Launch of Hysingla ER

Released: 11/20/2014   By: Carl Richie, Pharmacy Manager

The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the release of Hysingla ER, the first hard-to-abuse version of hydrocodone. Hysingla ER is an extended release opioid used to treat severe pain and should not be used for as-needed pain relief. The Hysingla ER tablet is labeled as having “abuse-deterrent properties”, which are expected to reduce, but not totally prevent, abuse of the drug when chewed and then taken orally, or crushed and snorted or injected.
