The cruel twist is that the newly approved pure hydrocodone product, Zohydro ER will be made by the same company that manufactures Vivitrol, a drug used to treat patients addicted to opioids or alcohol.

(MYRTLE BEACH, SC) - Zohydro ER My recent articles have been calling the FDA out for approving a painkiller called Zohydro ER. This approval was given in spite of the FDA's Advisory Committee not recommending the dangerous drug be made available in the U.S.

Does the FDA Have a Conscience -- Or Are They Too Corrupt to Care About American Lives?

(MYRTLE BEACH, SC) - Lynn Webster, MD Chronic pain is pain that lingers even if you are no longer ill or injured and other criminal statements the medical profession is being fed by profiteers in a "pay to play" scheme.

Last week I wrote about the Veterans Administration and the American Chronic Pain Association ties to the FDA "pay to play" scandal with the pharmaceutical industry.

FDA Accused of `Pay to Play` Involving Universities of Rochester and Washington; Experts Connect Epidemic of OxyContin Addiction

Pain Medicine News is mailed to "the highest-prescribers of pain medication." Why would they target the highest prescribers? Could it possibly be to keep the flow of painkillers in the US and Canada to increase the profits to Purdue Pharma and other pharmaceutical companies riding the addiction and death train?

(MYRTLE BEACH, SC) - Lynn Webster, MD My interest has been peaked by a newspaper called Pain Medicine News advertising itself as THE INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER FOR PAIN MANAGEMENT.

There are problems here though. First at the top of the page of Pain Medicine News very proudly displayed is the "Purdue Pharma" insignia with an invitation for the reader to visit PurdueHCP.com.

Marianne Skolek - USA / Canada

Salem-News.com Investigative Reporter

Email: Marianneskolek@aol.com

Salem-News.com Investigative Reporter Marianne Skolek, is an Activist exposing Purdue Pharma for their criminal activity in the promotion, marketing and over manufacturing of OxyContin throughout the United States and Canada. She began her work nine years ago after losing her daughter, Jill to prescribed OxyContin.

In July 2007, she testified against Purdue Pharma in Federal Court in Virginia at the sentencing of their three CEO's - Michael Friedman, Howard Udell and Paul Goldenheim - who pleaded guilty to charges of marketing OxyContin as less likely to be addictive or abused to physicians and patients. That same month she also testified against Purdue Pharma at a Judiciary Hearing of the U.S. Senate.

In working with the Department of Justice and Attorney Generals, Marianne has been instrumental in charges being lodged against Purdue Pharma. She also has been retained as a consultant with private attorneys working on behalf of victims and their families against Purdue Phama.

Marianne is a leading authority on the marketing tactics used by Purdue Pharma through their funded pain societies such as the American Pain Foundation in pushing OxyContin for the "under-treatment of pain" in the United States and Canada. The under-treatment of pain is a marketing fallacy contrived by Purdue Pharma and allowed by the FDA. She continues to hold the FDA accountable for this epidemic of OxyContin and lobbies them to reclassify this narcotic to be prescribed for severe pain only - never moderate pain. To date, the FDA has turned a blind eye to the epidemic of death, addiction and abuse of this powerful narcotic.

Marianne is a nurse having graduated in 1991 as president of her graduating class. She also has a Paralegal certification. She served on a Community Service Board for the Courier News, a Gannet newspaper in NJ writing articles predominantly regarding AIDS patients and their emotional issues. She was awarded a Community Service Award by the Hunterdon County, NJ HIV/AIDS Task Force in recognition of and appreciation for the donated time, energy and love in facilitating a Support Group for persons with HIV/AIDS.
