    Hi all

    Has anyone heard of Prialt? My daughter just told me she saw something about Prialt, evidentally a new med for chronic pain. All I can find about it is a bunch of long medical terms and trials. I am in too much pain to sit here long and try to figure it all out (and I'm foggy). Anyone heard of it? It is supposed to be a new med for chronic pain. Any info would be appreciated. it is called Prialt.

    I believe it is a new, highly potent pain reliever derived from a snail venom. In fact, it is so potent, the FDA refused to approve it in pill form because it can be lethal. As far as I know, it is only available in an implantable form to allow controlled release. However, it appears to work where nothing else will. I also believe the manufacturer is trying again to have a pill form approved. Looks promising!
