Marybeth Hays, Walmart's executive VP of health and wellness and consumables, was quoted stating that the company is taking action in the fight against the nation's opioid epidemic. The agency adds that three days or less worth of opioids "will often be sufficient" in acute pain cases for new patients, while "more than seven days will rarely be needed". They will complete a pain managementcurriculum by the end of August.
In 2017, CVS announced that it would enact a seven-day limit for opioid prescriptions for certain conditions and new patients.
