Obstructive sleep apnea therapy Provent, which uses expiratory positive airway pressure to keep airways open, has been discontinued, as of June 1, 2020. For patients who are currently using Provent, they can continue to use until their current supply runs out or expires. (The last batch made expires Sept 16, 2023.)
According to an announcement on Provent’s website:
We’ve seen our sales steadily rise, we’ve grown our sales outlets in the US and around the world, and we’ve enjoyed letters and comments from many happy users who have depended on Provent to treat their OSA successfully with a convenience that is still unparalleled by any other product.
Unfortunately though our costs to manufacture and market Provent have been rising steadily as well; and with the current uncertainty around the world we cannot guarantee manufacturing dates or quality moving forward.
Our current inventory of Provent has been depleted and so it is with heavy hearts that we are announcing an end to our company; and the end of the manufacturing life for the Provent Sleep Apnea Therapy product.
