Why are doctors so against prescribing opioid pain meds?

I'm concerned . I have read quite a few of your posts and i don't think you understand the limits of opioids. That's natural, we call them painkillers. I know 5 truths about opioids. 1, they take the edge off 2, they're better than nothing 3, sometimes they work ok 4, sometimes you wonder why you bother taking them 5 if you want to know how well they work, stop them for a few days. My patients taught me this.
Complicated. Addiction potential, overuse potential, sidwe effect profile, mis-use potential. Illicit use potential. Illegal sale potential. Federally regulated and controlled. They do have their role, but must be monitored for all of the above.
