FDA Approves High-Potency Painkiller 10 Times More Powerful Than Heroin

The FDA approved the sale of Zohydro on October 25, 2012.

Vicodin comes in doses of 5, 7.5 and 10 mg of hydrocodone, along with 300 mg of acetaminophen.

 Zohydro will come in six doses: 10, 15, 20, 30, 40 and 50 mg of hydrocodone—and without any acetaminophen.

It is the first hydrocodone-only drug to be made available to the public.


(Personally, I think leaving the acetaminophen out is a smart move. So many people who get addicted to these drugs wind up destroying their liver because of the unnecessary acetaminophen added.)
