FDA Advisory Committee:
Did you think your criminal incompetence would not be revealed?

The Advisory Committee's function should be to preserve lives -- not put them at risk.

(MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.) - Arymo ER (a morphine sulfate abuse deterrent tablet) Recently I attended an FDA Advisory Committee meeting where a new killer opioid called Arymo ER was under consideration to be unleashed in the U.S.

Lynn R. Webster, MD gave testimony and answered questions regarding the controversial extended release morphine tablet...when he had an expired license. The Advisory Committee may want to reconsider their recommendation of Arymo ER because they appear to have been misled (whether deliberately or not) and this could fall under the category of "unethical" or "criminal".

US Senators Show No Courage to Investigate Big Pharma and Save Lives

My testimony in 2007 in front of US Senator Patrick Leahy's Judiciary Committee.

(MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.) - Senator Leahy How many deaths could have been prevented Senator Leahy if you had the courage to initiate an investigation into the maker of OxyContin, Purdue Pharma when I implored you to do so? Would we now be fighting for the lives of our children in a Holocaust of heroin deaths?

My name is Marianne Skolek. I had a beautiful 29 year old daughter named Jill. She had the misfortune of being prescribed OxyContin in January 2002 and was killed on April 29, 2002...

FDA Approves a Dangerous Opioid Based on Cheap Party Study!

The US is #1 in the world in opioid use. Disturbing and true!

(MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.) - opioid brain The FDA advisory committee strikes again and recommended approval of Vantrela ER (Teva Pharmaceuticals), a new hydrocodone bitartrate extended-release tablet with abuse-deterrent capabilities.

As the U.S. is fighting a devastating epidemic of prescription opioid/heroin addictions and deaths, the FDA approves yet another opioid. Maybe someone should ask the FDA "how many opioids does it take to devastate every state in the country?"

FDA Corruption Worsens as Death Toll Mounts in Drug Epidemic!

Our kids are dying! How could the FDA approve Zohydro ER when the high probability of death exists?

(MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.) - opioid drug deaths One of Dr. Robert Rappaport’s biggest "contributions" to the American people before the FDA announced his retirement was approval of an opioid called Zohydro ER.

Zohydro ER was the first hydrocodone-only opioid in doses of 5 to 10 times more heroin-like narcotic than Vicodin. The FDA disregarded their own Advisory Committee who voted 11-2 not to approve the opioid because of the Committee’s concerns about the potential impact on public health.

Why is the death toll from prescription opioids and heroin raging out of control?

Addictions and deaths expected to continue increasing in the coming years.

(MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.) - heroin opioid deaths In the fourteen years since I began exposing the criminal activity of the FDA, pharma, pain foundations and physicians funded by pharma, U.S. Senators profiting from pharma, as well as pill mill doctors, I have become more and more frustrated.
