Depade Addiction

Depade has been criticized for its potential for dependency and addictive behavior. In particular, criticism comes from the fact that it’s primarily used to combat opioid use disorder and alcoholism. Though research and approval from the Federeal Drug Administration show that the drug does its job well, it’s also been criticized as a possible substitute for alcohol and other opioids rather than a tool that actually liberates users from drug dependency.

Depade use can intensify one’s sensitivity to the effects of opioids.
