This company is making great strides in combatting our drug abuse issues in America. You have a drug in the research stages which will address pain in legit patients and at the same time discourage the abuse and diversion problems associated with traditional pain meds that have been on the market. Killing two birds with one stone, so to speak. The more drug abuse gets out of hand, the more you will see drug companies spending millions on researching how to stop it and introducing these new abuse proof meds to the market. I think this is the way to go because all the legislature and prescription drug monitoring programs in the world will not fix the problem we have today. Where there is a will, there is a way. I think this will be the answer to the issues surrounding pain meds now, the more public the problem becomes, the more society demands a solution to it.

There is also another one called "Remoxy" which is also another new form of Oxy being worked on to be approved.

Yes, I have heard of it. Read about it a few months back.

Remoxy...

Oxycodone manufactured in a high viscosity, liquid formulation then surrounded by a hard gelatin capsule will hardly deter those who want to abuse the drug.

I hate to be a pessimist, but where there is a will, there is a way.

I agree, but Pain Theraputics will still make a killing from Remoxy whenever it gets to market. From their website:

"Remoxy is intended to meet the needs of physicians who appropriately prescribe opioid painkillers and who seek to minimize risks of drug diversion, abuse or accidental patient misuse. Remoxy resists injection or snorting. Published data also show that freezing, crushing or submerging Remoxy in high-proof alcohol for hours at a time releases just a fraction of oxycodone at time points when abusers presumably expect to get high."

As you can see, they are already using the same kind of marketing technique originally used by Purdue for Oxycontin...although building in a coutermeasure for submersion in alcohol is, admittedy, a nice touch.
