Traitement de la douleur par les médicaments opioïdes : rôle du pharmacien dans des cas d'addiction et lors de sevrage

Abstract : The history of addiction is as long as that of humans. Its existence has always been and its wellknown facets terrifying. Humans are vulnerable beings and this trait explains why addiction may have affected them. It is an insidious phenomenon and is oftentimes unexpected. Once addiction has attached itself to its victim, one must exert great physical and psychological control to get rid of it. Unfortunately, addiction is not only brought on by « hard drugs » or by behaviors such as gambling or sex addiction… prescription drugs can also be the cause. This is the case for opioid painkillers prescribed in cases for treating pain which, to this day, create a significant health crisis in France. This thesis aims to present these drugs, to explain their role in pain treatment as well as to expose their major addictological side effects which include misuse, dependance, with drawal syndrome and prescription opioid overdose. It also indicates what futures steps might be necessary to prevent their occurrence. Another aspect of this work is to highlight the pharmacist’s role in the patient’s therapeutic management when consuming opioid analgesics in order to avoid the occurrence of the undesirable effects, mentioned above, and to minimize the progression of the resulting opioid health crisis.
