Since pain considerably affects day to day life, its management offers considerable challenge for physicians. Inadequate pain control remains a major problem across the world. Pain relief medications are dominated by NSAIDs followed by opioids. Long acting opioids are used in the relief of moderate to severe pain which require treatment for several days. Oral Long Acting Opioids (LAOs) are also an option to treat acute pain in non-dependant patients. Opioids are prescribed when pain cannot be adequately controlled with an NSAID. All NSAIDs/Cox-2 inhibitors have cardiovascular and renal side-effects, and the older NSAIDs have severe gastrointestinal ones too. Therefore in cases of acute and chronic opioids continue to be the mainstay of therapy. However, this market is struggling to generate sales growth against a background of weak pipelines and generic competition.

In order to ensure that the benefits of the drugs outweigh the risks of use in patients, the FDA had notified opioid drug manufacturers to have REMS.
