The epidemiology of prescription fentanyl misuse in the United States.

08:00 EDT 22nd April 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "The epidemiology of prescription fentanyl misuse in the United States."

US opioid overdose deaths continue to climb, with a 12.0% increase from 2016 to 2017. Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid, has been a major contributor to opioid-related overdose deaths. While fentanyl-related overdose is driven by illicit fentanyl, little is known about individuals who misuse prescription fentanyl, which is also linked to elevated overdose and mortality risk. This work aimed to fill that gap through analyses of prescription fentanyl misuse correlates.
