Pain Medication...Mistaken Ideas & Fear
Clinical evidence suggests that although medicines are available for all kinds of pain, people are afraid to take them. Evidently, people have mistaken ideas and fear about pain medicines keeping them from taking narcotic or even all natural pain relief products that can effectively improve their quality of life.
OxyContin and other commonly used pain relief narcotics (listed in ascending order of potency strength) as Codeine, Propoxyphene, and Hydrocodone, can all be safe and effective pain medications when properly used as directed, however, these and most narcotic pain relievers are amenable to being a “drug of abuse,” according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA recommends when taking a pain relief medication, not to increase nor decrease its dosage without talking to a doctor; not breaking or crushing pills; protecting medication from being stolen; never sharing medicine with others; and throwing away leftover pills after a doctor takes a patient off the prescribed medicine.
NCCAM Director, Dr. Josephine Briggs says a new survey provides the most current, comprehensive and reliable source of information on Americans’ use of unconventional remedies such as medicinal herbs (Menastil and Tramaden), acupuncture, yoga, meditation, massage and chiropractic or osteopathic manipulation as replacement for pain relief drug therapies.
The Mayo clinic reports that pain as experienced is part biology, but it’s also influenced by psychological and cultural factors leading to a tendency for people to endure pain without medication. Evidence suggests that people resist telling a doctor about their pain because they feel it is just part of life they must live with preventing them from getting pain relief through a doctor.
The keys to pain relief are taking pain medication without fear; reporting the level of pain being experienced to a qualified doctor; reporting the extent of and level of pain truthfully; taking the dosage as prescribed under a doctor’s care; and reporting any unusual side effects to a doctor.
