What is the Patient Counseling DocumentThe Patient Counseling Document (PCD) on Extended-Release/Long Acting (ER/LA) Opioid Analgesics is a tool unique to this REMS designed to facilitate important discussions with your patients for whom you select an ER/LA opioid analgesic. The PCD should be provided to and reviewed with the patient and/or their caregiver at the time of prescribing. It contains important safety information about the drug products subject to this REMS and includes space for you to write additional information to help your patients use their ER/LA opioid analgesic safely.
