FDA wants opioid painkiller pulled off market

medication be pulled due to "the public health consequences
of abuse."
"We are facing an opioid epidemic -- a public health crisis --

opioid misuse and abuse," FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott
Gottlieb said. "We will continue to take regulatory steps when

benefits, not only for its intended patient population but also in regard to its potential for misuse and abuse."
