A new study shows people going through mental disorders, who spend more than 50 percent of prescribed opioids in the country.
The Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center examined the 2011-2013 data collected by the Federal Government.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock doctors say that more research needs Donations
“The study examines the relationship between prescribing opioids and the presence of psychic disorders,” says Dr. Brian of Dartmouth-Hitchcock, co-author of the study.
Locations told patients with mental disorders, accounting for 16 percent of the adult population, consumed most opioids prescribed in the country.
“A mental disorder is mostly associated with doubling the likelihood that they can get a prescription from their opioid doctors,” he said.
The site said it was not clear why, but this could happen because patients do not have to deal with stress they have to face another type of pain.
“The disparity in prescribing patients with mental disorders is very, very much for us,” he said. “We know this is a sensitive population in terms of opioid-linked side effects such as addiction, overdose, and long-term use.”
Annette Escalante working for Keystone Hall, ambulance and hospital care in Nashua, said 85 percent of the Centers of Clients to Address Mental Disorders.
“I think it’s great to see someone,” he said
Escalante and Doctors at Dartmouth-Hitchcock said doctors should be able to offer alternatives to opioid therapies for some patients to prevent chronic use.
“We need to be able to simply impose these things, because the opioid pill there would be no infrastructure right now,” he said.
The site said it was necessary to do more research to fully understand the opioid receptor for this population of people who are reasonable and to see if the results of this treatment are effective.
