Prescription Drug Overdoses Increase 400% For Women
Date:7/10/2013

is.href)">Drug overdose deaths spike among middle-aged women, women may be more prone to overdoses because they're more likely to have chronic pain, be prescribed painkillers, have higher doses, and use them longer than men, said Linda Degutis, director of CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. But doctors may not recognize these facts about women, said John Eadie, director of a Brandeis University program that tracks prescription-drug monitoring in the USA.

Overdose deaths from prescription painkillers skyrocketed over the past decade despite no major increases in the need for prescription painkillers over the last 20 years, said Chris Jones, a health scientist at CDC. Doctors are prescribing medications more frequently for patients who may not need them, a trend in the medical profession that needs to be reversed, Frieden said.

“A prescription drug dependency can take over your life and adversely impact your job, family and your future. If you're suffering from drug abuse issue, check into a detox center such as Harbor Village as soon as you can,” said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
