Opioid medications are derived from the opium poppy plant or made synthetically. These medications, which are strong and used to relieve chronic pain as a short-term option, weaken pain signals to the brain but create several serious side effects, such as:

  • Breathing problems
  • Sleepiness
  • Constipation
  • Dry mouth
  • Sleep apnea

Patients taking these medications also may develop a dependence on the medication and accidentally overdose. Common full and partial opioids include:

  • Fentanyl
  • Hydrocodone
  • Methadone
  • Morphine
  • Oxycodone
  • Tapentadol
  • Codeine
  • Tramadol
  • Buprenorphine

Prescription opioids can help manage moderate to severe pain, including cancer-related pain, post-surgical pain, and vascular pain. Meet with our pain care specialists at Pain Zero to discuss safe and effective ways to manage your pain.

Many opioids come in pill form or may be administered intravenously or through a pump. In seldom cases, they also can be taken as lozenges, lollipops, or skin patches. These medications can be used as an effective, customized pain management plan under a physician's supervision.

The most common indication for opioid management is cancer-related pain. Non-cancer pain management typically does not involve opioid medication as a long-term solution to managing chronic pain.
