A friend texted me this,
TORONTO, OH -
Police in Toronto confirm a 5-year-old girl has overdosed on suboxone .
This happened just before 8 p.m. Thursday.
According to Toronto Police Chief, Randy Henry, the child took a box of tablets out of her father's drawer.
She was then taken to the hospital and her condition as of early this morning is unknown.
Right now the Jefferson County Prosecutor's Office is investigating this incident to see if any charges will be filed against the father.
The case has also been sent to the Jefferson County Children Services to review.
END

That is awful news to hear assuming it is true. Yes, an opiate naive youngster may die from an overdose of buprenorphine. It has happened before and it won't be the last one either.

We were all told about how to store and protect our medicine when we were first induced. At least my doctor did and they were strictly by the book. I remember being told to lock it up, hide it, not leave it unattended, and would not get a refill unless I had a police report stating it was stolen from my home.

Take care everyone. Johnathon (SP?) had a similar issue a fews ago and posted about it here. I'll have to do some digging to find it. But he felt terrible that his child got into his Suboxone script. The kid was okay but it was a close one.

Terrible news.
