Doctors and patients have long believed that Opioid are powerful medicines for chronic pain despite their risks. But it has come to know that this reputation can be a myth
Researchers said that a government-funded study is one of the first long-term studies to compare oxycodone compared to acetaminophen, such as acetaminophen in long-term back pain and arthritis and morphine, such as acetidoidone and morphine.
After one year of treatment, Opioid was no better in improving the daily functioning pain, such as sleep and ability to work, found in the study.
According to the results published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, opioids were slightly defective in controlling the intensity of pain, and patients were told about many side effects.

“It raises questions about our beliefs about the benefits of Oxyx.”
These findings are in the U. S. In many years, he encounters medical practices, where opioid has been determined for millions of patients for more chronic pain than other countries – even if their long-term efficacy was lacking in data.
While the doctors are pulling back, the use of opioid and the increase in abuse has created a lot of crisis which kills thousands of Americans every year.

The study is also another setback for Odiode makers, such as Purdue Pharma LP, who are already facing hundreds of lawsuits filed by American cities and counties in the OPOID crisis by the county.
Over 300 lawsuits which have been prosecuted for litigation by medicines included in the settlement negotiations ordered by the Federal Judge in Cleveland have been banned.
In the study, Written Writer Erin Krebs and his colleagues were randomly assigned to 240 patients with chronic back pain, or hip or knee arthritis, in the Minneapolis Veterans Affairs Health Care System, including opiate painkillers such as morphine and oxycodone or nonpoid medicines.

After one year, about 60 percent of patients in each group experienced significant improvement in the ability to do daily work without interfering with pain.
But compared to 54 percent in the nonprofit group, only 41 percent of patients in the opioid group have improved significantly in the intensity of pain, Krebs said, a primary care physician and patients of Minneapolis VA, taking opioids, reported that double side effects Is facing.
If any study should be biased in favor of opioid, the researchers said, because patients knew what medicines they were getting, and in many studies believed that opioids were better.
The result will be “amazing for a lot of people,” Krebs said.
“Opioids have this reputation as a powerful painkiller and I do not think it is deserving of at least the old pain.”
While opioids provide powerful relief for acute pain, which does not necessarily translate into the condition of an old pain, where pain often gets separated from the original injury
Regulatory approval for the sale of long term studies is not necessary, and there is no incentive to the drug producers.
2016 CDC’s chronic pain guidelines, co-authored by Oogron University Institute, Chou, found that the most controlled study of oxyozoos lasted less than six weeks.
The government agency concluded that there was “inadequate evidence” for their long-term benefits, but there are lots of evidence for the loss
Gary Franklin, a neurologist and business health researcher at the University of Washington, said, “This is the first random trial that shows you that opioids are not needed for the status of these common chronic pain, these medicines are very good” Use “for this reason that it is very important.”
