These account for 90 percent of the 200 million opioid painkiller prescriptions produced in the U.S. each year.
“Many people who grow addicted to opioids will ultimately move on to seek greater dose formulations of these drugs or illegal street drugs, which are increasingly the low-cost alternatives. America is awash in immediate-release opioid products,” Gottlieb spoke.
