I think Dr. Barker is my most favorite guest so far. Really appreciate the reinforcement of not prescribing opiates in a cavalier fashion and also loved the extra pearls on non-opiate supportive meds. I'll be switching from flexeril to zanaflex. Thanks!

Mizuho M., DO -

Thanks! Agree, she is awesome and excellent at what she does! I'll certainly let her know!

Thanks, this was really helpful. I especially liked the rationale for why to use an opiate drip rather than a push and will be changing my practice accordingly. I also appreciate the information regarding the muscle relaxants and will stop using Flexeril which is what is in our Pyxis. The Nortriptyline suggestion is also one I don't think of enough. Thank you!

Mizuho M., DO -

Thanks for the feedback! I'll let Dr.Barker know!
