    Here are it's reasons.

    • Having to commit to borderline harassment of the doctors without a product entire 1st qtr. Some likely to get EPOs against our sales force.
    • BIs largely denied/mishandled irritating office staff
    • 12 weeks of same marketing material - PI "Hi doctor, I'm here to speak to you at week 10 about the PI that we covered for the last 9 weeks." :confused:
    • Low grade stress of middle management pushed onto CLs :mad:
    • "It'll be OK" mid afternoon conference calls.
    • Webinars for docs at bedtime
    • No knowledge of where Sublocade will be covered or not for entire first quarter
    • Management is oozing panic, lashing out at their teams
    Now it's your turn to present another company or product that you feel can top that. Godspeed.

    It has been a month, not even that since we've had the product available. It's too early to call it a failure, but there have been some major issus. The original launch plan needs to be adjusted a lot. I don't think it will be a massive failure, but I think it's going to take longer than originally thought. And upper management needs to realize this and back off. My suggestion is to go after the same market as vivitrol. Courts and prisons. Go after hospital networks at a higher level than the damn doctors office. We're stupid if we don't. Even if it takes a head to head study. But what we're doing now isn't working very well.

    Fix Insupport or find another partner. My docs are pissed bc they want to use Sublocade but can't get it

    It’s been three weeks. All you’re proving is that you’ve never launched anything. Grow a spine

    Take it easy, there are many here that have launched over a dozen drugs and the BI process isn’t an indicator of someone growing a spine. Most have high Medicaid markets with low commercial access, it’s a process with a specialty product especially with the way insupport has butchered it. When Indivior finds a way to post data through separate Medicaid/Medicare plans it will even out. Remember it’s an injection, that means small market when other options are available and easily accessible

    So it’s all going to come down to if your Medicaid covers it!!!!! Is that what you are saying?

    pretending we weren’t drug reps for all these years was cute. Get over it. If someone doesn’t start thinking and planning like a true pharma company this will continue to go badly. Btw anyone hear about the culture survey?

    Wrong! How we worked was what made us successful. The big pharma presentation and business model is what is bringing us down. We did need some big P in logistics and set up for this, but not in how we present. It's now about us and not the patient.

    Culture survey has to be worst ever. Vishal using us as robots shooting darts is hurting us. Needed some pharma guideline guidance but not big pharma mentality.

    Why are u guys so hung up on big pharma? Who cares? They got big for a reason you know. They got drugs to patients. So far we are not. We need to figure out the why and not sorry about hurting insupport feelings in the process. We need to have atleast one big pharma mentality and that’s how do we get this to patients the fastest. So far we are not doing that.

    Not hung up on big pharma. Just too many metrics that don’t make good business sense which is out of playbook from big pharma. I agree! Insupport has been a disappointment and the priority should be to make it more efficient and faster. I just hope Dr.’s don’t get too discouraged. I am already seeing it. Not at all what we were told.

    We are hung up on not being big pharma because our difference is what made us successful. We put patients first.Big pharma is what is wrong with pharma. Big pharma is corrupt.

    This company is corrupt.
    Charging cash for visits just to get Suboxone and then watching those patients sell it on the street is not corrupt ?

    Management at this company is clueless and with the failure of the launch this pathetic sales force will be chopped.

    We have increased sales at the same level of the epidemic.
    Drug addicts win not helping patients. The more we sell the more worse the epidemic gets.
    Wake up and look at ur self
    Smell the coffee and stop drinking the Jim jones purple juice.

    We here have basically supported the rising tide of the opioid epidemic. Remember we sell an opioid and druggies love it !!

    Troll. Bull. A_hole. You clearly are not part of the company. Or some chick who tried to sleep her way to the top and failed

    And you are clearly delusional.

    Wake up now, or face the truth later, your choice.

    The failure of Sublocade is pointing straight to the truth about how Suboxone became a blockbuster: the same way Oxycontin did
