Area Pain Medical Associates provides the information as a guideline for physicians
interested in up to date knowledge about the treatment of pain in their patients.
We provide this as a public service without endorsing any specific treatment.
Much of the medication used in managing pain is for "off label" use.
Physicians using these medication are responsible for researching their efficacy,
side effects, therapeutic benefits, interactions, titration and cessation, before
deciding whether to use them in their practice. While we have provided information
on these subjects, we do not feel this should serve as a substitute for looking
up medications in standard texts and resources. When medications are left out
of dosing, titration, drug interaction and side effect categories, it is because
we do not think they should be used by anyone except for pain specialists.
