Purdue Pharma has taken action to prevent abuse of it’s powerful painkiller OxyContin.Purdue has taken steps to reformulate OxyContin to prevent the pill from being cut,broken,chewed,crushed or dissolved to release more medication that increase the risk of drug abuse and overdoses.It is predicted the new format will result in less abuse by inhaling or injection.OxyContin and Loratab are the most drugs that are most abused from my experience.Prescription pill abuse has wide reaching effects from drugged driving that leads to DUI and vehicular assault ,drugged driving , and to the sale of a controlled substances for resale.


It appears one drug company is finally assuming responsibility to protect the public.
