Let’s take a closer look at MNMD stock to understand the bearish sentiment.

      What’s Happening?

      Recently the company announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has placed a clinical hold on its IND submission concerning the starting of Phase 2b trial of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). The LSD is intended for patients who are suffering from generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). The company will provide additional details related to the decision of the FDA within 30 days. The investors did not like the news that led to the decline in the per-share price of the MNMD stock. On the other hand, the management of the company is confident in LSD and hopes that it will satisfy all the outstanding concerns of the FDA related to LSD as soon as possible.
