Avadel Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:AVDL) has announced its financial results for Q3 2018.

As quoted in the press release:

Mike Anderson, Avadel’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “We executed a number of important initiatives during the third quarter related to our REST-ON Phase 3 FT 218 clinical study in narcolepsy and our recently launched product, NOCTIVA™. For REST-ON, we completed 10 new clinical site initiations, hosted two successful patient events with well over 100 attendees, and recently launched a patient referral program in tandem with a new ad campaign, all of which have opened us up to new pools of potential patients.”

“While prescription uptake for NOCTIVA is a bit slower than we anticipated, a number of important metrics have continued to improve over the last 3 months. We have substantially grown our prescriber base and have seen triple the number of prescriptions since the start of August, resulting in almost 8,000 dispensed prescriptions to date from over 1,800 unique prescribers. Our unaided brand awareness increased to approximately 80 percent, up from just under 60 percent in August, and recent intent-to-treat data indicates that 85 percent of targeted physicians expect to increase use of NOCTIVA in the next 6 months. Although the level of financial assistance to ensure patient access continues to impact revenue, we improved coverage through commercial insurance plans during the quarter and now have almost 140 million lives with access to NOCTIVA. In addition, we secured our first Part D contract with a top 5 provider and believe as we further expand access and drive demand we will improve our top line results.”
