VA Publishes Study About Opioids and Chronic Pain

According to a study by the Veterans Administration, the long-term use of opioids has no major difference for patients dealing with chronic pain.
Researchers based their findings after examining the electronic health records of 600 patients with chronic pain and opioid prescriptions.
The researchers found that pain intensity fluctuated over time for patients on opioids.
However, they also found that discontinuing opioid treatment had no affect on the pain experienced by patients.
The researchers added that their study provides empirical evidence that pain intensity remains unchanged after long-term opioid therapy.
