vs Pride Academy...Girls at 5pm Boys at 6pmBasketball Games Tuesday, February 13, 2018 @ 5pm at UHCS against Lady LibertyUPDATEThere has been error in the Opioid Fact Sheet created by the Department of Education to be disseminated to parents of student athletes and cheerleaders. The fact sheet incorrectly states that Tramadol/Oxycontin is not an opioid when in fact it is.Until the DoE corrects this we want to ensure that as parents you are not ill-informed about the safety of Tramadol/ Oxycontin.
Tramadol /Oxycontin is absolutely an opioid analgesic. It has addictive potential just like any other opioid.Additionally, Tramadol/ Oxycontin is contraindicated for use in all children under the age of 12 and other populations under the age of 18 as of January of this year; therefore, the contraindication is not yet reflected in the label.The medications to be prescribed should be left to the provider. It is imperative that the public be informed about potential risks of opioid medications in an effort to stem the epidemic.
