CARSON CITY — The state medical board has launched a new website designed to help Nevadans understand the impacts of using opioid-based medications.

The knowyourpainmeds.com website created by the state Board of Medical Examiners will also serve as a portal for consumers to file a complaint if they feel their medical provider is not acting appropriately related to the prescribing of medications.
