Help protect a loved one taking opioids by knowing when to take action to prevent accidental overdose
Prescription opioids can be a powerful way to help manage pain. But they can also carry serious effects, including slowed or stopped breathing. You may be at risk and not even know it.
If slowed or stopped breathing happens while you sleep, there’s a chance you might never wake up.
Opioids go by many names, and the word “opioid” doesn’t always appear on the label. It’s possible that you or a loved one could be taking them without even knowing.
Slowed or stopped breathing can happen to anyone taking prescription opioids.8
Because of your unique physiology, the severity of your experience can be unpredictable.
It can happen in the hospital, or at home, and is most dangerous when you are alone or asleep.
Oxygen levels can change quickly. Will you know when help is needed?
Now there's a way to help protect yourself at home.
You shouldn’t fear filling your prescription, but you should know how you can protect yourself from the potential dangers of opioids.
