Does this patient taking prescription opioids have opioid use disorder?

Incidence of OUD associated with prescribed opioids in chronic pain patients is likely about 3% (over 2 years) but causation is uncertain. Patients with no history of substance use disorder (SUD) appear to be at lower risk (< 1%). Factors associated with increased risk include history of SUD and receiving opioids for longer (> 90 days) or at higher doses (> 120 mg/d morphine equivalent [ME]).
