WOODBURY - Prescription painkiller abuse across the state has reached epidemic proportions, according to a 42-page report released today by state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. The report found that prescriptions for the painkiller oxycodone have skyrocketed by 82 percent over the past three years. The report also says that statewide, there was a 17-percent jump in prescriptions for the purest form of oxycodone, called hydrocodone. Overall, narcotic painkiller prescriptions rose 36 percent, the report says. The staggering numbers show that enough painkillers were prescribed in the U.S. in 2010 alone to medicate every American adult around the clock for a month. The attorney general is urging lawmakers to pass a mandatory painkiller tracking system to stop abuse and prevent addicts from "doctor-shopping." State lawmakers are considering such a plan.
