There was really never an issue re: 'alternatives' aside from insurance reimbursement.
The issue IS about the tens of millions who need access to opiate class meds to function.
Why is it that the convo ALWAYS diverts away from the importance & efficacy of opioids?
2/You start talking about opioids and how effective they are at mediating pain & someone usually starts screaming about addiction.
Truth is, less than 1% of those who don't already have a hx of substance abuse go on to 'become addicted' by getting an RX for pain.
3/You mention that opioids are one of the most effective tools in your pain tool box & someone usually starts in with,
'There are others ways to deal with pain'.
Like we haven't tried them, or don't implement them alongside opiate class meds.
