  • FDA approves new opioid

Critics are blasting the FDA for approving Dsuvia as the country faces increasing opioid overdose deaths. It's intended for short-term use only, and should not be used for more than 72 hours.

The drug is also only for use by patients who can not tolerate other painkillers, or for whom other painkillers have failed or are expected to fail.

"The agency is taking new steps to more actively confront this crisis, while also paying careful attention to the needs of patients and physicians managing pain", he said.

But those restrictions are not sufficient, claims Senator Ed Markey (D-MA), who blasted the FDA for failing to prove that the drug has enough "unique benefits over other available FDA-approved opioid products" to justify the risk of abuse.
