Episode 387: Nerve-ous about opioids?

In episode 387, Mike and James go over the best available evidence for opioids in neuropathic pain. As with many pain treatments the evidence suggests there is some benefit and also some harm.  Overall, it seems a reasonable approach would be to only use opioids in patients with refractory pain after multiple therapeutic trials with other agents.
