i just read an article about a new time release med related to vicodin that is coming out and needed to be voted on. here is part of the warning given by the dea voters. here we go again with the hysteria. it can be crushed and used as was once oxycontin. oxycontin now has a tamper proof coating whereas zohydro does not. these guys want it banned. so let's see, oxy is ok but zohydro is not. just put a coating on it and then people won't have to worry.
"In the midst of a severe drug addiction epidemic fueled by overprescribing of opioids, the very last thing the country needs is a new, dangerous, high-dose opioid," some 40 experts wrote to the FDA in a call for Zohydro's reevaluation. "It's a whopping dose of hydrocodone packed in an easy-to-crush capsule. It will kill people as soon as it’s released," says one of those experts. But one doctor points out that "it all depends on how doctors monitor it. It could be lifesaving. But if used the wrong way, like any medication, it can cause trouble." On that front, Forbes reports that experts say someone unaccustomed to opioids could overdose with as little as two pills, and that a single pill could kill a child.
I have 4 fusions from L5-3, the latest last May '12 where they fixed my disc that broke.They went through my side this time. I take 40 mg of oxycontin 4x a day and 4 fenatyl lollipops 300 micro gms 4x a day.
