Americans are drug addicts, face it, a large part of America has now caused the FDA to take a never-before-seen move to fight the crisis that has killed a heartbreaking number of people. On Friday, the Food and Drug Administration reportedly sent a letter to Endo Pharma, the company responsible for a more-relaxed version of Opana ER.
The feds want Endo to limit the number of sales (if not, preferably, entirely stop selling the drug) due to the fact that Opana ER has significantly contributed to the drug crisis on America. Endo, er, argues that their drug is “safe and impossible to abuse”.
The drug was accused of being a large benefactor to the rise in HIV and Hepatitis C infections in 2015. That same year, scarily, the drug killed an estimated 40,000 Americans. The drug maker declined to comment on this story when contacted by The Daily News.
