Prescription Drugs Side Effects: Opiods
Opioids, commonly prescribed to relieve pain, include morphine, codeine, OxyContin, Vicodin and Demerol
Taken as prescribed, opioids can be used to manage pain without untoward prescription drugs side effects. Long-term use also can lead to the prescription drugs side effects of physical dependence and addiction; withdrawal symptoms may include restlessness, muscle and bone pain, insomnia, diarrhea, vomiting, cold flashes and involuntary leg movements= JUNKIE
OxyContin and heroin have similar effects; therefore, both drugs are attractive to the same abuser population OxyContin is sometimes referred to as "poor man's heroin," despite the high price it commands at the street level= JUNKIE
