In the case of opioid analgesics, Dr. Edward Covington, director of the Neurological Center for Pain at the Cleveland Clinic, believes that short-term studies like this are inadequate. According to Dr. Covington, "It's clear that the short-term effects, on the basis for which they are approved and marketed, do not mirror their effects in long-term use. In the absence of long-term studies demonstrating safety and effectiveness, we need limits on what drug companies can claim about opioids. Covington also believes that suggested dose limits must be added to the label "given the lack of experimental support for using high doses."
"Over-prescribing of opioids is harming many chronic pain patients," Covington said.
