New Medication - Zohydro
Released: 03/01/2014
By: Carl Richie, Pharmacy Manager

Zohydro, a new opioid narcotic painkiller, has recently been released in the 10mg, 15mg, and 20mg strengths. Higher strengths have not yet been released.

Zohydro has a CII classification and may have serious side effects, if not used properly. Even though the medication is meant to release hydrocodone slowly over a twelve-hour period, the pill could be tampered with to release a large dose all at once. Therefore, abuse is of a concern and extreme caution is required for its use.

We recommend this medication require prior authorization for all fills.
