FDA rejects generic version of OxyContin
In a statement, Rep. Hal Rogers, R-Ky., a state with a high level of OxyContin abuse, called the FDA decision not to approve generic OxyContin "a huge win for our region and for the thousands of families who have seen painkillers become pain makers. The FDA undoubtedly saved our nation from another deadly tidal wave of oxycodone abuse and overdoses" which might have resulted from the introduction of generic forms of the original, crushable OxyContin.
