FDA Approved Powerful Opioid Pill as Alternative to IV Painkiller

Penelitian - U.S. regulators have approved a fast-acting, super-potent opioid tablet as an alternative to IV painkillers used in hospitals. The decision by the Food and Drug Administration on Friday came over objections from critics who fear the pill will be abused.

In a statement, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said there will be “very tight restrictions” placed on its distribution and use. The tiny pill was developed as an option for patients who pose difficulties for the use of IVs, including soldiers on the battlefield.
