We are constantly dependent on opioids since it majorly assists in reducing the intensity of pain. It works excellently on the nervous system while triggering the specific receptors in the brain. These drugs are quick acting and very addictive too. Using them in excess can even lead to the overdose of medications. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) information, more than 3 out of 5 death caused by overdosed on drug consisted of an opioid substance.

According to the survey, the use of prescription opioids has been on rising by more than five times since 1999. Moreover, 42,000 people have lost their lives because of overdose till 2016. We, humans, are bound to fall sick and to gain immediate relief; we tend to overdose on traditional pharmaceutical medications. Most of us have a habit of keeping those medicines handy so that we can directly consume as and when required. However, some of the medications that offer fast-acting relief from pain are not prescribed by the medical experts. Without any realization, we keep on overdosing on the traditional medications for a prolonged time.
