We know that pain is huge financial burden on the Irish Health Service and more needs to be done, both to improve the lives of people affected by chronic pain, and to work towards more effective management of the many different types of pain.
Pain is one of the most significant healthcare problems the world faces today. It impacts hundreds of millions of people across the world, profoundly affecting their quality of life and costing society countless billions of pounds in treatment along with lost productivity.
Pain can be challenging to live with but new treatments over the past 20 years have considerably improved the quality of life of people with pain management issues. Teva offers a comprehensive range of pain management solutions that help healthcare professionals to respond effectively to the individual requirements of each patient.
While prescription pain medications are an important component of pain management, the reality is these products are prone to abuse and misuse. We are commited to advancing responsible pain management that meets the needs of healthcare professionals and people affected by pain.

Applying expertise, innovation and technology to improve health
Making progress on pain management options is urgently needed. We are developing a focused pipeline of new drugs and novel treatments to meet patient and societal needs in pain management.
Our global research and development group is developing a focused portfolio of solutions that looks across the spectrum of pain states, including chronic nociceptive pain, cancer pain, and chronic neuropathic pain.
Exploring socially responsible pain treatments
We are addressing some of the key challenges associated with opioid-based treatments. Our global research and development team are focusing on abuse deterrent formulations and developing treatment options using our proprietary CIMA technology which is based on a multi-layer gel-forming polymer coating that regulates drug release.
Abuse-deterrent treatments provide options for prescribers that may help deter or mitigate abuse while still preserving access to pain medications for the patients that need them most.
We are dedicated to supporting our patients and healthcare professionals
Our work with patients, and our experience in this therapy area, means we are well placed to invest in extensive research into potential cures and medicines to help improve pain management, to offer patients and healthcare professionals a wider choice of treatments.
