Why Medication Management is Critical for Long Term Health
Medication management for acute and chronic pain has become challenging in recent years for providers whose specialities are not pain management. While opioids and painkillers are a common and sometimes necessary treatment plan options for patients experiencing pain, these medications come with concerns and risks. One of these risks is the development of tolerance which occurs when a patient requires a higher dose to get relief. Other medication risks include liver issues, brain damage, and other side effects. Some of these risks actually happen when a patient is instructed to wait to see a qualified pain specialist and instead receives medications from a primary care provider or urgent care facility.
