Only healthcare providers can adminis- ter Dsuvia through a pre-filled, single-dose applicator. And doctors can't send patients home with the drug or write a prescription for it — they must administer Dsuvia in hospitals, surgical centers or other medically supervised settings. AcelRx Pharmaceuticals has plans to launch Dsuvia in the first quarter of 2019. dsuvia.com
