Presentation Description

Nicholas Anthony Atanasoff, D.O. understands that opioid tolerance develops when someone uses an opioid drug regularly so that his or her body becomes accustomed to the drug and needs a larger or more frequent dose to continue to experience the same effect. Loss of tolerance occurs when someone stops taking an opioid after long-term use. When someone loses tolerance and then takes the opioid drug again, he or she can experience serious adverse effects, including overdose, even if the amount taken had not caused problems in the past.
