Medications

Most pain Medications, especially opiods (Medications like Morphine), produce a phenomenon known as tolerance. This means that a patient becomes resistant to the action of the medication when given in high dosages. We provide our patients with optimal pain management while using the minimum amount of medications. Our office educates patients concerning the dosage of medications given and we strive to have our patients reach a manageable pain level to resume daily functions and have an enjoyable quality of life.

Prescription Drug Abuse

Abuse of prescription drugs has become a more serious problem than most street drugs. Even though painkillers, tranquilizers, sleeping pills and stimulants may appear "safe" due to being prescribed by a physician, they have a very high potential for misuse and addiction. The combination and use of high dose of some of this medications can be lethal if not used properly, and specially when combined with alcohol. Any patient taking this medications longer than a couple of months becomes dependent. What that means is that any time the patient tries to stop taking these medications has withdraws (Feels sick). In the case of most pain killers that means having increased pain, diarrhea, chills, sweating, severe flu like symptoms, tachycardia,etc. In the case of the tranquilizers patients feel panic attacks, anxiety, and sometimes hallucinations and even seizures. Even though every treatment should be individualized, most patients do better on low dose schedule than on high dose schedule for pain killers, and most patients do better without tranquilizers (or with very sporadic use), than with them. In most cases those medications need to be decrease slowly to avoid withdraws, and increase use of the medications to treat the symptoms produced by the quick decrease of the same medications on the blood stream.
 
Suboxone is one of the best options to discontinue the use of opiods (Pain Killers). Should be used if you are not able to control the use of your medications, when opiods are not indicated to control your pain, or your pain has been controlled by other means.

Most tranquilizers are more harmful than helpful when used for continuous long term use, but every case should be considered individually.
