Hoping to curb opioid epidemic, CDC issues new prescription guidelines
The guidelines, which are voluntary, urge primary-care clinicians — doctors, physician assistants and nurse practitioners — to offer patients alternative treatments for chronic pain, such as non-opioid painkillers like ibuprofen and physical therapy, to prescribe the lowest effective dosage possible to patients who do need opioid drugs, and monitor the patient carefully, because the drugs are highly addictive. The CDC also recommends limiting opioid prescriptions for patients suffering short-term, acute pain to three days or less in most conditions, and says that more than seven days’ worth of opioid drugs “will rarely be needed.”
