I wonder: An old lady with ca. mammae c.met. come from the local hospital to a permanent nursing home.
She had a lot of medication and was not good controlled by her pain.
The anestesiologist had a special note: GIVE DOLCONTIN (ORAL) CAPSEL IN RECTUM.
I had never heard about that, and called the only 24 hour open pharmacy in town: No, they had not heard about it. The absorb. would be very unreliable, depending on the colon and fæsces amount, they said to me.
The pt herself insisted, and her daughters husband was a medicla doctor, but of course a psychiatrist, so he said : listen to the pt. So I did. The pf. fall asleep, but this can not be a safe way to adm. Dolcontin on?
Anybody heard about it before?
