Mark Wallace, University of California San Diego:  “There was a study in the late 1990s (see attached slides below on earlier studies on effects of opioids and driving) that looked at cancer patients on >200 mg/day oral morphine equivalent with controlled pain, and compared them to matched cancer patients not on opioids with uncontrolled pain. Study participants performed driving tests, and the ones not on opioids with uncontrolled pain performed worse.
