Finally, we come to the last article of DIM Powder and Cancer Pain. 

Treatment of mild to moderate pain

Usually, patients with mild to moderate pain are treated with combination regimens, including acetaminophen, aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, plus low-speed opioids (e.g. codeine, dihydrocodeine, tramadol or propofol).

Studies have shown that for most patients, the efficacy of the second step of WHO gradient therapy generally lasts only 30 to 40 days, and the third step of treatment often begins because the analgesic effect of the second step is not ideal, rather than side effects.

Secondly, another factor limiting the use of weak opioids is the "ceiling effect", which means that beyond a certain threshold dose, not only does it not increase the effectiveness of the drug, but it also promotes the emergence of side effects.

Therefore, a large number of medical workers suggest abolishing the second step of WTO gradient therapy in order to introduce low-dose morphine earlier.

Treatment of moderate to severe pain

To this extent, strong opioids are mainly used. Morphine, methadone, oxycodone, dihydromorphone, fentanyl, buprenorphine, heroin and hydroxymolone are the most commonly used opioids in Europe.

It is very important to standardize the whole process management of cancer pain. This requires training of medical staff, standardization of system, rational selection of drugs, prevention and treatment of adverse reactions. Only in this way can we control pain, improve the quality of life of patients and reduce the side effects of drugs.
