THIS COULD TAKE YOUR LIFE.

THIS COULD HELP SAVE IT.

Prescription opioids can be a powerful way to help manage pain, including after surgery. But they can also slow or stop your breathing, which can lower the level of oxygen in your blood. If severe enough, this can possibly lead to cardiac arrest, brain damage, or death.1,2

"I had no idea. You can die when you’re taking these."

Yvonne Gardner

Mother of healthy 21-year-old Parker Stewart, who died after routine surgery from taking half the prescribed dose of painkillers
