Interesting Facts and Statistics:
Opiate users sometimes experience bouts of restlessness as well as bouts of hyperactivity.
The rates of current use of cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, cigars, and pipe tobacco were unchanged between 2004 and 2005. However, between 2002 and 2005, past month use of a tobacco product declined from 30.4 to 29.4 percent, and past month cigarette use decreased from 26.0 to 24.9 percent.
A recent study found that people who smoke marijuana frequently but do not smoke tobacco have more health problems and miss more days of work than nonsmokers, for most due to respiratory illnesses.
In 2004, 6.0 million persons were current users of psychotherapeutic drugs taken nonmedically (2.5 percent). These include 4.4 million who used pain relievers, 1.6 million who used tranquilizers, 1.2 million who used stimulants, and 0.3 million who used sedatives. These estimates are all similar to the corresponding estimates for 2003.
Vicodin and other opiate type drugs travel along specific neurological pathways in the brain in order to block the sensation of pain in the body.
Primary care physicians should not hesitate to screen for potential drug abuse or dependence if a patient presents specific symptoms that are known to be associated with problem use of a substance.
