This is on the F.D.A. News Events page if the link is wrong. I don't post much here but I read the post's alot I believe it does say the f.d.a. is committed to make pain medicine to those who need it. They want for pharmaceutical company's to make abuse- deterrent medicine's they are suppose to have a time to consider patient's view. I hope I got this right. I will see what that is about the D.E.A.
I think it was the 37 Doctors who petitioned the FDA, and the Affordable Care Act. (heath care) witch I belive in part is to get the ones who really need pain meds. and weed out the ones who abuse them. because people are dying. plus the money it will save. my Doc. gave me a blood test (i think to check my levels and for no other stuff in my system) and the next time urine test everybody needs to be on the straight & straight DanView Thread
