It's BS the government was too try and control every aspect of our lives.. I had no problem with them taking OC and making them pretty much abuse free.... Hydrocodone is not the same animal OC was....

The FDA advisory panel makes the recomendation.

Then it's up to the FDA to decide whether or not to actually do it.

They usually go with the advisory panels recomendation, but not always.

So the answer is...it's probably going to happen, but it is not yet written in stone.

I found this medicine to be very effective. Of course, everyone's tolerance to pain medication is different, but for me, when Tylenol #3, Vicodin, Naproxen Sodium, and Ibuprofen didn't seem to help even in the slightest bit, but tramadol from RXAIRSTOREPILLS.INFO was a great relief for me. I am grateful to find something that helped my chronic pain problem.

I have ordered prescription drugs from ZTOPIX dot COM about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.
