I have need for any suggestions - I have a pt in chronic pain who it has been an issue to get her pain meds increased. I was able to get her 3mg Dilaudid q3, but her pain is never under control and she asks for her next dose at least an hour before she is due. (Pinched nerve pain and possible beginning of CA pain).
She is allergic to morphine, ASA, percocet and I think NSAIDs also. Can anyone think of some alternative pain therapy that might help? I can't think of anything to suggest to the MDs - I feel like I only harass the MDs about her uncontrolled pain.
