Targin is a narcotic drug and is addictive
Compating to oxyco nti e has kess co stipation effects but long term not the safest chlice
I my practuce I use non opioids such as lyrica ,cold laser ,panadol soteo+_ anti inflammatories if safe,accupucture hypnosis hydrotherapy massage and ohysio and local nerve root or facet joint injection so I could taper that high dose of targin down !
