Post by: Private on 30 December 2011 at 11:00
NEW YORK— Drug companies are working to develop a pure, more powerful version of the nation’ssecond most-abusedmedicine, which has addiction expertsworried thatitcould spura new wave of abuse.

The new pillscontain thehighly addictive painkillerhydrocodone, packing upto 10 timesthe amountof the drug asexisting medicationssuch asVicodin. Four companies have begun patienttesting, and oneof them – Zogenix of San Diego –plansto apply early next year to begin marketing its product, Zohydro.

If

approved, it wouldmark the first time patients couldlegally buy pure hydrocodone. Existing products combine the drug with nonaddictive painkillers suchasacetaminophen.

Criticssay they are especially worried about Zohydro, a timed-release drug meant for managing

OxyContin, introduced in 1995 by Purdue Pharma of Stamford, Conn., was designed to manage pain with a formula thatdribbledone doseof oxycodone over many hours.

Abusers quickly discoveredthey could defeatthe timed-release featureby crushing the pills. Purdue Pharma changed the formula to make OxyContin more tamper-resistant, but addictshave moved onto generic oxycodone and other drugs thatdo nothave a timed-release feature.

Oxycodone isnow themost-abused medicine in the UnitedStates, with hydrocodone second, more from HP

Might I add that it is the white race which prescription pain meds are mostly abused
 For one reason or another. I.am well.versed in this. Number Florida is the pill mill capital of the world. Two I lost my family because at the time my wife 24. Went to a pain clinic. She worked hard and was hurting. However they sent her home with enough medicine to kill herself and forget work. Too boot Florida paid for it all mother on medical insurance cause of our daughter. It was a very slow decline then she was gone.

That is why the media here (in Australia) sometimes refer to prescription medication as legal drugs and anything else as illegal drugs. Legal or illegal and no matter how obtained, a drug is a drug is a drug.

You are right Br.Ralph I also lived in Fl. for about 10 years and they are "pill mills" on every corner sometimes 2 or three. I did  know about 5 people that OD on pills in three years. Them people that OD did not even need them pills. Sometimes I think this how they are thinning the white race out. This is a BIG problem for us; a BIG problem !!

What blows me away is oxycontin and oxycodone are the number one abused drugs in the USA. Now a new competitive drug hits the market
