Indivior To Pay $300M To Settle Suboxone Opioid Marketing Claims By DOJ, States

The makers of the opioid addiction treatment Suboxone have agreed to pay $300 million to settle allegations raised by several states, claiming Indivior falsely advertised the drug as safer and less prone to abuse than it actually is.

Last year, Indivior reached a $600 million settlement with the federal government over charges of aggressive and deceptive marketing. On Tuesday, the manufacturer agreed to pay another $300 million in a state settlement (PDF), which will be split among all 50 states and the District of Columbia, according to a press release by California Attorney General Rob Bonta.

The states’ attorneys general alleged that Indivior improperly used Medicaid funds, due to its advertising techniques, which deceived regulators and the medical community about Suboxone’s safety.

Suboxone (buprenorphine and naloxone) is a drug approved to treat recovering opioid addicts; helping them avoid withdrawal symptoms while they undergo therapy to help them break their addiction. However, the federal government and the states say Indivior, formerly known as Reckitt Benckiser Group, PLC, promoted the sale of Suboxone to doctors they knew lacked legitimate medical use for the drug, and prescribed it to patients without other accompanying treatment, like counseling.

One of the active ingredients, buprenorphine, is a powerful opioid in its own right, making Suboxone a vector of abuse by opioid addicts.

The allegations also indicate Indivior falsely claimed the Suboxone Sublingual Film, the typical way the drug is distributed, was more resistant to abuse and less likely to be accidentally exposed to children than the drug in its pill form. The film is placed under the tongue to dissolve, which critics say is just as easy, if not easier, to abuse and be accidentally ingested by children.

The states and federal government also claim the manufacturer submitted a fraudulent petition to the FDA in September 2012, which claimed the Suboxone Tablet had to be discontinued due to safety concerns. However, they say that, in actuality, the manufacturer sought to control supply and improperly inflate Suboxone pricing, including what state Medicaid programs paid for it.

“Doctors and the public should be able to trust that what a company says their product can do is the truth, especially when the company claims it can be used during the treatment of something as serious as opioid addiction,” Attorney General Bonta said in the press release. “Today’s settlement should send a message that false marketing and improper use of California’s Medicaid dollars will have costly consequences.”

In 2019, Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals reached a $700 million settlement with the federal government and states over Suboxone Medicaid fraud allegations. Indivior spun off from the company shortly afterwards and reached the $600 million agreement with the Justice Department last year.

In a statement released in response to Attorney General Bonta’s press release, Indivior notes that the $300 million is coming from that $600 million agreement it made with the Justice Department last year, and does not constitute a commitment to pay additional money to resolve that settlement.

“The various state settlement agreements being announced this week are administrative in nature, and simply formalize the individual state settlements which were previously agreed to in principle as part of the July 2020 criminal and civil resolution between Indivior and the states (and the federal government). As such, there is no new financial or legal obligation that has arisen,” the company’s statement reads. “The Company was pleased to put those issues behind it in 2020 and remains focused on realizing its patient-focused Vision and fulfilling its compliance commitments.”

The company said it will have no further comments on the settlement agreement.

    how do we get our part of the settlement? they were extremely misleading about the long term effects as well as the fact it causes severe addiction to the medication causing withdraws if without. which is crazy to me considering it was prescribed to help combat addiction to opiates.

I became addicted, and suffered withdrawal symptoms which interfered with my working and general life situations. After several years of self medicating with street drugs and alcohol, my Mom paid for me to go to a Rehab Doctor. I was put on Suboxone, told that after regulating the dose over the first few weeks, I would stay on the Suboxone for a year, and then would be weaned down for a few weeks. I was told that I would then be free of addiction. It was not suggested or recommended that I get counseling while I was in Rehab. Unfortunately, I was fed a bunch of CRAP. I have been trying to get off Suboxone for about 5 years now, and no matter what I try, it can't be done. When I take the Suboxone, I don't experience the withdrawal symptoms, and I only take a small dose now. But over the past few years, my teeth have rotted out and I'm having to get dentures. My general health has gone downhill, and I haven't been able to keep a long-term job. My life has been ruined by Suboxone. Let me be perfectly clear about this: THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS ALLOWED AND PROMOTED this "FIX" for the addiction problem by PUSHING ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THE ABSOLUTELY MOST ADDICTIVE DRUG IN HISTORY, without any way of a cure for this new addiction to Suboxone. In other words, once on it, you're on it for life. The financial cost, and the physical problems that come with it, ARE NOT WORTH IT. AVOID AT ALL COST!!! Compensation should be paid to anyone harmed by this drug. I also had no notice of the previous lawsuit, but there should be another one open to anyone who is prescribed Suboxone.

My 3rd soboxone doctor around the 7 year, same facility referred me to get an echocardiogram the results on that was enlarged heart, leaky valve, high blood pressure in my lungs along with fluid. And still soboxone doctor states its not the soboxone. I know my body. I suffer so much with soboxone and im addicted to it. I have to wear compression stalkings thigh high. I take diuretics to alleviate the adema. Ive lost leg muscle around my calves down when my body is out of soboxone my lower extremities are skelitical looking, I look sick. Now around the 10th year with same symptoms im starting to faint alot. Ive had alot of bruises, fat lips, burns, i almost broke my ankles a few times from suddenly loosing oxygen to my brain. Im currently doing testing with wich ever doctor will stay. i have had quite a few doctors that get burnt out on prescribing it i guess. Im doing a sleep study any day now. I know im allergic to soboxone, nalexone, film buprenorphine is what they have me on recently, and I still have same symptoms. My husband is very worried for me. No doctor has ever did a plan, or suggestion to taper me off. Im also addicted to soboxone or buprenorphine...I've been on 8mg ×2.5 films for last 11 years. I hope an attorney reviews my case, Im afraid. Im slowly dieing.

If not for that I would not have heard about it But when they were sending out checks I never got mine, so I called and spoke to several people who were put in charge of answer any questions about a claim or payment. When I gave them my information they said the address I gave them didn't match the one on file but my name and my EMAIL address was the same. So I was livid because they would not help me out. I wasn't eligible because I couldn't come up with the correct address. I know I filed the claim correctly with the correct address. Just seems very sketchy that my address was different but my email was the same. So now I am waiting and hoping I get a payment because I said I would wait until the initial payments were sent out and if there is anything left I will get a check. Still waiting so not sure how long I have to wait or even if I'm getting a check. I've been on Suboxone since 2005. I've paid out of pocket several times plus with insurance. I've been to 4 detox facilities using methadone to ween me of the Suboxone but I'm sent home after a week and once the methadone wore off I was still in withdrawal so bad I couldn't stand it and Everytime I got right back on Suboxone. Wish someone could listen to us and help us get off Suboxone. It's worse than heroine. I used a lot of dope and I could always get off it with minimal withdrawal but the Suboxone withdrawal is just in my bones, my emotions, my attitude, my energy, it just drains me and it lasts Soo long I can't kick it. I have to work, and there is no way I could ever work without it. Just please hear us and get us something to get us off Suboxone please

So here we was left without any of it and began to use street drugs to fill in the loss of the medication we didn't get anymore. We was non-functional in society and family life due to this.and getting on street drugs made it much worse. We have both overdosed and died and been revived. I have died more times than anyone I know. So started Suboxone and at first it seemed like the answer. But it was just another replacement for the pills the doctor's gave and the street drugs that came afterwards. My 23 yr old daughter has now Bagan getting Suboxone. This Al me has caused serious family problems. I started opening up to my therapist/councilor who worked with the doctor giving us the Suboxone. And then of her how my disabled husband was having to eat more than usual due to his body being broken down weak due to Suboxone use and my memory and health has gotten the same. We now find ourselves not able to function without taking them. He can not work without them I can not get up without them. But I have been off them over 5 years ago and for several months and I felt better than ever in my whole life off them. People came in and forced me back on them. Said it was crazy to just stop them. But now almost 6 yes later I feel worse than ever before. And have been contacting everyone everywhere to get help to get off them. But No one cared and just wanted to keep us on them. I've tried so hard but no luck. I just want a normal life without them like before. I've been in hospitals but the just added more. I've been kept from contacting attorneys.over 2 yrs ago I contacted several but they worked for the hospital giving them/law enforcement. And I would call for help but they just told me to file complaints at the prosecutors office and I did. But since I've been tormented on a serious level and my whole life controlled they took over my cell phone and every decision I've made. Just because I asked for help. Before this I was vibrant and full of life, but since this all began I can't go inside a store or do anything good or fun and they have made me family treat me so terrible. I'm all alone in this world looking for justice. And have had no luck due to a bunch of con artists during the coronavirus. They have scandled do much of my life and time. And my family. I'm 46 and not getting any younger. It's time people who deserve it to take some responsibility and pay for the problems they have caused.

They get their drug out there and judging by the fact they dont struggle with that its safe to say they didnt want qualifying customers to be aware of this. So wrong!

    I have used Suboxone for several years it does do what it says except when you don’t take it you’re back in withdrawals and the thing is I had to pay out of the pocket for like six years it cost me something like 250 a week so that’s just how I feel about

    I've been on suboxone for over a decade and before insurance I've been made to pay thousands for the prescriptions.
