Ohio AG Urges Tamper-Resistant Generic Painkillers
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio’s attorney general has joined his counterparts in 41 states to urge the federal government to require manufacturers of generic prescription pain relievers to develop tamper-resistant versions of their products.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says he wants the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to ensure that generic drugs, like their branded counterparts, have abuse-deterrent properties. He says adding new physical and chemical features to prescription opioids can deter abuse and accidental death.
DeWine made his request with other attorneys general in a letter sent to the federal agency earlier this month.
Overdose drug deaths driven largely by painkiller addictions have surpassed car crashes as the leading cause of accidental death in Ohio.
