8/8/2012, Kolodny Responds to UPDATES on PROP Petition


Dr. Kolodny promptly responded… Please also let your readers know that the petitioners are not making a statement that long-term use of opioids for chronic pain or high dose opioids is always inappropriate. Several of the signers (myself included) prescribe long-term opioids. Our petition should NOT be interpreted as a manifesto on the appropriateness of long-term opioid prescribing for chronic pain. Instead, it should be understood as a request to FDA to better regulate the claims that opioid manufacturers can make about their products.
