Pain Management

In brief: Yes, it does

For many years, opioids have been the mainstay of drug treatment to control chronic cancer pain.
Their efficacy in acute pain such as postoperative pain is also well established. 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. Hope it helps.
