OxyContin Addiction: Doctors & Drug Lords

Written by Anna Henningsgaard

OxyContin is a narcotic drug, an opiate, that has been approved byrepparttar FDA to legally treat chronic pain. Chronic pain is documented medical condition, a progressive disease ofrepparttar 149700 nervous system and spine that causes constant a patient to experience constant, excruciating pain. Chronic pain is caused byrepparttar 149701 failure ofrepparttar 149702 body’s internal pain control systems and is accompanied by changes ofrepparttar 149703 chemical and anatomical makeup ofrepparttar 149704 spinal cord. Left untreated,repparttar 149705 condition will spread to unaffected areas. A patient suffering from chronic pain does not produce enough natural opiates, so a pharmaceutical opiate like OxyContin is an effective treatment forrepparttar 149706 disease.

Unfortunately, drug addicts have abusedrepparttar 149707 medical system and obtained prescriptions of OxyContin in order to feed narcotic habits rather than treat medical conditions. Like any narcotic, OxyContin can be highly addictive and overdosing can be fatal. Illicit prescriptions of OxyContin are both sold and abused onrepparttar 149708 black market. This situation creates a problem for governmental drug regulating agencies that are trying to take a hard line on drug abuse.

Recently,repparttar 149709 government has been cracking down harder on drugs and drug abuse, and this does not mean simply going afterrepparttar 149710 users and abusers of pharmaceutical drugs. The government has been targetingrepparttar 149711 doctors who prescribe these drugs to patients who then abuse them. The problem here is that it is difficult for doctors to know how their prescriptions are actually applied, and a doctor cannot immediately revokerepparttar 149712 prescription of a suspected abuser because withdrawal symptoms cause are equivalent torepparttar 149713 pain of torture, and can be fatal. Thus doctors who prescribe OxyContin to patients with chronic pain, and rememberrepparttar 149714 condition will progressively and permanently worsen without this treatment, have been convicted of drug trafficking, had medical licenses revoked, and been sent to prison.
