  • Any number of other prescription substances may cause at least a few deaths each year through accidental or intentional overdose. However, the CDC does not release figures on these substances on a regular basis, so there is no up-to-date estimate on the extent of their fatality-related impact.

Our prescription drugs are the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer in the United States and Europe. Around half of those who die have taken their drugs correctly; the other half die because of errors, such as too high a dose or use of a drug despite contraindications.

The European Commission estimates that adverse reactions from prescription drugs cause 200,000 deaths; so together, about 328,000 patients in the U.S. and Europe die from prescription drugs each year. The FDA does not acknowledge these facts and instead gathers a small fraction of the cases. Perhaps this is “the price of progress”?

The rise, well really dramatic rise in the trend that has now seen more people die from prescription drugs than illegal drugs each year in the US, is a recent one. Since 1999, there has been a 300 percent increase in the most powerful painkillers, such as Vicodin, and this has correlated with an increase in drug related deaths.

And yet, 91 people die from an opioid overdose in the United States every day. From 2000 to 2015, the amount of deaths by any kind of drug overdose climbed to over half a million, and as long as prescription drug sales continue growing, overdoses will do the same. “91 people die from an opioid overdose in the United States every day.”
