I think we should pass this one around - it takes quite a lot for the FDA to order the removal of a drug or device from the market.

I just copied and pasted this  to someone's thread who mentioned the drug not reaching the pain they were in. so another reason to look for a new prescription.

Interesting...it is an older used pain med. Not one I ever found particularly effective, but interesting that a drug on the market for 50 years is pulled.
