After taking opioids for just 5 days in a row, a person becomes more likely to take them long-term.

.

Opioids provide an average of 20 - 30% pain relief when used for pain lasting less than three months. Options that do not involve opioids may provide enough pain relief.

.

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), like ibuprofen and naproxen, work just as well as opioids (and sometimes better) for kidney stone pain.

.

Naproxen taken alone relieves acute low back pain and improves function just as well as when it is combined with an opioid or muscle relaxer.

.

After a minor fracture, NSAIDs, like ibprofen and naproxen, provide adequate pain relief and allow bones to heal, without the risks and side effects of opioids.
