Pain Management Policy


At Unity Medicine, the practice of Dr Eric Grasser and his staff, it is our policy not to prescribe narcotic pain killers.  This includes drugs which contain opioid or opiate chemicals, such as codeine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, morphine, or fentanyl, sold as brand names such as Tylenol #3, Lortab, Lorcet, Vicodin, Percocet, Demerol, or Oxycontin.  These medications have little evidence which show that they have long-term benefit, and do not treat the root cause of symptoms or disease.  Exceptions to this policy may be made in the case of conditions such as cancer, shingles, or acute injury. 

 Unity Medicine is happy to work with you to provide better alternatives to pain management. 

You will be required to sign that you agree to our Narcotic Pain Killer policy prior to your first visit with Dr. Grasser.
