How to Take the Pain Out of Weaning Painkillers

As pressure to cut back on prescription opioids continues to mount, doctors and patients are feeling the heat. If you have been on long-term opioid therapy and are now being asked to switch to a different pain management method, you may feel concerned and fearful about weaning off opioids.

To better understand why coming off opioids can be such a challenge, consider how our bodies handle opioids. We each have a naturally occurring internal opioid system that not only regulates pain, but also impacts our social interaction, cardiovascular health, metabolism, stress, learning, mood, respiration, digestion, immune function, sexual activity, and reward and addiction. In other words, just about everything that goes on in the body can be impacted by our internal opioid system to some degree. So, when we consider replacing our natural coping mechanisms for things like stress, social bonding, and reward-gratification with prescription painkillers, we start to get a sense of why pulling them away can be such a challenge. On top of dealing with concerns about how to manage the pain, there is also the struggle to regain equilibrium in managing basic life functions.
