This is the best possible news for BDSI. Much harder to change existing patients on Suboxone, due to factors associated with addicts and patient (i.e., resistant to change) and diversion users. I would estimate the amount of suboxone diversion is at least 50% of the total prescriptions, maybe higher. Suboxone has an established street value and is resulting in an epidemic in TN and other states.
Getting these new patients on Bunavail will be choice of reputable doctors, as much harder ot divert and less if any street value.
