Reckitt stops Suboxone pills in US

Reckitt Benckiser said yesterday it is to withdraw its Suboxone heroin treatment tablets in favour of a film version in the US over the next six months due to the higher risk of children getting hold of the tablets. The consumer conglomerate said it will stop supply after US data showed that tablets were up to 8.5 times more likely to be taken by children than the film version.
