Bill aims to tighten restrictions on painkiller hydrocodone

BY: scott.glover@latimes.com

lisa.girion@latimes.com

The proposed law would place medications containing hydrocodone in same category as OxyContin, another opiate-based painkiller so potent and addictive that it's sometimes referred to as synthetic heroin. If enacted, patients would be prescribed fewer hydrocodone pills at one time, and there would be more restrictions on refills. In addition, pharmacies would have to follow stricter procedures for handling and storing the drug.

The restrictions follow those recommended by a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel in January.

One doctor, years of warning signs

Dr. Car­los Es­ti­andan wrote more pre­scrip­tions than the en­tire staffs of some hos­pit­als and took in more than $1 mil­lion a year, ac­cord­ing to court re­cords.

More than four years after the Med­ic­al Board of Cali­for­nia began in­vest­ig­at­ing Es­ti­andan, it per­suaded a judge to sus­pend his pre­scrib­ing priv­ileges. By then, eight of his pa­tients had died of over­doses or re­lated causes, ac­cord­ing to cor­on­ers’ re­cords.

Be­low is a look at how in­vest­ig­a­tions in­to his prac­tice un­fol­ded.
