CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES are drugs or chemical substances whose possession and use
are regulated under the Controlled Substances Act. These drugs have potential for abuse or diversion.Medications which bear the letter C together with Roman numerals II, III, IV are controlled substances. Strict accountability is necessary for their use. Controlled substances must be protected from animals, children and others.
UNDERSTAND YOUR OPIOIDS (also called narcotics) which are controlled substances used
for relief moderate to severe pain. Pain relief is an important medical reason to take opioids. HOW LONG DOES PAIN RELIEF FROM AN ORAL OPIOID LAST? Short-acting (immediate release) opioids usually have an effect for about 4 to 6 hours. These
include codeine (Tylenol #3®), hydrocodone (Vicodin®), hydromorphone (Dilaudid®), morphine (MSIR®), oxycodone (in Percocet®, Tylox®, or Roxicodone®), oxymorphone (Opana®), propoxyphene (in Darvocet-N® tablets). Short-acting opioids are usually taken when Some short-acting opioid medicines contain the opioid alone while others contain acetaminophen (Tylenol®). For example, oxycodone in combination with acetaminophen
(usually name ending with –cet) is Percocet®. The total dose of acetaminophen taken in one
day should not be more than 4000 mg. Higher doses could damage your liver. People who have liver disease or drink alcohol should take even less acetaminophen. Be aware of how much acetaminophen is in your prescribed and non-prescribed medicine, such as cold remedies.
Long-acting (controlled-release or extended-release) opioids are gradually released into the
body over an 8 to12 hour or longer period. These include morphine (Oramorph® , MS Contin® Kadian®, or Avinza®), oxycodone (OxyContin®) and oxymorphone (Opana ER®). They are taken at regularly scheduled times, such as every 12 hours. In addition, a short-acting pain medicine is sometimes prescribed as needed should the pain temporarily increase. Long- acting opioids are usually used for chronic pain that lasts most of the day. WHAT SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT OPIOIDS AND ADDICTION? There is a definite risk of addiction to these medications and a relapse occurring in a person
with a prior addiction. The extent of this risk is not certain. You or your family must understand addiction is a chronic brain disease that can occur in some people exposed to certain substances such as alcohol, cocaine, and opioids. Addiction would mean that your pain has gone away but you still “crave” for these medications for other reasons, such as unbearable emotional problems. Ask yourself: Would I want to take this medicine if my pain went away? If Addiction IS NOT when a person develops "withdrawal" (such as abdominal cramping or sweating) after the medicine is stopped quickly or the dose is reduced by a large amount. Your doctor will avoid stopping your medication suddenly. Addiction also IS NOT what happens when a higher dose after a period of time is needed in order to obtain pain relief. "Tolerance" to opioid medications does not affect everyone. 7481 Warden Road, Sherwood, AR 72120

“Slowed breathing” is very rare when oral opioids are used appropriately for pain relief. If
you become so sleepy that you cannot make yourself stay awake, you may be in danger of slowed breathing. Stop taking your opioid and call 911 immediately.
Sexual Functions like mood, stamina, sexual desire and physical and sexual performance are
decreased with chronic opioid use. Low testosterone levels in men are known to occur. You MUST take advice from your obstetrician regarding use of controlled substances during pregnancy since the baby will become physically dependent upon opioids.
Constipation is very common. You will need to eat more fiber and drink more liquids than you
usually do. Many people also need to take a laxative which can be purchased without a prescription like Peri-Colace® capsules or syrup and Senokot-S® tablets. Ask your pharmacist
Nausea or vomiting does not always occur and usually settles after a few days. You can buy
nausea medicines like Dramamine® and Emetrol®. If your pain is under good control, you may be able to reduce the nausea by taking a lower dose of opioid.
Drowsiness (sleepiness) would be normal to some degree when you start taking an opioid,
but after a few days the drowsiness usually goes away. Beverages that contain caffeine, such as coffee or sodas may be helpful to offset drowsiness. If your pain is under good control, you may be able to reduce the drowsiness by taking a lower dose of opioid. If you feel drowsy, DO NOT drive or operate any dangerous machinery. Keep on top of your pain—don’t wait until pain becomes severe to take your medicine. Pain is easier to control before it reaches full force. Set a goal for pain relief that makes it easy for you to sleep at night and to do your daily activities. Take the next dose before the last dose wears off. If pain is present most of the day and night, the pain medicine may be taken at regularly scheduled times. If you are taking a short-acting opioid, this usually means taking it every 4 hours. You may need to set your alarm, especially at night, to be sure you take your dose before If you need to take more or less pain medicine than planned discuss this on your next appointment. If YOUR USUAL pain becomes so intense that you are unable to wait until your appointment, seek treatment by going to the nearest hospital emergency department or by calling 911. If you develop a new pain seek advice from your primary care doctor or hospital emergency departments. Don’t suddenly stop taking opioids without the knowledge of your Make a pain control diary to keep track on getting relief from your pain medication. Set a
goal for pain relief. Ask yourself what activities you need to be able to do with the use of pain medications. Then decide what pain rating will make it easy for you to carry out those activities. Everyone is different, but many people need a pain rating of 3 or less to be able to function well. If the pain medications do not improve your activity levels you may either need adjustments or tapering off because this would mean the pain is psychological and is not treatable with opioids in which case the medications are being used for addiction.
