The marketing done and the damage they can do is evil. If you have serious chronic pain, Tylenol and NSAIDS don't cut it and most people cannot afford to add therapeutic massage or acupuncture. These are excellent adjuncts to a pain management therapeutic approach, but not real-world. Opioids work but they are so easy to abuse. #Methadone and #buprenorphine also work, but they are hard to get and when you get them, they are also easy to abuse. And all three medications can kill you.
A #painmanagement regimen in 2022 could read:10AM - 20mg tablet of sativa THC2PM - 20mg oxycontin6PM - 20mg tablet of indica THC10PM – 20mg tablet oxycontin
#Lessopioids = better #qualityoflife and less #overdosedeaths.
