Opioids No Better Than Over-The-Counter Pain Meds For Chronic Pain
CBS Local — A yearlong study offers rigorous new evidence against using prescription opioids for chronic pain. In patients with stubborn back aches or hip or knee arthritis, opioids worked no better than over-the-counter drugs or other nonopioids at reducing problems with walking or sleeping. They also provided slightly less pain relief. Opioids tested included generic Vicodin, oxycodone or fentanyl patches although few patients needed the most potent opioids. Nonopioids included generic Tylenol, ibuprofen, and prescription pills for nerve or muscle pain. The study randomly assigned patients to take opioids or other ...

Abstract As Dr. Demetrios Kyriacou points out in a must-read editorial accompanying this paper, a growing body of evidence clearly indicates that even short-term opioid use for painful injuries or procedures carries a significant risk of leading to chronic use and potential abuse.

Over-The-Counter Pain Relievers Worked As Well As Opioids In New Study
CHICAGO (AP) — Emergency rooms are where many patients are first introduced to powerful opioid painkillers, but what if doctors offered over-the-counter pills instead? A new study tested that approach on patients with broken bones and sprains and found pain relievers sold as Tylenol and Motrin worked as well as opioids at reducing severe pain. The results challenge common ER practice for treating short-term, severe pain and could prompt changes that would help prevent new patients from becoming addicted. The study has limitations: It only looked at short-term pain relief in the emergency room and researchers didn&rsq...
