New Prescription Opiate Zohydro Has Strong Potential for Abuse Warns Aid in Recovery


(PRWEB) August 28, 2014

Aid in Recovery, a full service drug and alcohol treatment center, released a statement today regarding the potential for abuse of a dangerous new painkiller, Zohydro, which is marketed to chronic pain sufferers. The drug, an extended-release painkiller that contains hydrocodone, is available in doses up to 50 milligrams, which is much higher than many similar hydrocodone prescription pills.

According to the manufacturer, Zogenix, the drug was created to avoid liver damage, which is a risk with drugs that contain both hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Zohydro contains no acetaminophen, and so negates that risk.

The drug is meant to release small dosages of hydrocodone to the body over time. However, Zohydro contains no abuse-deterring properties, so addicts can easily crush up the drug and snort it to receive the entire dosage of hydrocodone immediately. The potential for abuse is alarming, and since there are so many other choices for pain medication, many of which already contain abuse-deterrents, Zohydro is a particularly dangerous and unnecessary medication. Even Zogenix’s page on Zohydro warns of addiction and abuse risks, “even at recommended doses.”

Aid in Recovery calls for heavy FDA scrutiny of Zohydro, and believes that the best solution is likely the removal of the drug from the market. Instead, medication manufacturers should focus on the creation of pain creams and other non-addictive pain solutions with limited potential for abuse.

“Zohydro is just another drug that can further prescription and opiate abuse in this country, which in recent years is such a rapidly growing epidemic,” said Michael Lukens, Psychologist at Aid in Recovery. “We need more common sense products that don’t worsen this trend, not more drugs that feed addiction and introduce new users to opiates.”

Aid in Recovery will continue to monitor the news surrounding Zohydro, and hopes to see a resolution that keeps new drugs out of the hands of prescription drug and opiate abusers.

Recent Reports State That 19 Million Americans Abuse Prescription Drugs; FDA and Novus Medical Detox Agree That Education is Needed


New Port Richey, FL (PRWEB) August 11, 2014

Reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) state that 46 Americans die every day from prescription drug overdose, which adds up to about 17,000 deaths annually. The reports also state that poisonings by drug overdose have tripled over the past 30 years. (1) Novus Medical Detox, one of the only Florida-based detox centers serving high-dosage drug abuse patients, states that the reason behind the high number of fatalities lies in inadequate drug education.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) carries this same belief, and has responded by implementing a new drug education program. The program seeks to educate doctors who prescribe these highly-addictive painkillers, as well as the patients who are taking them. The program’s mission is “to teach doctors about proper opiate prescribing for pain patients to minimize the risks of diversion and addiction.” (4)

The United Nation’s World Drug Report 2014 stated that in 2012, 6.1% (19 million) of Americans abused prescription opioids, including morphine, codeine, OxyContin and Vicodin. This figure categorizes the United States as a country that abuses prescription drugs more than any other country in the world. (2) In an effort to lower the number of people harmed by these drugs, Novus warns Americans to exercise caution when receiving a new prescription from a physician, and to ask questions related to its side effects.

“Intentionally or not, Americans may be underestimating the highly addictive nature of drugs such as opioids,” stated Novus Executive Director Kent Runyon. “It may start as nothing more than filling a prescription for legitimate pain, but overdose may result when a patient seeks to elicit a stronger high from these drugs.”

Novus recommends that the following steps be taken when being prescribed a new medication (3):

●    Be sure that the prescription comes from a trusted physician;

●    Only use the medication as prescribed;

●    Ask the physician about the medicine and its effects;

●    Conduct your own research about the drug’s effects; and

●    Be prepared—ask your doctor what to do if one becomes addicted.

All of these tips are important to heed before a patient starts to take a medication, because addiction may begin with the patient being unaware of a medication’s initial effects. This patient may begin to take pills more liberally than prescribed, and the dangers of addiction do not lie far behind.

Runyon maintains that comprehensive drug education, starting in grade school and continuing throughout adult life to physician visits, can help to significantly reduce the number of Americans addicted to such drugs.

While new preventative measures are being taken, Novus recommends looking out for the following symptoms or behaviors (but not limited to), if someone suspects that a loved one is abusing pain reliever prescription drugs (5):

●    Nausea, drowsiness;

●    Mood swings and anxiety;

●    Slowed reactions, movement and breathing;

●    Jittery or secretive; and/or

●    Neglect of work/school responsibilities.

Runyon advises those who are dependent upon any abusive substance(s) to seek out safe, medically-supervised detox programs, and to use those with integrated medicine that allows the detox process to be as comfortable as possible.

What Are Some Prescription Drug Abuse Effects?

Prescription Drug Abuse Effects can be just as damaging as Illicit Street Drugs like Marijuana, Opiates and Methamphetamines. Just because people can purchase these over the counter doesn’t mean they are safe for everyone. What could help one person can destroy another. If you are addicted to Pain Killers for example, it could cause Liver Problems.

What’s worse is if you use Pain Killers with sedatives, you can weaken your central nervous system and get a heart attack or stroke. This happens more often that we like to admit. Don’t believe me? Look at Michael Jackson and Anna Nicole Smith. These were two people with everything in the world to live for. But they thought Prescription Drugs was a great, legal escape and they paid with their lives. Both were in the prime of their careers with money, influence and connections most of us only go to sleep at night and dream about.

Esophageal spasms are common that make it hard to digest your food. Not to mention that it could take years to recover from Prescription Pill Addictions. Withdrawals can be terrible, and some people will never stop until they are dead or through a Forced Intervention.

What makes this worse is that many people start Prescription Drug Abuse to escape depression. But not only do the problems they were originally trying to avoid not go away, their health gets worse so later down the road they have to face these issues and health challenges at the same time. Not to mention these problems more than likely exacerbated over the period of time they were addicted to narcotics.

Right now I don’t believe the government does much to monitor the control of Prescription Drugs. And not too mention the price of Prescription Drugs keeps rising which hurts the average working stiff. These are just a couple things you might wanna think about before dropping some more Pain Killers.

Let Brian Garvin and Jeff West teach you about Drugs Intervention and Substance Abuse Intervention at our Substance Abuse Prevention Website.
