    Horizant future sales--Why XNPT will succeed vs why GSK failed

    GSK's drug Requip for RLS has sales over $300 million annually now- thus GSK would be killing its own drug by pushing Horizant-GSK's generous legal settlement with Xnpt indicates this is the case also---Now the RLS or Willis Ekbom Disease Foundation discourages the use of dopaminergic drugs (Requip is one) for RLS due to studies that show increased heart failure and augmentation (RLS increases) Now Horizant is the only FDA approved drug for RLS that is not a dopaminergic drug and the only extended release gabapentin drug that is effective for RLS through the whole sleep cycle---

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
