That's the main reason why DH wants no part of opiates for his back pain. Well that and the fear of addiction. I once suggested that if he went the opiate route, I would monitor him and keep the meds with me and dole them out as indicated by the scrip, but he still said no because constipation.
I still can't believe he's more worried about being backed up than drugged up. Thankfully the Neurontin works for him.
