Opioids for Back Pain

Amir Mahajer, Interventional Spine Specialist at Baptist Health Neuroscience Center, says opioids have been and epidemic, especially combined with benzos.
He points out those chronic opioids are not the best solution for any kind of chronic musculoskeletal pain and can cause your pituitary gland, your endocrine system, and your hormones to be irreversibly effective. This can affect mood, for example.
Other medications, like Tylenol, are benign, meaning they do not have side effects, but they will if you take them every day.
