ADDICTION. Addiction is a disease that occurs in some individuals. Taking opioids does not necessarily cause addiction, however, if you have risk factors for addiction (such as strong family history of drug or alcohol abuse) or have had problems with drugs or alcohol in the past you must notify the prescribing provider since using strong painkillers will put you at greater risk. The extent of this risk is not certain. Physical Dependence: Abruptly stopping the CS can create withdraw symptoms. Tolerance: The body becomes “used to” the CS and it may be less effective. Risk of CS Exposure to Fetus: Newborn Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) is a group of conditions caused when a baby withdraws from certain drugs (usually opioids) when exposed to in the womb before birth.
