Opioids – Reducing body pain but increasing pain

Opioids are drugs primarily prescribed for pain management and treatment of diarrhea and cough. Opioid drugs are of two types namely, agonist and antagonist. Codeine, Fentanyl, Meperidine, Methadone, Morphine, Hydrocodone, Diphenoxylate, Hydromorphone, Methylphenidate, Oxycodone, and Oxymorphone are classified as agonists, while Buprenorphine, Naloxone, Naltrexone, Methylnaltrexone, and Nalbuphine are classified as antagonists. Due to easy availability of opioids, these drugs are rampantly overused globally and the situation is more critical in developed countries, mainly the U.S. This has led to government or regulatory intervention in various countries. Government and regulatory bodies are involved in closely monitoring prescription patterns or in publishing strict prescription guidelines for opioids and in educating the public about its side effects or harmful effects, such as dependence on the drug on regular use. Government bodies have also directed drug-stores such as CVS health to limit opioids delivery and inform the government about the steps they are or planning to undertake to address this crisis.

The prescription of opioids drug has increases rapidly in last two decades across the globe, however, the rate of change is much higher in U.S. These prescriptions are not only for treating chronic pain and other related conditions, but majority of these prescriptions are for patients who are addicted to this drug. According to World Drug Report 2017, 29.5 million people suffered from drug use disorders globally, in 2015. About 70% of this 29.5 million people were on opioids, according to the same report. In U.S. alone, the drug overuse killed 59,000 to 65,000 people in 2016, and about two-thirds were due to opioids overuse only.

Cannabis as potential alternative for pain relief

Cannabis has recently gained attention from a diverse range of people, including medical professionals, independent health advocacy groups, and government organizations. Cannabis is projected to emerge as a potential alternative therapy to opioids, as it controls nausea associated with intake of opioid drugs, as well as vomiting and dizziness that often accompany severe, prolonged pain. Moreover, risk of addiction associated with cannabis intake is much lower as compared to that of opioids. A poll conducted by the New England Journal of Medicine, in 2013, found that 75% (3 out of 4) clinicians in the U.S. recommended the use of cannabis for hypothetical cancer patients. Currently, medical marijuana is legal in 28 states and the District of Columbia, even though it is illegal under federal law. According to a research published, in 2017, in Annals of Internal Medicine, cannabis, which is also called medical marijuana, is used for pain management for 45-85% cases. However, the same research argues that there is little evidence to show that cannabis helps control chronic pain. Hence, an urgent need is experienced for high-quality clinical trials to test the clinical efficacy of marijuana in pain management. If clinical trials prove marijuana effective beyond a reasonable doubt, it is expected to emerge as a replacement for opioids.

Some of the major players operating in the global opioids market are Purdue Pharma, Titan Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Boehringer Ingelheim GmbH, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Sanofi S.A., Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, Egalet Corporation, Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc., Allergan, Plc, and Pfizer Inc.
