If the new federal regulations are making your chronic pain an even greater pain, the culprit is the Food and Drug Administration.

The person who can help you is Virginia Behr. Reach her at the FDA
(301) 796-3436 or e-mail her at CDERombudsman@fda.hhs.gov.

You should also call or write your U.S. Senators and Congressman.

If she is referring to New York, that is not Federal.

Bette, are you having difficulty getting your meds?
