Boster's Corner video: Why I don’t use narcotics in my Multiple Sclerosis practice

Published on Dec 23, 2017

Dr. B has never prescribed narcotics. In this video he explained his personal opinions on why he chooses not to use narcotics in his multiple sclerosis practice. There are many different types of chronic neuropathic pain that can occur in the setting of multiple sclerosis. We believe that using narcotics to treat these pains is not the right decision. Dr. B provides two reasons: One is the national opioid crisis. The other reason relates to the biologic mechanisms of narcotics and some of the long term problems that can arise when using narcotics to treat chronic neuropathic pain.
