One article on PainSci cites Comerci 2018: Opioids for Chronic Aches & Pains

PainSci notes on Comerci 2018:

A well-written editorial about the serious medical consequences of physicians choosing to “simplify their lives by discontinuing prescribing of opioid analgesics.” More and more patients are “forced to navigate their transition off prescribed opioids, often with little or no assistance or guidance, with the potential for disastrous results.” The authors believe that “the most important contributor to a desire to stop prescribing opioids is the effect of opioid prescribing on clinicians’ emotional well-being.”
