Loyola University Health System

But the "time is brain" rule is not as simple as it once seemed, Dr. Gomez now reports in the Journal of Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases.

Chance of Being Prescribed Opioids for a Minor Injury Differs Dramatically by Where You Live

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Patients who sought care for a sprained ankle in states that were found to be "high prescribers" of opioids were approximately three times more likely to receive a prescription for the drugs than those treated in "low-prescribing" states, according to new research. Additional results of the study show that patients who received prescriptions for long courses of the drugs (e.g. more than 30 tablets of oxycodone 5 mg) were five times more likely to fill additional opioid prescriptions over the next 6 months than those who received just a few days' supply (e.g. 10 tablets of less).
