Pain killers for chronic pain Unsafe? Why Doctors are referring to alternative therapies ínstead.
You may have seen in the news that the NHS are unsure if prescribing painkillers for chronic pain is the best practice. Doctors soon will be recommending alternative therapies to combat this.
Painkillers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen can do 'more harm than good' and should not be prescribed to treat chronic pain, health officials have said. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence claims that there is 'little or no evidence' the drugs, as well as aspirin and opioids, work.
