What are the Common Opioids that are Prescribed?

Opioids may be more common than you think. If you’ve ever taken a medication to help with pain after an accident or surgery, or to deal with forms of chronic pain, coughing, or diarrhea, you may have taken one of these drugs below. Here is a list of common opioids:

  • Oxycodone (OxyContin, Percodan, Percocet)
  • Hydrocodone (Vicodin, Lortab, Lorcet)
  • Diphenoxylate (Lomotil)
  • Morphine (Kadian, Avinza, MS Contin)
  • Codeine
  • Fentanyl (Duragesic)
  • propoxyphene (Darvon)
  • hydromorphone (Dilaudid)
  • meperidine (Demerol)
  • methadone

What should I do after my loved one has passed because of Opioid Use?

When your loved one has passed after an opioid overdose, it is important to recover all of the evidence that you can regarding their overdoes. Items such as who prescribed the medication to them, was the doctor or pharmacy aware of how much your loved one was taking, was your loved one susceptible to an addiction with the opioid they took, did the company that produces the opioids know they were dangerously addictive, and could another non-opioid medicine have been prescribed that would have taken care of the medical needs that your loved one had. After you’ve collected these articles, it is important to contact the Opioid Death Lawyers of Dixon Law so that we can begin litigating your case immediately. The faster you hire our attorneys, the faster we can begin gathering crucial evidence to protect your family’s case.

How can a lawyer help my family’s Opioid Overdose case?

Drug Companies are massive and powerful corporations that can lobby members of Congress on their behalf to get medicine approved by the FDA. Taking on these companies by yourself can be a daunting endeavor, but when you have a opioid death attorney on your team, the fight is winnable. The Laws surrounding how drugs are made, the clinical trials that must be used to prove they are effective and safe, and how the drugs are marketed can be confusing because they are often purposely made so. When pharmaceutical companies and health insurance companies write the laws that are supposed to govern drugs like opioids, they write the laws so that they are protected from most types of lawsuits, and so that they can reap as much profit as possible. The average St. Louis and Missouri citizens will not know these laws and won’t be able to effectively use them to fight a opioid overdose case of this level. This is why hiring a opioid death lawyer with experience in trying opioid overdose cases is so important.

With these weapons, we can bring the makers of opioid drugs to heel and hold them responsible for the side effects and other medical issues your now suffers from after your loved one passed because of the use of opioids.
