Prescription opioid medicines - Opioids, part 3

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This two-page handout with accompanying video and audio recording educates people about prescription opioid medications used to treat some types of pain. It lists the names of common prescription opioids, and explains that opioid medications can be used to treat acute (short term) pain as well as chronic (long lasting) pain, clarifying that the effectiveness of their long-term use is not clear, and can be accompanied by risks, such as tolerance, physical dependence, abuse, addiction, and overdose. It identifies serious side effects associated with prescription opioids, including increased sensitivity to pain, and provides tips for what patients should talk with their doctor about before taking an opioid medication for chronic pain.
