Formulary Management: Effects of Standardized Vs Non-Standardized
Providers, by nature, are creatures of habit. Once they’re comfortable with certain drugs or treatments, they tend to return to them whenever possible. If they’ve experienced success with a pain medication, several factors might lead them to continue to use that drug.

Whatever the reason, providers like to use medications that they are familiar with and have had success with. Unless there is a compelling reason, they are unlikely to change their prescribing habits.
