78 Americans die everyday due to opioid overdose.
We are talking about medicine prescribed by a doctor for legitimate health concerns .
This is not necessarily due to addiction , but due to dependence and the very tricky ways these drugs work in the human body…

Weight changes , stress levels , other medications s r other factors can cause adverse reactions.
In these cases we need to stop using the word overdose which has a connection to addiction because under the right tragic circumstances ones usual dose of an opioid can prove deadly .
