Several things: The longer you take opioids there is a greater chance to develop a condition called hyperalgesia. You can also develop hormone imbalances and osteoporosis. The Acetaminophen in it can cause some liver problems over time as well. There always a risk for abuse and addiction. Discuss these risks with your physician.
