Drug overdose, driven largely by overdose related to the use of opioids, is now the leading cause of unintentional injury death in the United States. The ongoing opioid crisis lies at the intersection of two public health challenges: reducing the burden of suffering from pain and containing the rising toll of the harms that can arise from the use of opioid medications. Chronic pain and opioid use disorder both represent complex human conditions affecting millions of Americans and causing untold disability and loss of function. In the context of the growing opioid problem, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) launched an Opioids Action Plan in early 2016. As part of this plan, the FDA asked the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to convene a committee to update the state of the science on pain research, care, and education and to identify actions the FDA and others can take to respond to the opioid epidemic, with a particular focus on informing FDA's development of a formal method for incorporating individual and societal considerations into its risk-benefit framework for opioid approval and monitoring.

The bad news is everywhere...death by prescription drugs. Michael Jackson or Whitney Houston get the headlines. But there are thousands of other people who suffer and die because of the wrong prescription. This is one harrowing story about a father, a family, a daughter. Fifteen year of Vanessa began taking Prepulsid after her doctor prescribed the drug to alleviate a stomach disorder. Suddenly, unexpectedly, she collapses and dies in her family home. Confusion, grief, remorse get channeled by Terence Young into determination to get to the root causes of his daughter's death. His investigations take him from Health Canada to the Corner's Office, from the sales people of major drug manufacturers to the medical profession, from the legal profession to the courts. This is a compelling story, a remarkably well-written and fully documented book which takes you into the inner workings of the global drug companies, the intricate relationships between the pharmaceutical industries and the regulatory bodies of government, the complicity of the medical profession and the tragic consequences for the public. Terence H. Young's deeply personal story will affect every reader. Death by Prescription has also been the subject of a documentary film.

Any legislative, regulatory or administrative action to correct the problem of increasing prices should be based upon a thorough understanding of the forces at play in the market and the interests of each class of trade in the drug manufacturing and distribution system. This book describes the complexities of the market for branded and generic drugs. An attempt to reduce FDA requirements to increase the number of generic competitors may endanger public health without resulting in a decrease in prices to end consumers. This book outlines some of the critical issues facing the healthcare industry today, in addition to providing a detailed blueprint for all aspects of running a successful pharmaceutical company. Executives and professionals in the pharmaceutical industry and other manufacturing based companies will benefit from Dr. Levitt's insights acquired over 50 years that enabled him to transform a small, unprofitable pharmaceutical company into a multi-billion-dollar global entity.
