What happens when NSAIDs don't do
the trick, and the pain and the inflammation persists?
In the setting of intense pain or persistent pain, in
patients who are already taking NSAIDs, we can supplement with short-term narcotic
pain relievers. The reason we prefer to use narcotics short-term is
because narcotics have the potential for habituation, which means the patient may require
higher and higher doses for pain relief, and that they become habit forming.
What are some of the examples of
narcotic pain relievers that you use?
Typical narcotic pain relievers
that we use include Codine or Codine derivatives and Darvocet or related
medications to Propoxaphine and Ultram .
