Continuing The Fight Against Opioids
In 2015, 15,000 people were reported to have lost their lives due to prescription opioids overdose.
⇰ A PETITION HAS BEEN FILED TO BAN DAILY-DOSE PRESCRIPTIONS THAT ARE ABOVE 90 MILLIGRAMS OF MORPHINE
⇰ THE CDC REPORTED THAT HIGH-LEVEL DOSES DO NOT IMPROVE PAIN CONTROL OR THE ABILITY TO FUNCTION
⇰ OPANA ER HAS BEEN PULLED FROM THE MARKET THIS PAST JULY AFTER AN HIV AND HEPATITIS C OUTBREAK.
President Trump is now declaring that opioid abuse is a national epidemic. There will be a ton of fall out around the decisions made on how to fix this problem, but hopefully we can arrive at better and more holistic treatment options. Remember, TMS Therapy is a proven and more effective alternative to pharmaceuticals!
