Opioids / NAS Lawyer

Prescription opioids are often used to treat patients suffering from moderate to severe pain after an injury or surgery. While they are highly addictive, opioids are considered safe when used for a short period of time and in the correct doseage. However, when an expectant mother develops an opioid addiction, her child can experience serious complications. At Mike Love & Associates, LLC, we understand that opioids and neonatal abstinence syndrome is a serious problem. Our opioids and NAS attorneys in Texas are ready to get to work determining if you are entitled to compensation from drug companies and opioid manufacturers for your baby’s injuries.

Opioids are a national crisis

Neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) is a series of conditions that a baby experiences when withdrawing from opioids. Pregnant mothers who take the following medications can pass them on to their baby through the placenta, making the baby dependent on the drug:

  • Oxycodone (Oxycontin)
  • Methadone
  • Codeine
  • Fentanyl

When the baby is born dependent on an opioid, they no longer have the drug going to their system. This can seriously damage their health as it causes the central nervous system to become overstimulated. Some of the most common NAS symptoms include:

  • Tremors (trembling)
  • Seizures
  • Sleep problems
  • Irritability (excessive crying)
  • Hyperactive reflexes
  • Fever or unstable temperature
  • Stuffy nose or sneezing
  • Excessive yawning
  • Sweating or blotchy skin
  • Tight muscle tone
  • Breathing issues
  • Difficulty eating
  • Dehydration
  • High-pitched crying
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
