i was just reading an article this morning that said the makers of oxy-contin has just sent canadian pharmacies a notice that it is phasing out the drug. in its place will be oxy-NEO. the company says that NEO has properties that does not allow the drug to be broken down and injected for a heroin like high that drug abusers get out of crushing, liquifying and injecting the drug. apparently it is hard to crush this drug and if liquid is added to it, it will turn into a gel.
i personally think this is a brilliant move towards keeping us chronic pain people medicated and safe and dissuade drug abusers from abusing the drug, and for a lot of people preventing them from overdosing and dying. what do you guys think?
