Common side effects include constipation, ..., 6 Sept 2015 [cached]
Common side effects include constipation, weight gain, dry mouth, nausea, lower testosterone, impotence and depression, said Dr. Teresa Bartlett, Troy, Michigan-based senior vice president and medical director of Sedgwick Claims Management Services Inc.
Sometimes patients will see that list and say, "No thanks, I'd rather tough this out for a little while than experience some of these side effects," she said.
Workers comp sometimes also pays for prescriptions for Viagra and Cialis, which treat erectile dysfunction often caused by opioids, Dr. Bartlett said.
"Why not lower the dose and get (an injured worker) off the opioid rather than add three or four more drugs to treat the symptoms that the opioid caused? Dr. Bartlett said. "It's maddening and it's sad."
For one opioid, Actiq, adjunct therapies can mean dental work, Dr. Bartlett said.
Actiq, which contains the Schedule II controlled substance fentanyl, is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to manage breakthrough pain in cancer patients, but is often prescribed to injured workers.
Taking the form of a lollipop, Actiq can cause dental issues, Dr. Bartlett said.
The lollipop was "really designed for end-of-life care for people who are maybe a week to a month away from dying," she added.

Memphis, Tenn., February 17, 2009 - Sedgwick Claims Management Services, Inc. (Sedgwick CMS), North America's largest independent provider of claims and productivity management services, today announced the recent appointment of Teresa Bartlett, M.D. as senior vice president and medical director.
As medical director for Sedgwick CMS, Dr. Bartlett will be the firm's senior advisor in matters affecting the design and delivery of medical management services for the company's claims clients. She will provide strategic counsel and operational support in all areas of medical management including managed care, return-to-work, bill review, medical outcomes protocols, and health and safety matters. Dr. Bartlett will also advise and represent Sedgwick CMS in efforts to integrate the delivery of occupational and non-occupational medical services and in public policy matters affecting healthcare as part of the claims services process.
Dr. Bartlett joined Sedgwick CMS from Chrysler LLC, where she was the senior manager responsible for integrated health care and disability medical programs. During her twenty-year career with Chrysler she managed their multi-state workers' compensation and disability programs, as well as Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) programs for the company's Canadian operations. She also led their development of evidence-based medical substantiation procedures that improved care for workers and assured value for company expenditures on medical services.
The American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine awarded a team directed by Dr. Bartlett it's 2005 Corporate Health Achievement Award for the development and implementation of a best practice clinical model. In 2008 she received the Health Care Hero Award from Crain's Detroit Business for workplace back pain mitigation initiatives. Dr. Bartlett is a past member of the steering committee of the Michigan Primary Care Consortium. A graduate of the School of Medicine of the Technological University of Santiago, DR, she completed clinical internships in the Yale Affiliated Hospitals Program of the Yale School of Medicine.
"Throughout her medical career Teresa Bartlett has demonstrated practical leadership in making the health of workers the foundation of effective workers' compensation and disability programs," said David A. North, president and chief executive officer of Sedgwick CMS.

Aside from workers comp, more employers in general are embracing telemedicine as the care and cost benefits associated with it become more evident, said Dr. Teresa Bartlett, Troy, Michigan-based senior vice president of medical quality and corporate medical director at Sedgwick Claims Management Services Inc.
The benefits include keeping injured workers out of emergency rooms, reducing or eliminating wait times for workers who need to see specialists, and improving their return-to-work rates, she said.
In many cases, telemedicine exams take place at a worksite or a central location where "pieces of equipment that look something like an iPad" are set up in booths for privacy, Dr. Bartlett said. "You push a button, and there's a doctor that appears on the screen and they can see you."
Exams such as blood sugar levels, EKGs, pulmonary function and hearing tests can be performed and the information relayed to physicians in real time, she said.
Many physicians are also fans, Dr. Bartlett said.
"Physicians have told me they feel it's a higher quality healthcare experience because they're really focused on all aspects of the patient" even though the physician payment remains the same, Dr. Bartlett said.
"It's just providing a convenience to a patient," she said.
This is one reason TPAs such as Sedgwick work with clients to implement the technology through companies, including Concentra Inc. or Kaiser Permanente, that make telemedicine accessible on worksites or at a number of central locations, Dr. Bartlett said.
"It's still relatively new to the employers out there," she said, "even though there's a lot of buzz about it and it's being used widely in healthcare.
