Medications/opioids:

 

Use of anti-inflammatory medication for a pronged time may harm a person. Similarly pain medications can lead to addiction and other side-effects that may be ignored by the patient because of severity and unpleasant effects of pain.  Suffering can be minimized through understanding of disorder/pathology and side-effects profile of medication.
