The US Food and Drug Administration said Thursday that drugmaker Endo Pharmaceuticals must remove its powerful opioid painkiller Opana ER from the market. The agency says this the first time it has asked that an opioid pain medication be pulled due to “the public health consequences of abuse.”
“This is pretty exciting. This is big news.”
“Opana is not the only one that needs to come off the market.”
