M&G, Hysingla is abuse deterrent but also also extended release. No, I haven't tried Zohydro. Not sure why doc didn't prescribe that. It rates higher in patient reviews on Drugs.com than Hysingla. I get a little better relief from oxycontin, but need to talk to my pain doc about
something that works better. I'm behaving, not complaining and trying it for 3 months .... and suffering.
I didn't mean to say there was a law, but CDC "Guidelines" have influence. State drug review boards are getting tougher. /www.nytimes.com/2016/03/17/health/er-pain-pills-opioids-addiction-doctors.html?_r=0
MsKwig, Extended release drugs are a good idea. They just need more work, for some of us chronic pain patients. If you are not seeing a pain doctor, find one. If you are, ask about
extended release. They're better than constantly going up and down with pain every few hours.
Extended release is a good idea, and it works for some patients.
