Government medicine regulator launches major opioids review to cut prescribing


I often struggle for months to contain or reduce opiate or gabapentinoid usage in patients, only to refer them to pain clinic and have them return on massive doses of the same - presumably because its the easiest thing to do to get them out of clinic quickly, and with no responsibility for ongoing care.
