FDA approves Purdue's oxycodone

  • The FDA approves Purdue Pharmaceuticals' Targiniq ER (oxycodone hydrochloride and naloxone hydrochloride extended-release tablets) for the treatment of severe pain requiring around-the-clock long-term opioids where alternative treatment options are inadequate.
  • Targiniq incorporates abuse deterrent technology. When a pill is crushed and/or dissolved (for snorting or injecting) the naloxone blocks the euphoric effects of oxycodone making it less desirable for abusers than oxycodone alone.
  • The agency requires a postmarket study to assess the risks of long-term use beyond 12 weeks and the effects of the abuse deterrent features.

    Junkies will crack this deterrent faster than a computer hacker will break into a hack proof computer.

    I grow weary of a continual concern for the addict and no concern for the people fighting chronic pain. Lets be honest. we have lost the war on drugs and the incarceration costs are way too high. The war on drugs is fighting symptoms and not the cause.

    GODD QUESTION ? Can't find Perdue phamacueticals !!!!
    Hey ,Check this out ,Just like Amsterdam ,All drugs should be LEGALIZED ,BUT, thru pharmesutical company's !!!! We've got marijuana as a start,next cocaine & heroin,as LEGALIZED all drugs.!!!! Regulate appropriate amounts ,dispensed by a doctors evaluation and a Prescription !!!
    One step further... all other drugs,if LEGALIZED ,especially STARTING WITH MARIJUANA need to be PHARMACEUTICALLY made !!!! Not sold individually by dispeseries ,.these guys are bootleggers ..who knows what each guy is .making @100 mg THC?? They outta be
    LEGALIZED growers for a pharmaceutical company like ZGNX..... !!!
    Furthermore ,.50% OF ALL MONEY GENERATED COULD GO TO PAY OUR TRILLION DOLLAR NATIONAL DEBT ,which would be billions each month !!! ...FREEDOM TO CHOOSE AS A UNITED STATES CITIZEN ...there's always going to be alcoholics ,drug addiction ,and crime !
    "AN ALL DRUG LEGALIZATION FREEDOM ACT "needs to be signed as a new bill of rights !!!
    Starting HERE IN AMERICA ,EVERY STATE ,COUNTY ,AND CITY !!!!
    OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS ARE BEING CONSUMED BY GOVERNMENT POLICE LAWS ......live n let live ,freedom to choose ,LEGALIZED drugs is true freedom ....ya either
    Do or you don't but billions of dollars are wasted on policing the drug war ....LEGALIZED DRUGS WILL OPEN THE FLOOD GATES OF PEACE AND HARMONY WITH ALL NATIONALITIES !!! A NEW COCAINE AND HEROIN "FREEDOM ACT " FROM SOUTH
    AMERICA TO CHINA WILL MAKE PEACEFUL RELATIONS and generate billions to trillions
    Of dollars for all THE WORLD as we are all one world indivisible under God !!!! We could feed the poor ,rebuild bridges and levies ,our entire infrastructure rebuilt ,and the national debt paid off simply with drug money !!!! MOST IMPORTANTLY , Legalising all drugs WOULD BE THE FISRT STEP TO BRINGING PEACE TO ALL THE WORLD .."PHARMACEUTICALLY MADE "
    Grow huge poppy and coca fields for money and freedom !!!! NO MORE POLICE WAR!!!
    JUST PURE FREEDOM TO EVOLVE AS LOVING HUMAN BEINGS HELPING EACH COUNTRY BE THE BEST AT WHAT EACH PART OF THE WORLD CREATES AND OTHERS
    CONSUME .....so ZGNX could become MASSIVE if they were to be the first phamaceutical company To produce marijuana from growers of dispensaries and get cocaine ,and heroin
    Growers LEGALIZED to PHARMACEUTICALLY make ingested doses ,injections,or smoking!!!

     

    FREEDOM SHALL BE ALL OVER THE WORLD , TO CHOOSE ONES DESTINY IS A SOVEREIGN RIGHT TO LIVE AND LET LIVE !!!! LOVE AND PEACE TOWARDS THE REST OF THE WHOLE WORLD. ....LEGALIZED DRUGS IS GOOD BUSINESS AND WILL STOP THE DRUG WAR !!!
    BILLIONS TO TRIOLLIONS OF $$$ CREATING PEACE AND LOVE FOR ALL THE WORLD !!!
