Potent New Painkiller May Prove Lethal for Addicts, Critics Warn
By Linda Carroll
THIS MAY PROVE BENEFICIAL TO SOMEONE LIKE ME. CHRONIC, DEBILITATING HEADACHES AND THE DOCTOR THINKS A DISK IN MY BACK IS PRESSING ON A NERVE THAT GIVES ME PAIN THAT NO PAIN MED CAN TOUCH. I CANT TAKE NSAIDS BECAUSE I HAVE NO STOMACH LINING LEFT.

The new painkiller Zohydro was approved just a few months ago and isn't even on pharmacy shelves yet, but the potent pill has already sparked a firestorm of protest from doctors and activists who fear that it will lead to abuse, addiction and deaths.

The Food and Drug Administration, which approved the drug against the recommendations of its advisory panel, says that a stronger pain pill is needed for patients who haven't been able to get relief from existing medications. Zohydro is expected to hit shelves March 1. http://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-new...arn-n40551

One thing I'm wondering. Why didnt they just take the acetominephin out of what they use now?

The acetaminophen boosts the hydrocodone in what they have now. The only difference between the old stuff and Zohydro is because it is a slow release the ingrediants are bumped up.

If I remember without looking my dose is 10/500 and this new stuff is way higher. I think the problem is when they crush and shoot it.

For Christ's sake can we chill out with the bans? Is that our answer to everything?

Lemme get this straight. This would be dangerous to those that are going to misuse it, by grinding it up, then shooting/snorting it. So what's the problem again?

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

Exactly Streaker. Idiots will abuse anything they can. Why deny people who actually use it the way its prescribed?

Because of some serious injuries I have taken opiates regularly on and off. What has amazed me is the amount of regular people, businessmen, grandmothers, etc that have become addicted to prescription meds unwittingly. The figures and percentages of people prescribed opiates that become addicted is staggering.
I'm one of the fortunate ones that for some reason can stop.

Sometimes the ignorance about real life issues astounds me. If you think you are immune to this growing epidemic you are a fool.

I have also been on and off opiates for years but I dont take more than prescribed and they sure dont make me feel "high" although Ive never been high I dont feel the need to get nuts with it. Some people may benefit from this new stuff. I know I would rather take something that has a slow release so Im not going up and down on pain scale so much. I personally have NEVER taken a medication that made me feel so good that I wanted more and more. JMO YMMV
