Healthcare IT News: Opioid Prescribing

Opioids are a class of drugs that involves different types of medications. These medications may be illicit drugs (heroin), synthetic drugs (fentanyl), and pain relievers (oxycodone, morphine, hydrocodone, etc). All these drugs are available legally by prescriptions and should be used carefully under the guidance of a registered practitioner. Illegal and overuse of these drugs is risky and may lead to dependence and addiction. Opioid prescribing plays an essential role in the safe and proper use of opioids. Illegal or overprescribing of opioids has severe effects on the health of individuals using them. Some of the associated risks include tolerance, physical dependence, opioid toxicity, addiction, etc. It is, therefore, important that healthcare professionals should ensure safe opioid prescribing and avoid illicit prescribing of such drugs.
