Yet, when the Cochrane Group reviewed the available research to determine how many chronic-pain patients get “addicted” to painkillers, it found that it was less than 1%.

To date, few studies have assessed the impact of pain and stress together on opioid intake in rodent models.

The surprising conclusion was that when opioids were dispensed to treat pain, the “incidence of opioid dependence or abuse [was] 4.7%.”

A statistically significant reduction in opioid-related adverse affects was also found.

Yet only 7 (less than 1%) patients could be documented as having become addicted as a result of receiving opioids for pain relief.

This finding is not surprising because all commonly used opioids exert their activity predominantly through the µ-opioid receptor, which is also responsible for most side effects.

This is an example ofwhy the misuse of these pain killers has led to a doubling of emergency room visits since 2004 (USA Today 2010), and also has caused some critics to question whether many doctors who prescribe such drugs are sufficiently trained in either proper pain or substance abuse management (Meier 2010).

Another study by de Leon-Casasola found nearly 70% of patients had effective pain relief and 67% reported significant reduction of their mean opioid consumption at their 6-month follow-up.

Clearly more study is needed to understand what subpopulations of patients with chronic pain benefit from opioid therapy and what therapeutic variables are associated with success.

Studies completed to date suggest that substance abuse and dependence occur in a minority of chronic pain patients on opioids.

  • The video talks about how study drugs are being recognized in the community and keep giving percentages about who is concerned and how there are. Yet it does not give any specific effects it would have or why it should not be used by giving an scientific explanation it just says because at the end they are drugs. The thing is that these drugs carry the same risks for people that are prescribed these drugs the only differene how they are monitored. All drugs are not the same and the there is a line where medication or boosts turn into what the community views as the harmful drugs like cocaine it becomes a drug when it is used for enjoyment rather than reaching a purpose because at the end of the day they are all just chemicals branding them as drugs just becomes poster material to spout to the general public

  • i mean if you have to choose paying for a resit which costs a ton or paying for something that costs next to nothing id take the latter.
    ofc who studies only to pass for that also counts as failure:( just dont be dumb and take them responsibly only on finals not on regular days or project work.

  • If kids with ADHD can take it as YOUNG AS 6, I don’t see how a healthy teenager will have the drug monster come from under their bed and strangle them in their sleep. This “War on Drugs” rhetoric is getting really old.

  • If he was the type of Pediatrician that had child patients, and I was his patient as a minor, the way he talks and the way he sounds words out i’d just nod at everything that i don’t care about and shake my head at the rest until he asks why and then i nod so i can gtfo and get a new doctor. My god.

  • These dumbasses think they are going to stop this. If you prescribe it to a healthy teen you can take the same dose as another healthy teen. When prescribed they ask questions. No tests. So what is the difference.

  • I smoked my first Cigaratte at a Cricket Camp when i was 14. I still do..once in 3 months on social occasions. Now I’m 17. So I’m pretty sure of myself that i won’t get addicted to stupid fucking prescription drugs? XD

  • The society requires the kids to work hard to pass hard exams in order to get great jobs to pay for bills. And people are born with different level of intelligence. However, you can’t just not compete if someone else is smarter than you. The drugs are necessary and it’s the society’s fault. Survival of the fittest

  • These “Study” drugs are prescribed to kids anyway. Its as easy as going to a doctor and remembering ADHD symptons from the internet. And of course this is going yo lead to more kids getting their hands on it.

  • Bruh if you take adderall most of the time you’ll use it for stuff other than studying. If want to stay up late just use caffeine or something

  • They believe that if they use they can fuck their book but you most show that the real succees ful people in community dont use from it and also the disadvantages is more than that for ex if you have blood pressure ritalin can fuck your vessles in the easiest way the temperature of your body become ver high you can use b1 jinko caffeine is better choises and also low sleep can improve your performance plus exercise

  • Long term opioids are the only reason I am alive right now. But that won’t last much longer I am afraid. My opioids have now been reduced to 180MME from over 360MME’s since 2006 and now I am a zombie and bedridden because of pain! I have no clue why people are dieing from these drugs. There has to be a lot more going on than the person taking opioids to kill them. I agree there is a limit to certain opioids that someone can take before it will kill them. I guarantee you I could kill myself with Naproxen or Ibuprofen also. Some people with chronic, acute pain must take opioids to get a reasonable pain reduction. I would bet there is more going on with people who have died lives than just physical pain! Please stop this CDC mandate before it gets me also!!

  • Doctors are supposed to help people out of pain, it’s the irresponsible people that are overdosing not the legitimate pain patients.  Opiods saved my life, without them I cannot walk or drive or think.  If you had to decide whether to be bedridden or take a pill, trust me you’d take the pill.

  • So now the want to eliminate opiates that let nee get up to function and pay my Bill, lots of these Doctors don’t want to write scrip,to much work for them so then we suffer every day, I guess since you can’t take care of my pain, keep me with physically therapy, and then i starved or go homeless.

  • They are not bad for you just don’t be dumb obviously you shouldn’t take a bunch at one time and go way over the limit know your limit dumbasses
