The FDA approved OxyContin for use in children to manage their chronic and extreme pain.  If you are wondering what could the FDA possibly have been thinking in approving a drug for children that has been responsible for tens of thousands of deaths and addictions throughout the U.S since its release in the late 1990’s, there was no thought.  Don’t even try to imagine how the FDA could have conducted studies with their research people and physicians under the watchful eyes of the heads of  the agency because they did not.  Did their advisory committee — the last step in approving a dangerous drug determine children could “safely” take OxyContin?  After all the FDA has come under close scrutiny for their financial ties to the pharmaceutical industry and certainly did not need anymore blood on their hands — especially with the risk of children becoming addicted and dying from OxyContin.   No there was no advisory committee review.

Here’s where it becomes criminal.  The FDA asked Purdue Pharma to perform their own studies on the safety of OxyContin being given to children.  The same Purdue Pharma that was charged in federal court with misleading the medical profession about the dangers of OxyContin.  This happened in 2007 and Purdue Pharma pleaded “guilty”.  Do I understand this correctly?  The FDA made a deal with convicted felons — with our children the prize?

“The major difference is that all pediatric patients that are considered for pain management with OxyContin should already have been treated with an opioid pain medicine. This way, their health care providers know that these pediatric patients can be treated safely with OxyContin.”
