The number of Americans dying every year from an overdose of prescription painkillers is up more than 5,000 percent since 1999.
According to CDC research released Wednesday, the number of Americans dying from an overdose of prescription drugs has risen to 1.6 million since 1999. That means 1 in 7 Americans have died from an opioid overdose.
And while the amount is small in comparison to the annual deaths from car crashes, it’s the highest rise of any type of death by prescription drugs in the United States to date.
The CDC says the drug of choice for people dying from overdoses is oxycodone. Of those 1.6 million Americans dying from overdoses, 527,000 used OxyContin, according to the report by the Office of National Drug Control Policy.

The CDC also noted that the number of adults aged 65 and older with a primary prescription medication also rose to 874,600 in 2014, rising to 1.2 million people in 2014.
The report does not break down deaths by how many people took part in drug abuse, a report from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention states.
The CDC said they used federal data for 1999, 2009 and 2012 to find an average annual increase of 5,300 percent per state.
