What are some therapeutic effects of opioids?

Answer:

Pain relief is the primary therapeutic effect of opioid analgesics.

Acting at spinal and brain μ receptors, opioids attenuate nociceptive traffic from the periphery and alter central affective pain sensation. Additionally in the operative setting, opioid effects of drowsiness, decreased airway irritability, and attenuation of the cough reflex are considered therapeutic benefits.
