Pain meds and control for severe post concussion symptoms

  1. 0 Hi Everyone,

    I am new to Neuro Nursing,in fact, I am just orientating as well.

    To add to that I am also dealing with my hubby having a TBI Left Hemi; it happened a month ago.

    My question is, What pain meds are you seen being used to treat moderate to severe head pain, headache, and post concussive syndrome with a closed brain injury?

    We were in the ER last night, again, and he was prescribed Ativan, Gravol, and given Morphine; all with good effect for the first time in a month.

    THank-you in advance,
