This will be a very tough year for a few of our patients who require our clinic’s maximum doses of pain medications for spine pain relief. Since our clinic always places SAFETY FIRST, we will continue gradually lowering our maximum opiate dosages for pain relief to be in compliance with the new CDC recommendations. Rest assured, by January 1, 2019 our clinic’s maximum prescribed dosage of opiates will be well below 90 milligram morphine equivalents in potency for the safety of all of our patients.
