Data from the Drug Enforcement Agency’s Automation of Reports and Consolidated Orders System (ARCOS) became publicly available from the @washingtonpost. The database tracks every legally sold #opioid pill in the US from manufacture to distribution. #opioidcrisis #painmanagement
The @Washingtonpost analyzed data & looked specifically at hydrocodone (the opioid in Vicodin) and oxycodone (the opioid in Percocet & OxyContin) between 2006-2012.
These opioids alone made up 75% of the total opioids shipped during this period and accounted for 76 BILLION pills. #oxycodone #hydrocodone @JeromeAdamsMD
