I will never understand why

I will never understand why they want to fix something thats not broken. It works, leave it alone. Nothing will ever be ''abuse proof'' no matter how they mess it up. It just makes relief harder to get for those who need it, those who just want it will always find a way. I am glad I just take lortab, although eventually Im sure they will find a way to %?#$$ that up too.  Yell

Bits and Pieces

According to an article in Bloomberg, the FDA rejected the "Acurox" formulation that included niacin back in 2009. Oxecta will be Acura's first product. Remoxy is still in the works. The FDA should rule on the new drug app for Remoxy by June 23.
Oxecta should come to market late third quarter or fourth quarter of this year, so we shall see.
I agree nhm, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. There's just too much money to be made- they can't resist!

Change in CII medicines

This change in CII medicines is being forced by the FDA/DEA. It actually costs the companies money to have to come up with new formulations, research, trials, development, marketing, etc. If they didn't have to change, I doubt that they would. But, if they don't, they run the risk of having their medicines pulled from the market.

I just don't understand

how we can be expected to add these chemicals{niacin} to our bodies and to be okay with that. Its tried and true that everybody reacts differently to medications. This adding of compounds to meds seems so barbaric to me. If you need to take pain meds, you have to take this also. So "out there". I gotta say, I was glad to see it's only the 5 and 7.5 mg for now. I take the 30 mg and I just don't know that I'll continue to take it when this Niacin is added to it. Of course, there's no way my insurance would cover it anyway, as I already pay cash for my meds and I'm sure the cost will be off the charts so I wouldn't be able to afford it anyway.

I guess I'm still kind of struggling with the belief that some of the best scientific minds of our times believe that this will make a difference in abuse of meds.

Someone wrote on here recently about the addicts showing up in ER's with red faces from the Niacin. I can sure see it now. No addict I've ever known would let a little red face or sweating stop them from using their dope, but us CPP's have to put this stuff into our bodies to take our meds?

No niacin

Oxecta does not contain niacin.

During development of Acurox, the original name of Oxecta, it was tried with niacin added. That formulation did not get FDA approval. It is still considered in the trial stages.

To reduce injection and nasal use it has a compound in it that causes the medicine to gel. This is somewhat like the technology in OxyContin and Remoxy. It also has Niacin in it, which causes facial flushing and itching at high doses.

If you google "Adversion Technology", you will get to the Acura R&D site. Under "Products", you will note that there is Acurox and Acurox with Niacin

So the new Oxecta is the same as the basic Acurox. It has a technology similar to the OxyContin OP and Remoxy.

Is the jury still out on this or what because this is confusing.

After further review, it does not contain niacin. Oxceta has been approved, the med that is still considered in trial stages is Acurox(which contains niacin). I think Oxecta had the same binders and gelling technology that the new OxyContin OP contains so that it is harder to crush/chew, and cannot be insufflated or injected.

Thank you.I am dyslexic

Thank you.

I am dyslexic (visual perception impairment-I have a hard time w/crosswords and such), and looking at all of that was confusing to me.

Oxecta does not contain niacin

Sorry to confuse anyone. Under my #10 post, you will notice, that if you look up Adversion Technology, which is one of Arura'a R&D site, under Procducts it has Acurox and Acurox with Niacin, two separare medicines (don't ask me why they named it the same). The Acurox with Niacin did not get approved.

The Acurox name was changed to Oxecta when it was marketed. It does not have niacin in it. You can look at the package insert that medic008 posted. It is confusing as the press releases talk about both of the Acurox's as if there were only one. You really have to get down into the Acura'a website to sort it out.

So, in summary, OXECTA is a new Class II oxycodone IR formulation. Does NOT contain naicin. Uses a gelling formulation as an abuse deterrant.
