In July 2012, the FDA approved the Extended-Release and Long-Acting (ER/LA) Opioid Analgesic Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) to ensure that the benefits of ER and LA opioid analgesics used in the outpatient setting outweigh the risks. The REMS initiative was eventually modified to include immediate-release (IR) opioids in order to support the national efforts to address the misuse and abuse of prescription opioid analgesics.
