FDA Restricts Long-Term Opioid Use To Combat Abuse

This is the future, narcotics for severe pain only, setting maximum daily dosages for opiods, and maximum lengths of therapy. 

These drugs will eventually not be used for “as-needed” pain relief.  The FDA wants to see “designate specific criteria or a list of chronic pain issues for which opioids can be prescribed.”

Please review, its the future and insurance third party payors will follow.
