Chronic Pain

The analgesic effects of tramadol (Ultram), 1 of the 5 most often prescribed opioids in the world, may be sex-dependent, according to a study presented at the 2015 American Academy of Pain Medicine annual meeting.
Until recently, the selection of patients for aggressive pain control therapy, including high-dose opioids and implanted delivery systems, has mostly been done on a subjective basis.
In the treatment of chronic nonmalignant pain, patient-specific factors, especially household income, more accurately predicted quality-of-life outcomes than opioid use, according to a study presented at the 2015 American Academy of Neurology annual meeting.
