Opioid Pain Management, FDA Regulations and Requirements for Good Clinical Practice
Opioid painkillers are an important component of pain management. However, opiates are also highly likely to be abused by patients and lead to addiction. Opiate overdose kills almost twice as many people every year than heroin overdose. According to FDA and CDC it is important that doctors, pharmacists and manufacturers take special measures to control opioid abuse by their patients. Both Agencies have released new guidelines to suggest best practices for labeling of opioid drugs, prescribing such drugs to patients and increasing the use of non-opioid pain management tools. These new guidelines are effective as of March 2016. It is important for the industry and prescribers to accurately understand these new rules and regulations governing controlled substances used in pain management so that compliance can be adequately achieved.
