"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.
