A Note on Chronic Pain

Many people suffer from chronic pain, and our understanding of how best to manage chronic pain continues to evolve. We in the medical field have created a tremendous problem, in that we have over-prescribed narcotics (opiates) for chronic, non-malignant (non-cancer) pain in the past decade. More people die in the state of Oregon from prescription drugs than from car accidents. More and more studies are coming out that shed light on the harmful effects of being on narcotics in the long term, including their impact on mental health, sexual health, the endocrine and GI systems, among others. Plus, there are very few studies showing that chronic use of narcotics even decreases pain levels! For these reasons and others, we do not prescribe chronic narcotics, with very rare exceptions.
