Opioid Medications

January 3, 2022

Opioid medications are also referred to as narcotics. These class of drugs are often used to treat moderate to severe pain. They are often effective in both acute pain and cancer pain but not non-malignant chronic pain. Unfortunately, these prescription drugs have unintended consequences that can lead to side effects, dependency, addiction, and even death if not managed safely and appropriately.
