Don't politicize FDA decisions on pain medications

Our elected officials should act to protect medical progress in chronic pain relief. One hundred million people in the United States deal with debilitating chronic pain and need access to approved medications every day to stay productive and attain some measure of quality of life.

We must protect medical access for those afflicted with the most severe pain
The FDA did its job correctly by approving a unique treatment option based on its safety and efficacy data.

Do not let politicians overturn the FDA’s legitimate and expert approval of a pain medicine option that can bring relief.  Do not infringe on patient access to approved pain medication options in any State. Help us send a message to Washington and state capitals across the nation to do the right thing.

Stand up and show your support for people with chronic pain.  Please sign (and share) our petition today.

The on-line petition can be found here.
