Our guest today (who has asked to remain anonymous), shares her story of how her doctor prescribed opioids for pain for a variety medical conditions. Due to the fact that she knew the possibility for addiction, she tried using over-the-counter Naproxen, only to find that it led to creating a heart murmur!
Tune in as our guest shares her story of the wild ups and downs she’s incurred with many doctors, how opioids have affected her life, and how she has chosen not to take them.
You’ll also learn more about this growing epidemic, how to recognize the signs of someone who’s become addicted, and how you can get help if you, or a loved one, is addicted to opioids.
Many people think that an opioid addiction is something a ‘typical’ drug addict has, and that opioids are an illegal substance. Both of those assumptions could not be further from the truth.
Opioid addiction spans every generation, every walk of life, and affects people who have never been addicted to anything else. The stories are many and varied, and you will be stunned at the people who have unknowingly become addicted to something that was given to them by their doctor.
