The United States is undergoing a crippling opioid epidemic, spurred in part by overuse of prescription opioids by adults 25 to 64 years of age. Of concern are long-duration and high-dose initial prescriptions, which place the patients and their friends and relatives at heightened risk for long-term opioid use, misuse, overdose, and death.
Expanding Medicaid eligibility could affect prescriptions of buprenorphine with naloxone, an established treatment for opioid use disorder, and opioid pain relievers (OPRs).
Despite increased risks for adverse effects in patients with cirrhosis, little is known about opioid prescriptions for this population. We aimed to assess time trends in opioid prescribing and factors associated with receiving opioids among patients with cirrhosis.
To examine if North Carolina (NC) opioid prescribing guidelines were associated with changes in opioid prescribing.
It is recognized that family members are a major source of diverted opioids. Yet it is not known how family member opioid prescriptions predict the development of an opioid use disorder (OUD).We conducted an observational study using commercial health care claims to investigate the association between a family member opioid prescription and an individual having an OUD-related claim in a large sample of patients with commercial insurance. We found that individuals had higher odds of having an OUD when a fami...
The opioid epidemic remains prominent in both the medical literature and popular media. Rheumatologists are among the physicians at the forefront of the epidemic because of the prominent role of pain in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and the limited options for treatment of pain. The purpose of this review is to provide an update on the trends of opioid use among patients with RA, to discuss the various mechanisms of RA pain, review the available evidence for opioid efficacy in RA, and to promote a guideline for...
To estimate health outcomes of policies to mitigate the opioid epidemic.
The opioid abuse epidemic and the deaths of otherwise healthy individuals due to drug overdose in the United States has major implications for transplantation. The current extent and safety of utilization of liver and kidney grafts from donation after cardiac death (DCD) donors who died in the context of opioid overdose is unknown.
Despite the declaration of an opioid epidemic, opioid use remains prevalent. Side-effects of chronic opioid use continue to be problematic. Opioid-induced endocrinopathies have been well documented, yet opioid-induced adrenal insufficiency (OIAI) remains underappreciated. This review summarizes what is currently known regarding the prevalence, predictive factors for the development and effect of treatment of OIAI.
Opioid dependence has become a major health care issue. Pain management of invasive surgical procedures with opioids may potentially contribute to this epidemic. We sought to determine the association of opioid-prescribing patterns with chronic opioid use.
Data regarding postoperative opioid prescriptions for patients undergoing urogynecologic surgery are sparse. Our objective was to quantify surgeon prescribing patterns for patients undergoing surgery for pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence.
The increased use of opioids to treat chronic pain in the past 20 years has led to a drastic increase in opioid prescribing in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain recommends the use of nonopioid therapy as the preferred treatment for chronic pain. This study analyzes the prevalence of nonopioid prescribing among commercially insured patients with chronic pain. Data from the 2014 IBM ® MarketScan ® databases repres...
Nonpharmacologic methods of reducing the risk of new chronic opioid use among patients with musculoskeletal pain are important given the burden of the opioid epidemic in the United States.
The opioid epidemic in the United States has placed increased pressure on physicians to engage in responsible opioid prescribing practices. However, surgeons currently have little information to guide their postoperative prescription decision-making. The purpose of this study was to assess opioid consumption after knee arthroscopy and identify preoperative factors that may predict higher opioid usage.
To describe claims for contraceptive services among reproductive aged women filling chronic opioid prescriptions.
Working-age adults are disproportionately impacted by opioid misuse. Factors associated with opioid misuse in people with workers compensation (WC) claims are not well studied. WC in some states is a "captured" market making it a more efficient site for researching the opioids epidemic. A pilot study was conducted to identify factors associated with opioid use using a large WC insurer's claims in Utah.
Our institution developed a 1-hour mandatory narcotics-prescribing education program as well as postoperative opioid-prescribing guidelines in response to the opioid epidemic. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of this hospital-wide opioid education and subsequent institution of postoperative opioid guidelines on opioid-prescribing practices after ambulatory surgery.
The causes of the opioid epidemic are incompletely understood.
The severity of the opioid epidemic has increased scrutiny of opioid prescribing practices. Spine surgery is a high-risk episode for sustained postoperative opioid prescription.
In 2014, there were approximately 200,000 incidents of an unintentional opioid overdose nationwide. The 2016 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention opioid prescription guidelines identified a knowledge deficit regarding opioid prescribing among primary care providers as a contributing factor to this epidemic.
The United States is in the midst of a nationwide public health emergency: an epidemic of opioid misuse and abuse that has been called the deadliest drug crisis in American history. This article reviews the current status of the opioid epidemic, the trends over the last 30-40 years that may have contributed to the epidemic, and a population health approach to addressing the epidemic. The epidemic is conceptualized from a population health perspective-an upstream and midstream perspective focusing on prevent...
As the opioid epidemic evolves, it is vital to identify changes in the geographical distribution of opioid-related deaths, and the specific opioids to which those deaths are attributed, to ensure that federal and state public health interventions remain appropriately targeted.
Recent supply-side efforts enacted to curb the opioid epidemic have had both positive (i.e., prescription opioid abuse is on the decline) and negative outcomes (i.e., shifts to other drugs). Given methamphetamine is notably increasing in use across the United States, we sought to understand whether use of methamphetamine has increased among opioid users and whether there is an association between these two epidemics.
