Furthermore, another open-label, randomized controlled trial demonstrated that the addition of oral ketorolac to regular morphine therapy showed an insignificant but better analgesic effect compared with morphine only (54). Another small, observational trial evaluating the efficacy of clonazepam as an adjuvant to opioids in cancer patients with neuropathic pain demonstrated that although the mean pain intensity decreased from three to one in five patients who completed the study protocol, another five patients dropped out because of worsening pain or drowsiness (77).
