BACKGROUND Morphine - the main pillar of nociceptive pain management - systemic use is associated with development of tolerance and dependence. Tolerance and dependence lay a heavy burden in clinical pain management settings. An added weight to this dilemma is that effective, safe, and tolerable solution to this problem is still beyond reach. Antidepressants were reported as possible alleviators of opioid tolerance and dependence. One of the increasingly used antidepressant in clinical practice… Expand

Drug repurposing for opioid use disorders: integration of computational prediction, clinical corroboration, and mechanism of action analyses
TLDR
An integrated drug repurposing strategy is presented that combines computational prediction, clinical corroboration using electronic health records (EHRs) of over 72.9 million patients and mechanisms of action analysis and identified five repurposed candidate drugs that might be of value for treating OUD patients, including those suffering from comorbid conditions.
