More than 90 days of use may put you at risk of developing opioid depression, according to a new study that adds one more risk to a growing list of negative consequences surrounding opioid use. The study showed that those taking opioids for 90 to 180 days had a 25% increased risk of depression. FRIDAY, Feb. 20, 2015 (HealthDay News) High doses of powerful narcotic painkillers appear to be linked to a higher risk of depression in patients, new research finds.
The study focuses on a class of prescription narcotic painkillers called opioids, which include drugs such as Oxycontin and Vicodin. It is not clear why the long-term use of opioids is linked to a greater risk of depression, but it may have something to do with lowered levels of testosterone, Scherrer said. “We know that chronic. A new study has found that patients who are treated with opioid painkillers for longer than one month face an increased risk of depression. Although pain itself can increase a patient’s risk of depression, researchers found that the link between pain and opioid use was still present even when they accounted for the potential role of pain in causing depression symptoms. Extended abuse of prescription painkillers known as opioids could be responsible for significantly increasing one’s risk of developing opioid-induced depression. In fact, individuals who took these drugs for 90 to 180 days demonstrated an increased risk of depression of 25 percent while those who took the drugs for longer than 180 days exhibited an increased risk of 53 percent.
Opioid depression is something that commonly occurs in patients who take painkillers. When opiate drugs enter the system, they affect the levels of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is a chemical that can make a person feel extremely happy. When the drug wears off, however, depression can set in, and the person can start to feel depressed.
Opioids may be used by patients with chronic pain and depression to compensate for a reduced endogenous opioid response to stressors. Depressed patients seem to continue opioid use at lower pain intensity levels and higher levels of physical function than do nondepressed patients. Evidence suggests that opioid use can contribute to mental health problems. A 2016 study in the Annals of Family Medicine found that about 10 percent of people prescribed opioids. Depression complicates the management of chronic pain.
