This is really sad news. I guess they would rather have people with opiate tolerences that truly require a higher dose for pain relief destroy their livers with acetamenophen. This medication has been needed for a long time and the fact that the idiots in Washington are doing this is disgusting. Hydrocodone Polistirex in tablet form would be an oustanding analgesic. I really hope the drug gets approved.

If a larger pharmaceutical company with deeper pockets was developing this medicine...you just might see a different ruling.

Sad but true. I just saw this... But I hate to say it, Uncle Sam and Brother Knows Best knows better than you. After all we're all better off in the hands of our elected officials...

Anyone else seriously feels that a nanny state for us the dumb public, is something that was comical at first, ridiculous now, and actually getting worse as these jack asses don't know when to stop. I'm sure they are patting themselves on the back for saving all us helpless souls. Sorry for the rant... This is getting ridiculous.

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.
