We, the People of the United States, feel we have the right to have access to medications that have, as their primary effect, relieving of acute or chronic pain. Vicodin (Hydrocodone Hydrochloride) has a proven track record of being a reliable medication for relieving pain enough that those afflicted with disabling pain, may function day to day. It appears that an administrative panel of the FDA have voted to ban Vicodin from use by patients, at the same time as they have moved to try to decrease dosage of certain over the counter pain products containing "Acetaminophen" (Tylenol). We see these actions as ultimately causing millions of people to suffer needlessly with intractable pain, simply because allegedly SOME people abuse these substances. Some people abuse and intake too much food, but it would be folly to ban all people from having access to food, in the same sense that it will cause needless suffering to millions, to remove one of the staples of pain management. Thus, we petition the government for redress of our grievances against this wrongheaded and ultimately, dangerous path which the Food and Drug Administration has embarked upon. We believe this vote was an over-reaction and a knee jerk response to a phantom problem. At the very least, before any hasty actions are undertaken, this should be put to a popular referendum to the people that will ultimately be harmed by this foolish proposed ban.

    I myself have bad back pain from an injury in 1996. Without my pain medication I would not make it through my everyday life. I take them to function without being in so much servere pain that I can not see straight

    This is ridiculous, I've never seen anything like it. I been suffering from back pain all my life (scoliosis) Not to mention a torn rotor cuff. The Government needs to stay out of this. They're are people who actually need them . For all the addicts that want to get high. All you're doing is ruining your life. Why should this be changed because of the non responsible addicts ? I was getting refills 6 month supply now i have to get them on a month to month basis. THE responsible people like me and others are paying the price because of the idiots in Washington D.C... Why didn't we the people get a chance to vote for this. I'm 100% against this. I need them for pain which I'm in pain all the time . It hurts to walk or stand. This is not right. This must be stopped. The tyrants in D.C need to all be voted out. I'm sick of this.
