FDA Warns About Unapproved Drugs…

Happy Weekend Everyone,

This article recently put out by the FDA warns everyone who is has a Medtronic or Flowonix Intrathecal Pain Management line of pumps inserted in their hip, abdomen, buttocks or other location that you need to watch which medication your doctor is using in that unit.  Currently one of the manufacturers had FDA approval for only two medications to be used in their unit.  Of all the people I speak with in person and in various chat groups, I can honestly say that there are more than six being used as of my posting, with only two approved for use.
