your life back. Talk to your doctor about ways to manage your pain that don’t involve prescription opioids, such as:
• Non-opioid pain relievers, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol®), ibuprofen (Advil®),
• or naproxen (Aleve®)
• Physical therapy and exercise
• Cognitive behavioral therapy
• Certain antidepressants and anticonvulsants
