Current Research and Scholarly Interests Opioids are considered generally not effective for the treatment of FM; however, they are still prescribed to up to an estimated 40% of this patient population. It is currently unknown whether opioids cause negative effects on CNS function, brain reward systems, and long-term clinical outcomes in individuals with FM. I aim to determine how opioids impact pain, reward behavior, and brain function in FM and to create informed protocols for prescribing opioids to individuals with FM.
