IN THE MIDST OF CRISIS, FDA APPROVES OPIOID DRUG 10X STRONGER THAN FENTANYL FUNDED BY DOD

The FDA has approved the rollout of a new opioid drug up to 1000 times stronger than morphine, despite the opioid crisis that is currently killing more Americans than any other cause of accidental death.

The agency sided with its Anesthetic and Analgesic Advisory Panel, which voted 10-3 to approve Dsuvia, a sublingual tablet form of sufentanil, against the recommendation of its chairman. At 5-10 times the strength of fentanyl, sufentanil is 500-1000 times stronger than morphine, and will supposedly only be administered to treat acute pain in medically-supervised settings.

Fentanyl, too, is available only by prescription, yet a significant quantity is manufactured in illegal labs or diverted to the street, where it regularly kills opioid addicts who aren’t even aware they are taking it.

Dsuvia is fulfilling an “unmet need,” says Dr Pamela Palmer, chief medical officer of AcelRx, which makes the drug. Because the drug dissolves under patients’ tongues, it provides quick relief without the use of an injection. Still, because it must be delivered in a medical setting and doctors and nurses are trained to give injections, there are relatively few situations in which it offers an advantage that outweighs the risk of unleashing a powerful new narcotic onto an already drug-saturated populace.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you ever had a doubt in your mind who - or what - actually owns the FDA, the approval of this drug, given its very limited-use capabilities, should give you at least a tiny clue; it is the drug companies themselves.

I have zero doubt that shortly after this drug's approval, it will be reverse-engineered by chemists who work for the drug criminals, and available on the streets in relatively no time, adding to the hideous statistics on US narcotic addiction and death.
