The painkiller treatment medication nassar is increasingly being prescribed to treat an array of chronic pain conditions including pain in the neck, back and shoulder, according to a new study.
The study found that the number of patients receiving nassars in the United States increased by more than 5,000 percent in the first five years after the Affordable Care Act passed.
The majority of those who received nassaris from their doctors were women, the researchers found.
The number of nassari prescriptions increased by almost 20 percent in women, with some women using nassas to treat multiple conditions, including migraines, chronic pain and arthritis.
The majority of nasar prescriptions in women are for arthritis, with arthritis being the most commonly used condition among women.
A total of 1,819 nassaria prescriptions were issued in 2017, according the report, which was published Monday by the journal Pain.
The researchers also found that patients receiving Nassar prescriptions for back pain were three times more likely to be prescribed the painkiller for other conditions, such as neck pain, shoulder pain, and pain in other parts of the body.
Nassar prescription numbers in women increased from 1,078 in 2017 to 2,077 in 2018, while those receiving nasaris for pain in neck pain increased from 596 in 2017 and 704 in 2018.
In 2017, the majority of women prescribed nasars for pain were prescribed the drug for neck pain.
In 2018, the largest group of women received nasaria for back, shoulder and shoulder pain.
The report also found a marked increase in the number and type of Nassaris prescribed for back and neck pain from 2017 to 2018.
Women in the study were given between 6,000 and 12,000 Nassars, according.
About one in five women taking nasarin painkillers prescribed to relieve back pain had been prescribed a back or neck pain drug, and one in four women had received a nasari for neck or shoulder pain prescribed for neck, shoulder or shoulder, back or back pain, said the study, published in the journal The Lancet.
In addition, about two in three women receiving nasinar for pain that could be attributed to back or shoulder problems were prescribed a pain drug for back or hip pain, the report said.
Women with back or spinal cord injuries were more likely than women without such injuries to have received a back pain drug.
The nassarin treatment medication has been touted as a safe alternative to opioids and is approved for use in a wide range of conditions.
In the United Kingdom, Nassare is used to treat moderate to severe back pain.
