Medication Monitoring with Urine Drug Testing in Pain Management

Supporting comprehensive pain management
Pain management is complex. Identifying safe and effective treatment options for patients is critical for clinicians utilizing pharmacotherapy to help manage pain. Medication monitoring with Millennium UDTSM paired with clinical expertise can provide critical information about medication and substance use and can help clinicians:

  • Monitor and support decisions about medication therapy, particularly controlled substances
  • Identify recent use of prescription medications, non-prescribed medications and illicit substances
  • Detect medications that may result in a drug-drug interaction
  • Advocate for and communicate with patients about individual treatment plans
  • Identify possible illicit drug or medication abuse, misuse or diversion

Clinical guidelines suggest drug testing is critical to safe and effective pain management
