No systematic assessment of the scientific literature on the associations between nonmedical prescription opioid use (NMPOU) and health outcomes has yet been undertaken.
Constatations/points à retenir
A large body of evidence has identified associations between NMPOU and opioid use disorder as well as on fatal and non-fatal overdose. We found equivocal evidence on the association between NMPOU and the acquisition of HIV, hepatitis C and other infectious diseases. We identified weak evidence regarding the potential association between NMPOU and intentional self-harm, suicidal ideation and assault.
