#HealthAlert — Painkiller Overdoses

leave a comment »

If you are taking an opioid painkiller like Oxycontin, Vicoden and Percocet, here is an urgent warning you need to hear.

You are now at more risk of an accidental overdose and death than ever before. These drugs are now killing more people than car accidents!

Researchers found even after overdosing on opioid drugs, an incredible 91 percent of overdose patients continued to get prescriptions for the same powerful painkiller that sent them to the emergency room!

We are talking about some of the most addictive substances on the planet. And doctors are handing out these deadly drugs willy-nilly to patients who already have shown they have a problem with the drug.

The survivors of an overdose do not get their next round of drugs by switching to a different doctor, either. All they had to do was say, “Fill ‘er up.” In fact, 70 percent of those who got a refill simply went back to the SAME doctor who ordered the near-fatal painkillers in the first place.

Last year, nearly 19,000 Americans were killed after taking these pills — more than the deaths from illegal drugs like cocaine, heroin and meth — combined.

Yes you want/need pain relief.

Better to watch you opioid dosage than wind up feeling nothing.

The dead do not feel.

 

 

The facts no one wants to read.

Comments and referrals to this blog would be greatly appreciated.
