We give PR tylenol for tonsils now. It is easy and cheap. I think it will be hard to change to an iv infusion that takes 10 mins and needs tubing, pump, time, etc. I have my doubts about quick uptake of this drug. If it was a single IV push drug, then I would feel more inclined to think otherwise.
No. I think this is a buy because long term it will taken up by ICUs/OR/ etc. But don't expect earnings to be blow out in the next few quarters. There are some hurdles. The complixity of giving something IV by infusion or by giving something PO or PR, or not giving it at all, must be kept in mind.
If I have access to the stock drug, that is what I plan to do. I think to get the Cmax high enough you do need to run this in within 15 mins. So giving it over 1 hr or so would not get you the same effect. I will add to my total joints and see if I improved pain control.
