Lots of lives has been saved in the US thanks to the banning on Propoxyphene, according to data from Florida.
During the five last years – from 2008 to 2012 – the numbers of occurrences by propoxyphene in Florida at the FDLE - Florida Department of Law Enforcement - have been reduced 17 times from 322 notes in 2008 occurrences to 19 notes - a reduction of 94% - during the five years.
It is well known that the substance Propoxyophene was banned in US on
November 19 th 2010
and in the year 2010 there were 224 occurrences of propoxyphene in the FDLE´s
In the year 2011 the notes was 32 occurrences and 2012 were there 19 - as mentioned. The last two years there was no legal sale from the substance, but apparently quite some people had saved some pills - as there still were fatalities
We can assume that the numbers of fatalities will be even lower thanks to the banning.
The reduction was 94% as I have mentioned - which is a very large reduction, showing that hundreds of lives have been saved in the whole US from the years 2008 to 2012.
