Abstract

This cross-sectional survey of 720 women found that 85% filled an opioid prescription after cesarean delivery, and the median number of tablets dispensed was 40. The median number of tablets consumed was only 20 tablets and the number dispensed did not correlate with patient satisfaction, pain control, or the need for a refill.
