The National Pain Report has learned that the California Medical Board has received the names of an additional 113 California physicians from Purdue Pharma that the company has identified as risky prescribers of its pain medication, OxyContin.
That means that Purdue has now supplied a total of 162 prescriber names to the medical board, almost three times the original estimate of 59. The list of names is not being released publicly.
“As the board receives these names from Purdue we will be going over each and every name listed to determine if further action is warranted,” said Cassandra Hockenson, public affairs manager for the board.
“We do not discuss any ongoing investigations. That said, once something is completed and action is taken it will be made available as a public record.”
