I saw an article from a US government organization today that states "While opioids -- even for medical use -- are controversial for many consumers, a new report found that many physicians may be inadvertently harming patients by going out of their way to not prescribe opioids." “The intent of the CDC guidelines was to individualize treatment, but the overly restrictive prescribing policies created by legislatures and payers have led to unintended harm for some patients,” the article said. “In addition, burdens, fears, and stigma related to opioid prescribing have been instilled in many clinicians, and that will be even more difficult to reverse.” If you want to read the article send me a PM for the link.
