FDA Approves New Device for Opioid Withdrawal

Washington, D.C.

Last week the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a device for the treatment of opioid withdrawal symptoms. According to the manufacturer, in addition to opiate cravings, the new device addresses symptoms that can include agitation, anxiety and depression.

The manufacturer, DyAnsys, Inc. identifies the device as an “auricular neurostimulator” which flows electrical pulses to the individual through ear-fitted needles. Although the wearable device can provide continuous treatment for up to 5 days, in some instances it has reduced symptoms of opioid withdrawal within 30 to 60 minutes after treatment starts.
