In a well thought out study, it was concluded that patients who are prescribed higher doses of opioid painkiller drugs (such as Oxycontin or Vicodin) are at increased risk of death from overdose than those given lower doses. Really? I am sure glad JAMA was able to publish this one. I knew there was a reason I throw it out as soon as it comes in the mail.
