As reported by The Washington Post (9/10) in their news story, FDA announces new labeling rules for opioid painkillers, that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is requiring new warning labels on Oxycontin and other painkillers. The drugs fall under the class of narcotic drugs called opiods. Many thousands of users lose their lives each year due to these narcotic drugs and the FDA hopes to curb the tide of these tragedies.

With prescription drug using rising at very high rates, the FDA is seeking to combat the continued abuse by making it more difficult to illegally obtain prescription drugs. The new labeling will help to ensure that only the users who need the powerful painkillers to survive will be able to continue to purchase them. Those who suffer from a dependency on these drugs, should be aware that help is available at qualified detoxification centers. It is the type of assistance where addiction professionals can guide each addict an individual basis to rid them of the physical dependency.
