Leading the dissent was Raeford Brown, the chairman of an FDA advisory committee that reviewed AcelRx Pharmaceuticals' Dsuvia last month and ultimately recommended its approval in a 10-3 vote. Experts worry that supplies of the drug will somehow make their way from doctors' offices and pharmacies to addicts.
