    FDA Approves Opioid Drug 10X Stronger than Fentanyl Funded by DoD

    In the Midst of Crisis, FDA Approves Opioid Drug 10X Stronger than Fentanyl Funded by DoD


    The FDA has approved the rollout of a new opioid drug up to 1000 times stronger than morphine, despite the opioid crisis that is currently killing more Americans than any other cause of accidental death.



    The agency sided with its Anesthetic and Analgesic Advisory Panel, which voted 10-3 to approve Dsuvia, a sublingual tablet form of sufentanil, against the recommendation of its chairman. At 5-10 times the strength of fentanyl, sufentanil is 500-1000 times stronger than morphine, and will supposedly only be administered to treat acute pain in medically-supervised settings.


    Fentanyl, too, is available only by prescription, yet a significant quantity is manufactured in illegal labs or diverted to the street, where it regularly kills opioid addicts who aren’t even aware they are taking it.



    Dsuvia is fulfilling an “unmet need,” says Dr Pamela Palmer, chief medical officer of AcelRx, which makes the drug. Because the drug dissolves under patients’ tongues, it provides quick relief without the use of an injection. Still, because it must be delivered in a medical setting and doctors and nurses are trained to give injections, there are relatively few situations in which it offers an advantage that outweighs the risk of unleashing a powerful new narcotic onto an already drug-saturated populace.


    The Department of Defense had a hand in funding the research that produced Dsuvia, which could replace morphine on the battlefield due to its ease of administration. AcelRx projects $1.1 billion in annual sales and hopes to have its product on hospital shelves by early 2019.

    And yet, they want to ban kratom, an herb which is used to get people off of opioids. Sometimes this world is just too ridiculous a place, ain't it?

    Look out, though. From the way the leftards are acting, I think they're putting something in the drugs nowadays.

    I haven't had much to drink lately, I am kind of tired of it. I don't even have any beer in my house right now and I used to always keep a couple cases on hand so that when I am in the mood it is there.

    The last couple of times I did some serious beer drinking it just did not do much for me. I guess the thrill is gone

    If it is for the battlefields, the it makes sense. A soldier could need something immediate and very strong after being hit by an IED.

    But for regular hospital use, I doubt there as much as a need.
