13/For those eager to make one number go down and not interested in evidence-based patient protection ignore the last 12 tweets. But for the rest, let’s recognize a need for moral & tangible support to protect patients who have long-term pain, who are on opioids.
8/This is either the 3rd study of 2019 to signal real-world reasons for concern about opioid stoppage as it typically occurs in practice, even though the case is compelling to me that expertly-conducted taper will, for some patients, prove quite helpful https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28715848
4/This was a sick, vulnerable patient group. 21% (119 of 572) of patients died during follow-up, 4% of overdose. Overdose death was 3-fold higher for discontinued patients (4.9% of the discontinued, 1.8% of the not-discontinued). All 17 ODs had a provider-initiated stoppage.
3/Of 572 opioid patients, 60.1% discontinued. Among reasons for stopping, more were provider-initiated & common reasons were: unexpected urine tox results, missed appointments, diagnosed substance use or mental health disorder & others. Things that do worry us about safety!
