[1] #AboutTheOpioidEpidemic : There was a 300% rise in annual #opioid overdose fatalities in the past 10 years, mostly correlated with the #Obama presidency (Here are numbers for #Mass) :
[2] #AboutTheOpioidEpidemic : What most have not noticed, the OD RATES are highest in battleground electoral states. Not blue, not red - Battleground. Very high correlation .
[3] #AboutTheOpioidEpidemic : Nearly 200,000 American lives have been lost in the #opioidEpidemic . Possibly even 300,000 . While the media howls about #Charlottesville which was tragic, the #opioidepidemic is still rarely mentioned.

Doctors are no longer a driving part of the #OpioidHysteria. They never really were. Why why why are we still getting these stories instead of what’s really going on? Alt facts much? How very Trumpian. News media needs to take a good look in the mirror & start facing the truth.
Define “overprescribing” please. 91 ppl per day die from overdoses: from what exactly? Which meds? Multiple meds or just Opioids? God I’m fucking tired of this whole bs narrative still going on.
How about the painful stories of vulnerable ppl -disabled-Veterans-elderly- being cut off from #opioids & committing suicide b/c their pain is so bad?? #SuicideDue2Pain #PainKills

Hmmm. “Surprising #VA Data About Opioid Discontinuation, #Overdose and #Suicide: Clinical Implications” Abstract is sobering. This may challenge some policy initiatives regarding #opioids. Can’t wait to see the presentation! vendome.swoogo.com/2018-rx-summit…
“Due to these concerns, the Veterans Affairs (VA) conducted analyses of national data:
1. In fiscal year 2013, patients prescribed less than 90 morphine equivalent daily dose accounted for 95.8% of the sample & 85.7% of overdose/suicide-related deaths
2. In two sets of fiscal years — 2010-2011 and 2013-2014 — opioid discontinuation was NOT associated with overdose mortality but was associated with INCREASED suicide mortality.

While UT fought #opioid epidemic, @SenOrrinHatch enabled it from DC. Here’s why it's personal for me. 1/11 #utpol
washingtonpost.com/graphics/2017/…
This isn't the first time @SenOrrinHatch has played politics with Americans' health, especially in Utah. 2/11
In 2016, @SenOrrinHatch, who received almost $180K in drug industry donations, led the way in hobbling the DEA's 3/11
