Abstract: Opiate and opioid analgesics are commonly used for pain in general and presumably for headache. Codeine, oxycodone and propoxyphene, among the most commonly prescribed, do carry some risk of abuse, and their efficacy in headache patients has not been well studied. In many patients with other kinds of pain, however, both of neoplastic and non-neoplastic origin, chronic opiate use has been demonstrated to be of benefit without adverse side effects. The type of headache patient with intractable pain who needs frequent opiate analgesic and who does not develop addiction or drug abuse is an important subject for research.
