Re: new hydrocodone

I remember reading somewhere they are trying to patent another extended release hydrocodone.

Re: new hydrocodone

SAN DIEGO, July 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zogenix, Inc. (Nasdaq:ZGNX), a pharmaceutical company commercializing and developing products for the treatment of central nervous system disorders and pain, announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted for review the New Drug Application (NDA) for Zohydro ERô (hydrocodone bitartrate extended-release capsules), Zogenix's lead investigational product candidate for the treatment of moderate to severe chronic pain. Under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA), the goal for a standard review of an NDA is 10 months from NDA submission, and the FDA has assigned a target action date of March 1, 2013 for the Zohydro ER NDA

I don't know if the mods will keep this up but just thought I'd post.

Will this be LA med? Also, I'm doing well on the hydro, but I was wondering if they make LA hydro? Sorry if this should be in another thread.

Re: new hydrocodone

I believe both short and long acting hydro without additives are in testing (maybe just the long acting though). However, you can get either right now if your doctor is willing to write a prescription for a compounding pharmacy and they are willing to make it for you. However, as this makes it a Schedule II and not all doctors are familiar with compounded meds, this isn't a very popular option. The short acting is much easier to get compounded (not all of them will do long acting).

A way to bring this up to your doctor without asking for a med by name or instructing them to do it may be to say you are concerned about your tylenol intake and would there be something similar with less/no tylenol. They have hydro with aspirin or ibuprophen instead of tylenol, but I don't think that is much better, especially if you are taking these around the clock.

If you need or could benefit from a long acting med, there are quite a few meds which could be dosed equivalent to an around the clock dose of hydro and likely better stabilize your pain levels (although Schedule II). In that case, I'd emphasize to your doctor how little of time a dose lasts for you vs. if your pain is around the clock, if you are having a lot of pain at the end of your dose schedule or when you wake up since you don't have any useful amount of med in your system, etc. Best wishes.

Re: new hydrocodone

ok, glad to know i wasnt just dreaming. hopefully this will be approved and on the market soon. hydrocodone works good but only for an hour or so, but i will take that hour or so, would rather find something that works longer and isnt hard on liver. now, just trying to figure out an acceptable way to discuss it with the doc. appreciate the helpful information provided.

Re: new hydrocodone

WHen me and my Dr were discussing changing meds last fall he told me there was a hydro already without Apap...although I have never heard of it before..I knew you could get oxycodone without apap as I have taken that before and it was tiny little pills but boy it worked so good and was very cheap as I do not have insurance...this is interesting to read though...it's wierd thinking of Hydrocodone moving to C-2 status...is all hydro moving to schedule 2 or just this new kind?

Re: new hydrocodone

I believe there are talks of trying to move all hydrocodone products to CII, but under current law, only pills which are pure hydrocodone (like the planned LA hydrocodone), or a combined med (like tylenol) with hydrocodone which is above 15mg/pill, would be CII.
