  1. Hey, my father got an opioid painkiller for a while after his back op and had no problem at all to get rid of it once the healing was completed and it was no longer painful.

    All those non opioid painkillers are terribly bad for the liver, if you take it in higher doses for a longer time you risk liver failure, kidney problems etc. Apart from the risk of addiction they are way less harmful to the body than those other painkillers.

    Doctors have to talk to their patients to see if they have a high risk for substance abuse or not because someone who does not enjoy being stoned/drunk/intoxicated will not get emotionally dependent on the numbing effect of these things. In fact, my father didn't like the fuzzy feeling the opioids gave him so why would he continue to take it longer than necessary.
