Number of GP patients co-prescribed gabapentinoids and opioids triples

Comment

Medical establishment for most of last 15 years: "prescribe gabapentin for chronic pain its much better than opioids and not addictive" Medical establishment in last couple of years "don't prescribe gabapentin its addictive and gets abused" Patients to GPs "take responsibility for all my symptoms there must be a pill for it and not at all related to my lifestyle or lack of engagement in physical/psychological therapy that I refuse to consider"
