Abstract

Patients in pain often fear medications prescribed or recommend to them by their clinicians. Fear of side effects can contribute greatly to medication non-adherence (noncompliance). Patients often have fears that exceed the potential problems with which their medications are associated. Questions and answers relating to the side effects and the risk of addiction associated with opioids are presented.
