Pain killers should be kept out of the reach of children. If you have children at home, it may be useful to store them in a special lockable box. Accidental ingestion of an adult dose of an opioid analgesic by a child can lead to severe overdose and death.

Difficulties in prescribing pain medications for cancer patients

Pain is a manifestation of cancer that cannot be tolerated and must be treated. Currently, federal and regional authorities are taking measures aimed at improving the availability of potent drugs for patients who need their prescription.

Hotlines have been opened on the territory of the Russian Federation to receive complaints from citizens about violations of the procedure for prescribing and prescribing Pain Killers UK.

What are weak and strong opioid analgesics?

Weak opioids are used to treat moderate pain and in patients with a long life expectancy. The main weak opioid analgesic is tramadol. In case of intolerance to tramadol, and also when its maximum daily dose does not relieve pain, it is necessary to take strong opioid analgesics. Strong opioid analgesics are morphine and morphine-like painkillers (prosidol, targin, fentanyl, etc.). Morphine blocks pain signals in the spinal cord and brain. Other strong opioids are commonly prescribed for people with morphine intolerance and for those who have difficulty taking pills (transdermal systems).

Why was I prescribed morphine or other strong opioid analgesics?

In most cases, if you are prescribed morphine or other strong opioid analgesics, it is because other painkillers do not relieve your pain. They do not always provide sufficient pain relief. If your pain is very severe, your doctor may prescribe strong opioids right away.

I was prescribed morphine. Does this mean that I’m dying?

If you are prescribed morphine, this does not mean that you are close to death. Some patients (more often cancer patients) take opioids for months or even years, while others do not need it at all. Opioids give more freedom: patients sleep better and feel less pain when they move. Appetite may return, and not only for food, but for life in general.

Do opioid analgesics completely relieve pain?

Usually yes, but sometimes they cannot completely relieve pain, especially some types of pain: bone pain, neuralgia, or pain caused by pressure sores. In this case, other treatment may be needed. For example, to treat bone pain caused by cancer, NSAIDs are often needed along with strong Pain Killers UK. And some types of pain, such as tension headaches, migraines, muscle spasms and cramps, are not treated at all with opioid analgesics. Your doctor will definitely recommend the right treatment for you.

Why do some people need a higher dose of opioids than others?

There can be many reasons, among them:

  • differences in the strength of pain;
  • differences in how your body responds to pain
  • the cause of the pain (opioids do not relieve different types of pain equally well);
  • differences in how the body resists opioids;
  • use of other pain-relieving and non-drug treatments;
  • differences in symptoms.
