Pernix Therapeutics


About the only thing that has not changed at Pernix Therapeutics versus a year ago is its name. “Under the new leadership, we radically changed the company and brought in a very experienced management team to take it to the next level,” COO Terry Novak says. “Silenor was the hidden gem in sleep medicine and was just the beginning in building a central nervous system company.”  

Pernix Therapeutics’ portfolio of specialty, primary care and generic medicines drives its overarching strategy to maximize value for its key stakeholders. The Morristown, N.J.-based company employs a lean operating model with focused and disciplined execution that allows it to pursue growth opportunities both organically and through selective acquisitions. Pernix Therapeutics’ mission is to identify, develop and commercialize specialty products that exceed the expectations of patients, customers and shareholders.
