  • Post Car-Crash Pain: Opioids or Ibuprofen – Which Pain Reliever Is Better?

    July 14, 2018

    When car accidents occur, they can result in a variety of injuries. Whatever their nature and extent, they cause disruption in the lives of not just injured victims, but also in their families. Loss of income/wages, medical and rehabilitation expenses and pain and suffering are some of the consequences that victims and families have to bear.

    Common injuries include: head, brain, neck and back injuries, burns, wounds, cuts and laceration, soft tissue injuries, fractures and broken bones, internal organ damage, amputation, loss of function, disfigurement and even death.

    Emergency room physicians prescribe painkillers to injured victims immediately to relieve them of the pain. However, in many cases, pains persist long after the accident has occurred. This persistent pain has to be treated with various drugs and therapies. Drugs include opioids and NSAIDs (non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs) and in a recent study, researches have compared the two types for risk of persistent pain. Opioids are highly addictive and doctors tend to be conservative in prescribing them.

    Researchers found that the risk of persistent pain remains the same regardless of the type of drug taken. However if opioids were taken initially, the risk of the pain remaining after 6 weeks was higher and patients were found to be still taking them. Hence, it’s important to prescribe these drugs only for those patients who really need them.

    Our experienced personal injury lawyers can ensure that you get the best and most appropriate medical treatment while we help you get the compensation you deserve.
