The Food and Drug Administration is asking a drug maker to take one of its pain medications off the market.
Palladone extended release capsules can cause serious and potentially fatal adverse reactions when taken together with alcohol. Palladone is a once-a-day pain management drug containing a very potent narcotic.
When mixed with alcohol the drug rapidly releases the active ingredient into the blood stream. Patients currently taking palladone should consult with their physicians for alternative treatments. For more information, go to the FDA website HERE.
