Here and Now NPR show on opioids and chronic pain

Postby jul2873 » Mon Feb 15, 2016 7:37 pm

Check out this show on NPR: http://hereandnow.wbur.org/2016/02/15/c ... ts-opioids

A chronic pain patient describes how impossible it is now for her to receive the medication that she needs to function, in spite of the fact that she used opioids for twelve years without any problems at all. Those of you with similar stories might want to post in the comment section after the show.

A very interesting interview. It comes across that a blanket system is being followed without takng consideration of the individual patient.

I like this show - don't get to hear it regularly, but it's always good when I do.

Apparently they have covered this quite a bit. Here is another story there about opioids: http://hereandnow.wbur.org/2016/02/16/u ... s-for-pain
