Number Of Babies Born Addicted To Painkillers Has Tripled Since 2000

More and more babies are being born addicted to painkillers!

Back in the '80s and '90s, there was an increase in babies being born addicted to crack.

Now it seems, prescription painkillers are the drug of choice.

Pregnant women are more frequently using or abusing painkillers like Vicodin or Oxycontin. The number of them has increased fivefold from 2000 to 2009.

That's terrible.

It's not that more pregnant women are using drugs, it's just that pregnant women who would already be using drugs are using painkillers more than anything else.

The babies can be treated with methadone for withdrawal symptoms (the same stuff recovering heroin addicts take) and during treatment all they do is cry and are miserable.

Poor babies.

Just because the drugs are legal doesn't mean they're any better for your baby!
