The FDA is changing how much pain medication can be made in each month. They have banned certain pain medications & patients are now taking other pain medications. This is causing a shortage of certain pain medications. Leaving many people to go from one Pharmacy to the next trying to find their medication wasting gas, time, & causing fear that if we can't find the medication that we will have to go to Emerengcy Hospitals or, worse having to go to a Mental Facility. Not all people are abusing pain medications & we now have to take drug tests to make sure that we are taking the medication. Please help us by signing the petition so, the people who really need pain medication are able to function in our society & not cause us millions of dollars in debt; due to unnessary medical bills! I'm living in fear each day that I may lose my home, car, & everything I own just because of unnessary medical bills & hospital stays!

      I too suffer from chronic pain and I am legally disabled because of it. Hydrocodone and oxycodone are the only medicines that have somewhat helped, but you can't get Hydrocodone without Tylenol or some other NSAID(aspirin, Ibuprofen) in it, but you can get straight oxycodone. I am allergic to NSAIDs and even the smallest does of tylenol throws my liver out of wack. The only thing I can take is oxycodone and because of the drug abuse problem people in situations like me are getting denied meds they NEED in order to maintain what little quality of life is available. This should not be. The war on drugs should target criminals, not disabled suffering people. Please forward this petition to as many friends as you can, thank you!

      I am someone who has been on pain medicine for chronic conditions and i have friends and family also with these problems. I do know that because of a few bad pennies people who need their meds have to pay.
