 An opioid is any agent that binds to opioid receptors, found principally in the central nervous system and gastrointestinal tract. Opioids work to relieve pain in two ways. First, they attach to opioid receptors, which are specific proteins on the surface of cells in the brain, spinal cord and gastrointestinal tract. These drugs interfere and stop the transmission of pain messages to the brain. Second, they work in the brain to alter the sensation of pain. These drugs do not take the pain away, but they do reduce and alter the patient’s perception of the pain. An opioid is any agent that binds to opioid receptors, found principally in the central nervous system and gastrointestinal tract.
