Dr. Donald Teater, Medical Advisor to the National Safety Council, recently published a white paper regarding opioid side effects.
 
A la David Letterman’s top ten list, symptoms indicating a negative opioid experience:

  1. Constipation/Nausea
  2. GI Bleeding
  3. Delayed Recovery
  4. Cognitive Impairment/Brain Changes
  5. Respiratory Depression
  6. Hypogonadism
  7. Hyperalgesia
  8. Diversion/Crime
  9. Addiction
  10. Death

 

Don’t wait 30-60-90 days to evaluate the success/risk of an opioid prescription regimen.

 

Tolerance and subsequent withdrawal issues can arise in as little as one week.
