Zohydro Update


"(However) even with FDA approval, getting Zohydro won’t be easy for pain patients because of restrictions placed on (it) by many pharmacies."

Note from me: I will be taking an Easter break this week, so there will not be a Tuesday-Newsday until April 29th. Sending you wishes for a pain-free week!
