  • TO THE EDITOR: Careful gastroenterologists are fully aware of the risks of narcotic usage in patients with inflammatory bowel disease. We therefore read with interest the article by Cross et al. (1), which suggests that narcotic use may be an indicator of severity in Crohn's disease. The authors in addition suggest that the data support the need to better characterize chronic pain in Crohn's disease.
