The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has requested that a formulation of oxymorphone hydrochloride, marketed as Opana ER, be withdrawn from the market due to abuse, saying that the benefits of the product no longer outweigh the risks.

The FDA says that while its request for the manufacturer to withdraw the drug from the market is voluntary, if Endo Pharmaceuticals does not cooperate, it will begin taking formal action to remove the drug’s approval.
