Pain : NationalPainFoundation.org: Pain in Older Adults
Posted by Chapster on Apr-18-2004 (1472 reads)

(NationalPainFoundation.org) - A recent article by Debra K. Weiner, MD describes ten myths that relate to the kinds of pain that older adults experience. Striking among these is the myth that "Older adults should not take opioids because of the potential for addiction." That this is a myth is borne out in our experiences in working with the elderly. This is an important article for laypersons who have an elderly loved one with symptoms of pain (or depression - a major symptom of pain).
