Title: COMPOSITIONS FOR DETERRING ABUSE OF PHARMACEUTICAL PRODUCTS AND ALCOHOL
Abstract:
The invention enables the formation of prescription drugs less likely to be abused. Different approaches are employed that can potentially deter abuse by reducing the efficacy of main processes utilized by abusers to speed drug absorption and enhance its effect. Pharmaceutical compositions of the invention incorporate one or more of the following elements: super water-absorbency, alcohol absorption, organic binding agents, inorganic binding agents, adsorption, and tough platforms. These compositions function by preventing the isolation and concentration of drug constituents for misuse and/or preventing excessive intake. Thus, the invention encompasses various compositions and methods for reducing abuse of pharmaceutical products and alcohol.
