Indivior is a specialty pharmaceuticals business. It is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index.

History[edit]

The company was established as the Buprenorphine division of Reckitt Benckiser in 1994.[2] In December 2014, Reckitt Benckiser spun off its specialty pharmaceuticals business into a separate company named Indivior.[3] By February 2015 the company was capitalised at £2.3 billion on the London Stock Exchange.[4]

Operations[edit]

The company's main products are Subutex and its Naloxone-combined preparation Suboxone, both substitution products for opioid addiction.[2] Other products include remedies for cocaine and opioid analgesic overdose and treatment for alcohol dependence: the company claims this to be the largest pipeline of addiction drugs in the world.[5]
