How pain killers sometimes increase chronic pain

Becoming addicted to pain medication is a disease. This is because the painkillers (e.g. Vicodin, OxyContin, Norco, Hydrocodone) - commonly prescribed by physicians to treat pain - cause a change in your brain chemistry that is not under your control.

Addiction to opioids can lead to fatal overdose. According to the CDC, 15,000 Americans died in 2011 as a result of opioid overdose. This is triple the rate from a decade ago.1 The alarming trend in opioid overdoses has caused the Centers for Disease Control to declare opioid addiction an epidemic.
