Higher opioid doses fail to lessen pain



Increasing chronic pain patients’ opioid prescription doses does not seem to improve pain, according to a Veterans Affairs study.

They found that patients who had their opioid dosage increased did not have meaningful improvements in pain, compared with patients who continued to take the same dose.
