrence of any kind. Medical groups, law enforcement agencies and state leaders have expressed serious concern over the potential for abuse of Zohydro. 

While OxyContin introduced an abuse deterrent version of its product in 2010 and we have seen the abuse of this prescription drug dramatically decline, there is currently no mandatory requirement to include abuse deterrents in painkillers or attention-deficit disorder medications.

"What also struck me was that most respondents – seventy-five percent – believe that prescription costs are too high, yet almost the same percentage are willing to pay more for abuse deterrent drugs," Repass said.  "That is another indication of how serious the abuse problem has become."

The survey was conducted from August 6 – 13 and included 1,501 respondents who answered questions through an online consumer panel.
