More than half of the Americans surveyed in a recent poll said they had taken prescription painkillers in the past year, up from 43% in the previous survey, a finding that was likely fueled by rising awareness about the harmful effects of the opioid epidemic.

More than four in five of those polled said they’d taken painkillers since last year, which was a 2-percentage-point jump from the previous poll in December, when just 30% said they did.

The survey was conducted by the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, which asked people to rate their pain levels and how well they were taking their medications.

The survey found that 43% of Americans said they took painkillers last year.

That was up from 41% in December and 39% in November.

Among those who took opioids last year and said they were likely to take them again this year, nearly half said they would be taking painkillers again.

About a third said they hadn’t taken pain medication since they were 15, and less than half said their pain was treated at all.

About two-thirds of the people surveyed said they used prescription opioids, up 4 percentage points from December.

Almost one in three said they felt like a “toxic burden” on their family.

The majority of Americans have experienced family pain, including at least one of their children having a life-threatening illness.

Americans have reported experiencing more pain than they should have over the past five years, and the latest survey suggests that many Americans are suffering.

More than six in 10 Americans said that they feel “high” or “extremely high” on painkillers, the highest percentage in the poll.

But about half of Americans are likely to use opioids more than usual in the future, with 37% saying they would use opioids for a chronic condition in the next year, the most since January of last year when more than half that number said they should use opioids.

The survey of 1,000 adults, conducted from March 13-18, found that nearly half of respondents said they have used opioids at least once in the last year compared with 43% who said the same of doctors.
