[Alert] Pain Pumps KILLING Seniors!

Chronic pain can put your entire life on hold.

You can forget about that round of golf… family meals… or even getting out of bed.

And if you’re one of the countless seniors who havean implanted pain pump, you’re situation could get a whole lot worse.

Because there’s new evidence that mainstream docs are putting dangerous, unapproved meds into these devices… and it’s KILLING seniors. 

In fact, this problem is so out of hand the FDA is even taking notice!

Here’s what you need to know to protect yourself and your loved ones.

The FDA has issued a warning to healthcare providers about the risk of administering pain meds that are not approved for use in implanted pain pumps.

You see, these pumps deliver medication directly into your nervous system, so they can neutralize your pain faster.

And these can be great for folks who have severe, hard-to-treat pain when they work correctly and are filled with the proper drugs.

But as it turns out, neither of those things are happening.

There are countless reports of the deadly drug fentanyl being administered via an implanted pain pump.

This highly-addictive drug kills thousands of Americans every year when taken orally. Just imagine what it can do when pumped directly into your nervous system!

Even worse?There are 14 deaths already attributed to pain pumps.

And numerous patients have experienced dosing errors and pump failures that lead to dangerous infections, cognitive damage, respiratory issues, and even cardiac failure.

And you know it’s bad when the FDA is taking notice.

In the safety alert, the FDA reminds providers that only meds approved for use with these pumps should be administered through them.

Why? Besides jeopardizing your life, most of these drugs contain preservatives and other chemical characteristics that can damage the pump tubing and lead to corrosion of the mechanics inside.

And, yet, we’re supposed to put that stuff inside our bodies?!

If you or someone you love has received a pain pump implant, contact your doctor immediately to discuss whether your meds are approved for use with the pump.

Or discuss with your doc if there is a better alternative for pain management.
