Citizen petitions are part of the basic law governing everything the FDA does - at any time, any “interested person” can request that the FDA “issue, amend, or revoke a regulation or order,” or “take or refrain from taking any other form of administrative action.”[5] Originally

Although originally intended the guideline was “supposed” voluntary and only intended for primary care physicians treating non-cancer pain, many pain patients have been

- cutoff entirely or even
abandoned by their doctors – all under the guise of preventing addiction and overdoses.
