Does Gender effect pain medication response?

  1. Here is a link from Medscape. It also serves a CME credit for those interested.
    The course covers the finding of a double blind study which compared the differences in pain releif based on gender.

    Hope it helps!

    Point and case...
    My wife can handle a vaginal delivery w/no meds.

    I needed a gallon of MS04 when I had a kidney stone
