In October, President Trump declared the opioid crisis a “health epidemic.” KPCC has previously reported on the opioid epidemic as well as other issues, including cases of patients under-medicating. And doctors regularly prescribe opioid pain medications like Oxycontin and Vicodin.

As part of a reporting partnership with USC Annenberg’s Center for Health Journalism, KPCC reporter Jill Replogle would like to know about your experience with prescription opioids. Are you a medical provider? Did your dentist or doctor prescribe you the medication? Let us know and help inform our reporting.
