Understanding Pain: Stopping Opioids

Following on from the Understanding Pain Video, this Australian video from the same author explains the place of opioids, such as codeine and morphine.

A Pain Management Physician from the USA gave this review: "Nice article describing the basic risks of opioids. Although opioids are an important tool for acute and post-op pain, the long term benefits are significantly less.  There are some patients that achieve significant functional and chronic pain benefit from opioids but the rate of improvement diminishes as the dose and risk rise.  Optimally, titration off of opiates is the goal."
