OPIOIDS.

Opioids are a class of drugs naturally found in the opium poppy plant. Some prescription opioids are made from the plant directly, and others are made by scientists in labs using the same chemical structure. Opioids are narcotics that act on opioid receptors in your brain to produce morphine-like effects. Medically they are primarily used for pain relief, including anesthesia.

COMMON OPIOIDS:

  • Heroin

  • Codeine (only available in generic form)

  • Fentanyl (Actiq, Duragesic, Fentora, Abstral, Onsolis)

  • Hydrocodone (Hysingla ER, Zohydro ER)

  • Hydrocodone/acetaminophen (Lorcet, Lortab, Norco, Vicodin)

  • Hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo)

  • Meperidine (Demerol)

  • Methadone (Dolophine, Methadose)

  • Morphine (Kadian, MS Contin, Morphabond)

  • Oxycodone (OxyContin, Oxaydo)

  • Oxycodone and acetaminophen (Percocet, Roxicet)

OPIATES.

FUN FACT!

DID YOU KNOW? 

Oxycodone/OxyContin/Percocet catalyzed the opioid epidemic. Yup this little pill is basically same-same as heroin and has been over prescribed since 1996. Both are opioids and metabolized in your body in the same way. 

OXYCONTIN FOUL PLAY?

OxyContin in 1996, it was aggressively marketed and highly promoted. Sales grew from $48 million in 1996 to almost $1.1 billion in 2000 and has continued since then.

Opiate is a term classically used in pharmacology to mean a drug derived from opium. Opioid, a more modern term, is used to designate all narcotics, both natural and synthetic, that bind to opioid receptors in the brain.
