Overdose from Opioids?
Opiates were intended as prescription to be used as for short term pain management, such as after surgical procedures or an accident. However, doctors have turned to opiate medications for general pain. Opiates don’t work well for every cause of pain. There are several situations where they are not appropriate for treatment. Several common mistreatment situations include chronic back pain, migraines, and fibromyalgia.
You and your family may be questioning what the intentions the doctors used to validate prescribing Opioids. It has been experienced those on prescription opiates for an extended period develop a tolerance to opiates. In hopes to solidify the pain, doctors increase the prescribed dosage. Leading to dependency and soon establishes addiction for the patient(s). How could medical professionals neglectfully increase dosage of these highly addictive drugs? Medical professionals have a standard to recognize and report if a substance abuse is occurring. However, they do nothing, allowing the addiction to grow. It is only a matter of time until the dosage is too much and so overwhelming an overdose occurs.
