Researchers Coming Closer To Developing Non-Addictive Medications To Relieve Severe, Chronic Pain

USA Today (11/18) reports that researchers are “closing in on creating medicines that could relieve severe, chronic pain without getting people hooked – raising hopes as well as skepticism among those fighting drug abuse.” One company, “Cara Therapeutics, recently released research showing its opioid medication,” currently known as CR845, “is far less likely to cause patients to feel high than a control medicine considered to have a low potential for abuse.”
