Abstract

Opioids provide some modest pain relief for patients with rheumatoid arthritis, but prescription of these drugs is influenced by their association with risks for the individual and for society. Is denial of a treatment, even if that treatment is imperfect, justified when patients experience considerable pain and other treatment options are limited?
