Primary Care Physicians manage a wide variety of complex patient medical conditions. Often times, particularly in rural parts of the country, patients don’t have easy access to Pain Management physicians to manage and deal with their pain issues. It is not uncommon for primary care physicians to manage patients with both acute pain and chronic pain. Establishing a pretreatment baseline with a comprehensive definitive toxicology test can provide critical treatment information when dealing with pain patients. Poly-pharmacy is the largest contributor to drug related deaths with opioids, benzodiazepines, and antidepressants, either alone or in combination, are associated with causing the majority of these deaths.
For primary care physicians who prescribe Controlled Prescription Drugs (CPDs) like opioids, benzodiazepines, amphetamines, stimulants, muscle relaxers, and sleep aids; the need for definitive toxicology testing is great. Toxicology testing can provide physicians with increased evidence of medication compliance while reducing the risk of diversion and decreasing risk of addiction for others who may obtain these drugs illegally.
