Painkillers, Be Careful Kissimmee Orlando FL👤by Orlando Vargas 0 Comments 📅January 8th, 2013, 07:00
In today’s competitive world that we live in many people, especially athletes will go to extremities to be the best at any given sport. If you are or were an athlete yourself or even workout on a weekly basis, you know that pain and injuries comes along with the territory.
With all of this said many people are turning to painkillers as a means to deal and cope with injuries or pain. One that is being widely used among football players is Toradol despite its warnings, which include gastrointestinal bleeding, kidney failure, serious cardiovascular thrombotic events, myocardial infarction (heart attack), and stroke, which can be fatal.
Toradol is just one of many painkillers being used today and although there have been multiples deaths related to the use of these painkillers, people are still using them. One of the reasons they claim to use these painkillers is that without them they would not be able to perform on big games thus reducing their chances of getting a big paycheck in the future.
But athletes are not the only ones who abuse or misuse these painkillers. Many individuals who have surgery are prescribed medication to deal with the pain that comes along from the surgery also fall into the traps of these painkiller medications.
Many times is hard for family members or loved ones to be able to notice if someone is abusing painkillers and require professional help to deal with the situation. That is why House of Freedom has professional staff members that are able to help identify if an intervention might be required and as a result an admission to a substance abuse treatment clinic in order to prevent any further damage.
