Description

As opioid prescribing has increased over the past two decades, the United States healthcare system has also seen rising rates of overdoses and addiction treatment resulting from misuse and abuse of these drugs. “Experts have called for more selective use of opioids, but clinicians are often left wondering how long and how high a dose of opioids can be prescribed before inadvertently promoting long-term use,” says Richard A. Deyo, MD, MPH. Greater attention is needed regarding the characteristics of initial and early opioid prescriptions and their association with long-term use.

Objectives

Objective: Describe the findings of a retrospective data analysis that examined the link between initial opioid prescribing patterns and the likelihood of subsequent long-term use.
