Protega Pharma is a privately held specialty pharmaceutical company dedicated to the advancement of prescription drug abuse deterrence through continued innovation and development. Recognizing the unmet public health need to combat the escalating crisis of prescription opioid abuse and misuse, Protega has responded with a line of immediate-release abuse-deterrent opioid products.
