FDA advisory panel recommends ban of pain medications Vicodin and Percocet

An advisory panel for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently recommended limiting sales of acetaminophen products like Tylenol and also recommended banning prescription pain medications Vicodin and Percocet. This recommendation will prompt more people to change their habits and focus on joint pain remedy and pain relievers found in the natural vitamin supplements industry for arthritis treatment.

Acetaminophen, along with prescription pain medications like Vicodin and Percocet, have all recently made headlines attracting consumers' attention because the FDA panel believes the drugs pose a risk of liver failure. The headlines underscore why 32 percent more people are now choosing arthritis remedy supplements like Flexcin, which offers the only joint pain treatment with the CM8TM ingredient.

"Like millions of others, I have little interest in taking prescription pain medications because of the uncomfortable and dangerous side effects that can possibly do even more harm to my body," said Lisa Sharron, who takes Flexcin arthritis remedy regularly. "Additionally, I don't want to just put a mask over my pain, I want to repair my arthritis so I can get back to living a normal life, which Flexcin joint pain remedy allows me to do."

Unlike prescription pain medications that work to mask pain, Flexcin with CM8 (cetyl myristoleate) is a natural vitamin supplement that instead works to repair joint damage. Flexcin with CM8 works as an arthritis remedy, joint pain treatment and arthritis treatment for hip pain, shoulder, knee, elbow, hand or foot pain, and muscle pain. Cetyl myristoleate is clinically proven to promote optimal joint health by helping to stimulate the lubricating fluid in the joints, support stronger cartilage and increase total mobility.

    This is so sad to hear. I have chronic pain of fibromyalgia right now I have lortabs -- don't work at all for me and flexril == haven't noticed much relief. I will probably need to take something stronger to relieve this pain but they're thinking of taking them off the market! I am in constant daily pain! I used to be extremely active person and now I can barely walk most days! Please people rethink this there are many of us in dire pain and we need relief.

    I been in pain for a year now and dr has yet to prescribe anything that works. Seems fear of addiction and getting sued are of more importance than people like myself who battle pain daily and have no relief!
