Well, the FDA did it again. Imagine Brittney Spears singing "Oops I did it again" about now. They have approved a new pain killer with no abuse resistant features. The reason for doing so...profits for the manufacturer and protecting the patent. You see, since they approved the "no abuse resistant" medication, that patent is protected from generic producers. They will make billions in profits while drug abusers kill themselves by overdosing. Then, in about five to seven years, the "abuse resistant" version will be approved thereby extending the patent on the name brand preventing generics.
All of this is in the name of profits for the pharmaceuticals. You want to know why our health care in America is screwed...drug companies desire to get every dime out of us while endangering the public.
Just wait, it won't be long before you see stories in the media about this "horrible" drug killing people. The company will release the abuse resistant version and will be hailed as saving American's from the ugly side of abuse. Keep in mind when you do see this happen that the GOVERNMENT and the same company allowed it to happen...all for profits.
