In response to the current opioid epidemic, the FDA has been encouraging drug companies to create abuse-deterrent pain medications. These medications have properties that make it harder, or less rewarding, for a person to inject or snort them, and are typically resistant to crush or extraction. Some abuse-deterrent pain medications that you may have heard of include Xtampza ER (oxycodone) and Hysingla ER (hydrocodone), and now we have another to add to the list! The FDA recently approved Arymo ER (morphine), an extended-release tablet for the treatment of pain, and it is now available in pharmacies. See More
