Maybe?: The use of opioids to control chronic nonmalignant pain is a complex and somewhat controversial issue. Pain conditions differ with respect to their sensitivity to opioids. Most of the debate about the role of opioids in chronic pain management is based upon both the safety and efficacy of these drugs and the potential for abuse. Also dependence and addiction.
