The Oxycontin® maker, Purdue Pharma, was created by members of the Sackler family. These drugs were considered to be medical marvels for pain management at the time of their release in 1996. They are widely prescribed for relief from chronic pain related to injuries, arthritis, cancer, and other conditions.
Although opioids were initially viewed as a breakthrough, these controversial drugs have been at the center of prescription opioid and non prescribed opioid lawsuits, as they have contributed to a national public health crisis. The most significant basis for many of these opioid lawsuits is that the highly addictive nature of the drugs was not properly disclosed by Purdue Pharma.
