    Just want to make certain that I fully understand this. Big Pharma as they are referred to sells a product that is FDA approved to treat pain. Doctors who by the way sit on most hospitals boards and I am certain did sit on the boards of these hospitals treat patients by using the products in question. Same group of people the Doctors rather than treating the patient and reason for the pain treat the symptom by writing another script for more of the pain killer.

    All of the pain killers in question are opioids which are very similar to opium which has always been an addictive substance. Are we now trying to say that the medical community was so easily fooled that they for one moment did not see the risks inherent with over prescribing of these medications? Not letting the pharmaceutical companies off for a moment but certainly have a hard time with medical providers now looking to recoup losses when they were consenting parties to the entire mess.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Hi, Thank you for this article. I’ve read many articles like this.
    I have an older brother that take opioid medication for pain reliever, so what our society can do for this kind of issues? What will be the possible alternative medication for pain killer except taking an opioid?
