The papers explain the danger of keeping the opioids within the reach of the children. Such painkillers include oxycodone, codeine and methadone.

A co-author of the study Dr. David Juurlink who also heads Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center, Toronto says that the drugs are very common in most households in North America, to the extent that the users don’t consider how dangerous they are to their kids. They can store the drugs carelessly in areas where the children can find them with ease.
