Opiates In General Practice
According to new figures published this week by Public Health England, one in eight adults in the UK is currently on one of these drugs, which include co-codamol, tramadol and morphine. There were 141 million prescriptions issued for them last year, up from 89 million in 2008.
If you are one of these people please be aware these medications are highly addictive.
Please speak to your doctor if you would like help cutting down and stopping.
Please see these links for further information. One is a link to a BBC show called Horizon which recently featured local GPs discussing the problem.
