  • Medical outcomes associated with prescription opioid abuse via oral and non-oral routes of administration. [Journal Article]
  • DADrug Alcohol Depend 2017 Mar 28; 175:140-145
  • Green JL, Bucher Bartelson B, … Dart RC
  • CONCLUSIONS: Analysis of acute health events recorded by poison centers indicates that death or major effects are twice as likely to occur with intentional abuse of prescription opioids via non-oral routes of administration than ingestion alone. Effective interventions to prevent abuse via non-oral routes of solid dosage forms of prescription opioids, such as abuse-deterrent formulations could have a significant public health impact.
  • Opioid dispensing and overlap in veterans with non-cancer pain eligible for Medicare Part D. [Journal Article]
  • JAJ Am Pharm Assoc (2003) 2017 Apr 10
  • Suda KJ, Smith BM, … Stroupe KT
  • CONCLUSIONS: Opioids dispensed from Part D-reimbursed pharmacies had a higher frequency of overlapping days' supply as compared to those filled by the VA, but there was minimal overlap between systems. While overlapping opioid prescriptions filled by the VA decreased from 2007 to 2009, overlap increased for prescriptions filled at Part D-reimbursed pharmacies. Tools, such as drug monitoring programs, should be used by VA and non-VA providers to decrease opioid-related harms and misuse.
