New Pain Medication Just Approved

I came across this, and thought some might be interested.

FDA approved it just yesterday (7/16/09)

It is a rapid absorption Fentanyl oral disk called Onsolis.
It enters bloodstream in minutes vs. the 30 or so it takes for a pill.
It should be on the market this fall.

If I'm not mistaken, BioDelivery Sciences International, Inc. (BDS International) is the maker of this drug.

Hello Shelly,
Do you remember me? It is Laura. We spoke the last time I posted several months ago.
This new fentanyl pill sounds like it will work wonders!I used to take the fentanyl lollipops and then the 30 minute pills. Unfortunately, my Insurance Co. only pays for half of my medications and it use to cost me $700.00 a month for my fentanyl medication. I begged my Dr.(I guess he helped produce the fentanyl pill)to come up with another medication option! Eventually, I ended up with methadone for pain medication(some Dr's believe my methadone medication is a street drug).LoL!
Blessings,
Laura
