Opioid use disorder from poppy seed tea successfully treated with buprenorphine in primary care: a case report

CONCLUSIONS: PST, which can be made through purchase of readily available poppy pods, carries risk for development of OUD and overdose. Herein we highlight the utility of a primary care opioid prescribing support team in empowering a primary care provider to prescribe BUP to treat a patient with complex OUD.PMID:34861895 | DOI:10.1186/s13722-021-00280-4

Death certificates have dispelled any doubts about just how devastating the opioid epidemic is. Between May 2020 and April 2021, drug overdoses caused more than 100,000 deaths in the U.S., according to provisional data from the National Center for Health Statistics. And a new analysis suggests that many of these deaths are from a somewhat surprising group: older Americans. In adults ages 55 and older, opioid overdose deaths rose tenfold between 1999 and 2019, surging from 0.9 deaths per 100,000 people to 10.7, according to a new study published in JAMA Network Open that analyzed two decades of data. Those numbers translate...

In this study, we examined individuals who were provided with legal; medical cannabis certifications in the state of Delaware between June 2018 and October 2019 and were concurrently being treated with opioid medications for chronic pain at a private pain management practice. Using a posthoc analysis, we conducted a retrospective cohort study on the individuals (n = 81) to determine if there was a decrease in their opioid use following medical cannabis certification. Opioid use was measured in morphine milligram equivalent (MME) through the Delaware prescription monitoring program (PMP) database. Results Overall, the avera...

Treating patients in pain with nonpharmacologic therapy (for example, physical therapy and/or complementary medicine) in place of or in combination with opioid therapy is known to help reduce pain and improve physical function without the risk of addiction. Areport inJAMA Network Open now suggests that during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, patients in pain were more likely to receive opioids than nonpharmacologic therapy compared with the same period the previous year.“The decrease in nonpharmacologic therapy and increase in opioid prescription during the COVID-19 pandemic found in this cross-sectional st...

Discussion: The most important consequence of combining the right to pain relief with the titrate-to-effect principle was the idea that a high pain score must not be ignored. This extension of the right to pain relief neglected important differences between end-of-life care and chronic pain care including: time frame, clinical setting and context, target of titration, and nature of iatrogenic harms. To help end our current opioid epidemic and prevent a future epidemic, we need to demedicalize pain and reintegrate it with the rest of human suffering as an experience connected to other personal behaviors and meanings.

Media and pop culture often portray prescription opioid addiction in the U.S. as a scourge of white communities. But recent data suggest a changing reality. While white Americans were more likely than Black Americans to die from overdoses in 2019, the rate of opioid overdose deaths rose 38% among Black Americans from 2018 to 2019, according to a recent study of hard-hit communities in four states published in the American Journal of Public Health. There was no change in the number of overdoses among other racial groups in the states assessed. [time-brightcove not-tgx=”true”] The demographic gaps are closing whe...

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTA considerable portion of the opioid epidemic has been driven by physician-prescribed opioids for pain management. Thus, policies to address the epidemic must consider not only the resources available to manage addiction, but those to manage acute and chronic pain as well. For the period 2017 - 2019, we sought to describe the distribution, by state, of indicators of the supply of resources to address pain and addiction (graduate medical education subspecialty training in pain and addiction; number of board-certified pain an...

The ongoing opioid crisis, centered in the United States, demands new insights into the complex and largely unknown mechanisms of opioid tolerance and addiction. Opioids, ranging from the natural opiates such as morphine to synthetic alternatives such as fentanyl, are widely used in the clinic as analgesics for acute and chronic pain. However, long-term administration of opioids may result in tolerance development and thus increase the risk of overdose and death. Broad availability of both prescription and illegal opioids has fueled substance use disorders.
