Side effect management of opioid drug is very essential, especially for the patients using analgesics without proper prescription and guidance. To validate a proof of concept of developing a chemical constituent method in minimizing the opioid drug related complication experiments were performed with carbohydrate matrixes (bacterial cellulose, fibrous cellulose and chitosan) to quantify drug absorbing ability of the matrixes. From the investigation it was found that the bacterial cellulose has more affinity towards opioid drugs. Thus this matrix can be utilized to manage over drug-dose related complications especially with the drugs like Indomethacin, Tramadol and Tapentadol.
