Abstract

Pain is a common complaint of the elderly and the prevalence of persistent discomfort increases with aging. Suffering may be underreported as some elderly patients incorrectly believe that pain is a normal process of aging. The aim of this study is to assess the analgesic effectiveness and tolerability of tapentadol in elderly patients with assessment of cognitivebehavioral aspects. During treatment with tapentadol, elderly patients experienced reduced pain intensity and improved physical and mental health.
