Increase in New Approvals of Strong Opioid Medications in Switzerland Abstract. Consumption of pain medication, especially opioids, has risen sharply since 2000, both worldwide and in Switzerland. However, it is unknown whether this increased use is associated with an increase in new approvals of pain medications. An analysis of new approvals of painkillers in Switzerland showed a significant increase from the year 2000 onwards. The majority of new registrations were strong opioid preparations, while the trend in new registrations of non-opioid painkillers was decreasing. Furthermore, the treatment duration of newly approved strong opioids increased significantly from the year 2000 onwards, which may lead to a higher risk of overdoses or dependence.
