Researchers Recommend Some Better Ways to Use Pain Relief Drugs and Reduce Their Side Effects


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/08/2015 -- Arthritis patients suffer from pain and discomfort, and this is why scientists are working hard to determine the cause of pain and see how patients react to pain individually.

Researchers recommend some better ways to use pain relief drugs and reduce their side effects. They have been trying to develop better methods of treating the pain suffered by patients. They also explore new drugs, but they focus on the best ways to deliver them in order to lessen adverse effects.

Doris Cope, M.D., pain specialist at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, stated that research has two important areas. One is to understand the causes of pain and the other is to determine why patients have different reactions to treatments. According to Dr. Cope, they are trying to determine the specific mechanisms involved, what causes the pain to go on and how chronic pain can be avoided.

Pain, just like blood pressure and heart rate, is monitored as a vital sign in hospital settings. However, in outpatient settings, pain is often overlooked. This is according to the University of California's pain specialist, Eric Hsu, M.D.

"The importance of good communication between the patient and doctor should not be taken for granted. This good communication can potentially make arthritis pain treatable and something that patients should not have to live with every day," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

According to pain management specialists, there are drugs that demonstrated some promising developments for fighting chronic pain. These are Duloxetine, Buprenorphine and Pulsed radiofrequency.

Many sufferers rely on pain relief drugs hoping that they will be able to achieve some improvements in their overall condition. However, there are also quite a number of patients who have suffered from the life-threatening consequences of using such drugs. The side effects of certain pain relief drugs are encouraging more and more patients to use natural alternatives.

One of the most popular natural alternatives that is widely used as a pain relief option by many arthritis patients is called the curcumin supplement. Curcumin is a key ingredient of a medicinal spice called turmeric, and it is popularized by its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antioxidant properties.

Those who want to use curcumin supplements should make sure that they use curcumin supplements that have a black pepper extract known as BioPerine. This black pepper extract is believed to be capable of increasing absorption of nutrients, including curcumin, in the human body (
