I'm excited about the possibility of probuphine. However back in 2013 the same committee recommended probuphine be approved by the fda and the fda didn't play ball. Since then the formulation hasn't changed, but there's been some heavy lobbying by Titan / Braeburn.

If it does get approved, I'll definitely give it a try. It would make travelling so much easier.

It is probably going to be labeled for those taking 8 mg a day or less, and stable, whatever that means to the FDA. They found that people that were taking more than 8 mg a day at the time of the implant they used supplemental oral bup.

Looks like there will be a delay in the decision until late May to take more time to consider the application and additional materials Braeburn submitted at FDA's request. Also Congress will have meetings next week on related topics about opiod addiction.

I don't know about an implant but I did qualify for one of those suboxone trials where they inject it into you like that said once a month eventually going to to six months. I'm not sure how one injection would stay in your system that long and I Wish I had more info on it but I decided against it but they are working on something
