PMID: 36153081.


Pharmacologic management of chronic pain is one component of a patient-centered care plan. Multiple classes of medications are available and can be used individually or in combination. Choice of medication is determined by the type and cause of pain, safety profile of the medication, patient values and preferences, comorbid conditions, cost, and availability. Incorporating shared decision making is critical when implementing a pharmacologic pain management regimen.
