What are Opioids?
Opioids include drugs such as heroin and prescription pain medications such as morphine, codeine, methadone, oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percodan, Percocet), hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lortab, Norco), fentanyl (Duragesic, Fentora), hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo), and buprenorphine (Suboxone).
Why are pain medications and heroin dangerous?
They may stop your breathing if you take too much of them or if you take them with other medications/drugs/alcohol or if you take your usual dose but have a bad chest cold, cough, sleep apnea, pneumonia, or lung disease.
