The OIH Paradox: Can Opioids Make Pain Worse? – Source: Pain Treatment Topics, Aug 20, 2008

  [ 10 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Peggy Compton, RN, PhD • www.ProHealth.com • September 5, 2008


[Note: a full-text pdf of this 12-page article, including a glossary of pain terminology, a guide to differentiating this condition from others, and strategies for minimizing the risk, is available free at http://pain-topics.org/clinical_concepts/comments.php ]

 

Healthcare providers are becoming increasingly aware that ongoing opioid therapy for chronic pain might paradoxically worsen the pain in some patients – a condition called Opioid-Induced Hyperalgesia or OIH.

According to Peggy Compton, RN, PhD, author of this evidence-based review, present indications are that OIH does not arise in the majority of patients taking opioid analgesics, but when it does occur it can be difficult to manage.
