Opiates are today’s hidden danger, a drug that creeps up on the user and goes beyond dependency to the horrors of full-blown addiction. Derived from the opium plant, offshoots of this most dangerous drug include morphine, codeine and heroin. Opioids are the synthetic sister which forms the narcotic ingredients of drugs like OxyContin, Vicodin and Percocet.

These drugs are all a form of anesthetic — drugs that desensitize pain. Obviously there are valuable uses, especially when one is in for surgery or after a painful accident. While these should be short-term solutions, practitioners dispense them much too readily and patients can abuse them to the point of addiction.

The More You Use It The Worse It Gets

Unfortunately, opiate/opioid users find that they continually have to increase the dosage to handle the pain and get any sort of relief. Regrettably this occurs more often than you would think.

What happens is that the opioid receptors became less sensitive to the opioids, and larger doses are required to achieve the same stimulation of the receptors which will then produce enough endorphins to control the pain.

This drug tolerance is a common occurrence with certain types of drugs especially opiates/opioids.

Additionally, there is a growing consensus among medical professionals that continued use of opioids like OxyContin will actually increase the pain. Learn more.
