Without question, ANY healthcare provider should utilize non-addictive medicine to address acute pain, before even considering their use. There is no doubt our country suffers because of opioid abuse. It is incredulous to me, that the problem is made even worse by the manufacturing and use of synthetic opioids. Furthermore, it is diabolical that pharmaceutical companies create these synthetic opioids, then sell them for a large profit, to those that are already suffering with acute pain. This has got to change!
