    More Bad News for Pain Patients

    Zohydro may (I Say MAY) not be released for sale

    The FDA Panel rejected the drug 11-2 for probable abuse issues

    Peace

    (FYI this is extended release pure hydrocodone)

    Interesting. I don't see why they should compare it to hydrocodone combo products (like Vicodin) which are Schedule III, as it would be Schedule II. Of course compared to Vicodin it has a worse potential for abuse (as you could take a lot without your liver failing), but its not a comparable med. There is a big difference between a lower dose short acting med and a higher dose long acting med.

    I think this is a good idea for patients who don't need something too strong but want to avoid the added Tylenol/etc. Currently they would have to go up to Oxycodone, or else have something compounded. I don't see a reason for a patient on daily meds to be taking the added analgesic unless it is helping their pain. In some cases it can add up to a lot. For me, it didn't seem to (couldn't tell a difference between 10/325 Percocet and 10mg Oxycodone for example). Thanks for the info.

    Hello danme.

    Thanks for the heads up and tortoisegirl,thanks for the explanation.

    For some reason I envisioned those addicted to hydrocodone viewing the drug in terms of taking several,as a means of maintaining a longer level of "consciousness."
    The potential for harm far outweighs the greater good here,due in large part to pain med abuse being so rampant;now more than ever.Dare I use the word "epidemic."

    Respectfully

    Friends-

    I'm curious about the choices abusers make. It always seemed to me to be a waste of time and efforts attempting to deconstruct an OC, Opana, or Exalgo tab when there are 30mg IR tabs available, same with Oxymorphone 10's and Hydromorphone 8's.... Why would someone be interested in a relatively low potency Hydrocodone product?

    Enlighten me.. thnx

    Iso~

    Firstly,hello danme,as this is your thread and respect is due.

    Iso,hello and welcome.

    To understand the mind of an addicted person,one would have to look into the psychology of addiction.
    It's selfish;the mind wants what it wants when it wants it.The objective is to satisfy the need or craving as soon as humanly possible.
    Rationality isn't always priority one or 100 in many addicted.

    Certain medications are more likely to be abused in others.

    I'm sure the panel went through all the data,with respect to testing,as many compare their product to another similarly on the market.

    Who knows;if the company is willing to start from the drawing board or re-work the formula's components,it may just get approval........under a different name........

    Stranger things have happened.

    Respectfully
    Phoenix
