RX Opioids: Even When Prescribed by a Doctor
Some people might think prescription opioids are safer than
alcohol or illegal drugs, but the truth is they carry serious risks
and side effects. Talk with your doctor about your concerns and
make informed decisions about pain management together.
Prescription opioids can be prescribed by doctors to treat moderate to severe pain, but can also have serious risks and side effects. Refer to the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain to minimize patient risk.
Recovery starts with a call, call 1-800-662-HELP or visit battlingopioids.org
