SAN DIEGO, Feb. 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zogenix, Inc. (Nasdaq:ZGNX), a pharmaceutical company developing and commercializing products for the treatment of pain-related conditions and central nervous system disorders, today announced it has made significant progress in preparing for the market launch of Zohydro TM ER (hydrocodone bitartrate) extended-release capsules, approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in October 2013. Zohydro ER, the first and only extended release hydrocodone without acetaminophen, is indicated for management of pain severe enough to require daily, around-the-clock, long-term opioid treatment and for which alternative treatment options are inadequate. For patients managing chronic pain with an immediate release hydrocodone combination product, an extended release formulation without the risks associated with acetaminophen may be beneficial. Zohydro ER may also be an alternative for people living with chronic pain who have developed opioid tolerance or are experiencing side effects with other long-acting opioids.
