Beyond the Headlines: What the FDA Decisions on Extended-release and Long-Acting Opioids Mean for People With Pain

Incomplete or inaccurate reporting on what the agency did could influence a doctor's medical decisions, putting patients at risk."

One important development was adding a prominent boxed warning that babies born to mothers on opioids may experience opioid dependency and exhibit withdrawal symptoms.
