I see that MonSol RX makes the suboxone strips for RB.

more info: Orange Book: Approved Drug Products with Therapeutic Equivalence Evaluations

In an article by MS RX, they discuss about how RB can keep the cost up on suboxone by making a new form of the drug, not changing the formulation, only the form. They discuss competition and the losses which would have been incurred by RB if this new form (sl strips) had not been approved by the FDA.

MonoSol reportedly "achieves a 25% share in 2010" of suboxone, well? It just goes to RB's bank account IMO.

I know the FDA charges a million bucks for an application for a new drug.

It is an unusual coincidence, that suboxone, the tablet form being orange, that it would be in the FDA'a Orange Book.

Maybe RB will find a company to change suboxone to a "buccal" form and obtain FDA approval just before the sl strips patent expires, to not only keep dipping into our pockets ($$$$), but then they would hit us literally in the ass with it then!

Why does RB seem to have so much influence with the FDA and doctors in reference their tactics of publicizing that the strip form of suboxone is much safer than the tablet form? This seem to be one of the main reasons doctors are prx this form from what I read. I know other reason like the strips are reportedly more easily absorbed (sp?), and taste better, tang vs lime.

Could RB indirectly be causing more people to die from OD by opiates by coming out with new "forms" of suboxone, therefore making them unaffordable to many people who would use suboxone to save their lives, but are unable to afford it?
