OPIOIDS CAN SLOW OR STOP BREATHING.
Will you be able to call for help?
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.
Do any of these risk factors apply to you?
Do you combine opioids with other sedating substances, such as:
- Prescription sedating drugs, including sleep or anxiety medications known as benzodiazepines and gabapentinoids?
- Over-the-counter sedating drugs, including some antihistamines and antinausea medications?
You selected the following risk factor(s), which may put you at higher risk when taking opioids
You did not select any of these risk factors. However, it’s possible to experience slowed or stopped breathing at any time while taking prescription opioids.
But there’s something you can do to help protect yourself or a loved one.
